Criminal Defense Attorney in Bessemer, Alabama

Felonies | Misdemeanors | Theft Offenses | Drug Crimes | Assault | Domestic Violence


If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor, you want an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. The criminal justice system can be confusing and intimidating, with a language of its own and rules that seem designed specifically for prosecutors. You want an attorney who knows the laws and procedures, who has effectively defended people charged with similar crimes.

At the law office of Ginette A. Dow, I bring more than 19 years of criminal defense experience to people in Shelby County and Jefferson County. I have served as a Lakeview city judge for over nine years, and have personally presided over many criminal cases. I have a thorough understanding of criminal laws and procedures, and can anticipate the strategies district attorneys will use to pursue a conviction.

I emphasize personal service and open communication is all dealings with my clients. I will take the time to learn the unique aspects of your case, so that I can tailor my representation to get the outcome you want. I will advise you immediately of any developments in your case, and will make certain you understand your options, as well as your likelihood of success, so that you can make good decisions that protect your future.
