Violent Crimes Defense Backed By Experience, Skill And Aggressive Advocacy
If you’ve been charged with a violent crime, you likely already know what’s at stake. Alabama is a death penalty state and has laws that allow for life sentences without the possibility of parole. As such, your choice of attorney cannot be made lightly. You need an aggressive advocate with the experience and skill to outwork and outperform prosecutors.
That’s what you’ll find when you contact The Atkins Firm, P.C. With more than a decade in practice, attorney Atkins has considerable experience taking on some of the toughest violent crimes charges in Alabama.
Representing Clients Against A Wide Range Of Serious Criminal Charges
Ms. Atkins has defended clients against all manner of violent crimes charges, including those related to:
- Robbery and armed robbery
- Sexual assault
- Hate crimes
- Domestic violence
- Weapons offenses
- Capital murder (in which a conviction could result in the death sentence)
Many criminal defense attorneys practice for decades without representing a client charged with murder. Since the firm was founded in 2011, Ms. Atkins has represented clients in numerous murder and capital murder cases. She understands the stakes of these cases and works tirelessly to give her clients the strongest possible defense. She is calm under pressure and prepared to counter any arguments the prosecution may pose.
Fighting To Help Clients Avoid A Life Sentence
Under certain circumstances, some of the offenses listed above can result in a life sentence even if the defendant had no prior conditions. Other offenses could result in life without the possibility of parole if the defendant had numerous prior felony convictions. This is because of Alabama’s controversial Habitual Felony Offender Act (HFOA).
If you’ve been charged with a Class A felony and have previous felony convictions on your record, you may be at risk of a potential life sentence under the HFOA mandates. Therefore, it is even more important to seek help from a skilled and experienced attorney like Ms. Atkins. She cares about your rights and freedom as much as you do, and will do everything in her power to protect both.
