Handling Cases in Municipal, State & Federal Court
At Guster Law Firm, LLC, our Birmingham criminal defense attorneys handle a variety of criminal cases for our clients, including felony and misdemeanor cases in municipal, state, and federal court. We have included a brief description of these to provide a better understanding of what you may be up against and how we can help.
Municipal Court Cases
Municipal or city court is usually where misdemeanor cases such as marijuana possession, shoplifting, and assault are handled. Punishment for these can range from a fine up to up to a year in jail. However, more serious cases such as DUI, domestic violence, and gun possession can come with heavier penalties, depending on the circumstances surrounding the case. Our Birmingham criminal defense lawyers are equipped to handle all types of misdemeanors in municipal court.
State Criminal Cases
State cases are heard in district and circuit court. They can include felonies such as drug possession, theft, assault, credit card fraud, forgery, drug trafficking, attempted murder, murder, and capital murder. Crimes heard in these courts carry a punishment of at least one year in prison. More severe charges come with heavier penalties. Sentencing for capital murder, for example, can include life in prison, life without parole, or the death penalty.
Once a person is arrested, they need to hire an attorney immediately to protect their rights and their freedom. The team of criminal defense attorneys at Guster Law Firm, LLC have 40 years of combined experience to handle your problems. We recommend that you act quickly to involve our firm if you have been arrested or even accused of any type of felony offense.
Federal laws that have been violated are heard in federal court. These crimes may include wire fraud, drug trafficking, mail fraud, and conspiracy. Federal court is often intimidating to many lawyers, but our firm handles cases in federal court on a regular basis. We are not afraid to face off against federal agents and prosecutors to protect our clients’ rights, and we use our trial experience to pursue the best possible result in every federal case we handle.
