Attorney in Bessemer, Alabama

Criminal Defense | Family Law


At the law office of Ginette A. Dow, I have protected the rights of individuals and businesses in Jefferson County and Shelby County since 1991. I firmly believe that effective lawyer-client relationships are built on trust and communication. I take a straightforward approach in all matters, keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options and the potential consequences of different legal strategies. I will always give you an honest assessment of your likelihood of getting the results you want.

When you hire me to handle a criminal or family law matter, you will always work directly with me. I will take the time to listen closely to the facts of your case, so that I can identify all potential legal issues as well as the most effective strategies to get the outcome you seek. I have served as a city judge in Lakeview since 2001, and have presided over many criminal cases. I understand the laws and procedures in the criminal justice system, and know how to anticipate the tactics that prosecutors will use. I use cutting edge technology to stay current with all trends and developments in the law.
