Put Our Defense Lawyers In Your Corner When Facing Felony Charges

Last updated on April 14, 2023

Even if you know nothing else about criminal law, you almost certainly know that felony charges are serious and can bring severe consequences. Alabama’s criminal justice system is harsher than those in most states, and a felony conviction can result in lifelong consequences. You may lose your voting rights, gun ownership rights and the right to hold certain professional licenses.

The most important thing you can do when facing felony charges is to consult with a defense attorney who will fight to protect your rights and freedom. In Auburn, Phenix City and the surrounding areas, you can find the help you’re looking for at Cooper & Cooper, Attorneys at Law, LLC. Our two attorneys have more than 40 years of combined experience, and we treat each case and client as a top priority.

An Overview Of Alabama Felony Offenses

There are three types of criminal offenses in our state. They include, in order of increasing severity: Violations, misdemeanors and felonies. The most basic difference between a misdemeanor offense and a felony is the potential jail time (less than one year vs. a year or more).

Felonies are further broken down into four classes, each with its own sentencing guidelines. They include:

  • Class A: 10-99 years in prison
  • Class B: 2-20 years in prison
  • Class C: 1-10 years in prison
  • Class D: 1-5 years in prison

Common felonies include crimes like domestic violence, rape, kidnapping, arson, burglary and murder. Certain felony offenses come with mandatory minimum sentences, including child sex offenses, gun crimes and hate crimes.

We Seek The Most Favorable Outcome In Each Case

We represent adult clients of all ages, including college students in the greater Auburn area. We understand that no two clients are identical, which is why we take a unique approach to every case.

Our attorneys will take the time to get to know you and will craft a legal strategy based on your needs and goals. Sometimes, that means fighting the charges in court. Other times, it could mean a negotiated plea deal that helps you avoid or minimize jail time. As the person who will be most impacted by the outcome of your case, you should get to decide how it is resolved.
