Standing up for the accused

The Shelnutt Law Firm represents those accused of drug-related crimes. Most drug cases are prosecuted at the state level but can be sent to the federal level depending on the laws in violation. Our team members know Alabama and Federal drug laws inside and out, and we’ve helped many accused people avoid damaging convictions.

When you hire our firm to represent you, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing a very capable team is focusing its efforts on preserving your reputation and working to keep these charges from negatively affecting your future.

Our goal is to see your drug charges reduced or dismissed

Your defense starts with a full investigation of the alleged criminal activities. When it comes down to an officer’s word against yours, it is often the officer’s word that carries more weight, despite the credo of “innocent until proven guilty.”

In some cases, police officers have used force or become physically violent without due cause. If evidence against you was obtained through illegal methods, we may be able to get the case thrown out. If illegal search and seizure led to your arrest, the findings of the search may be inadmissible. If the officer failed to read you your Miranda rights, statements and confessions given may be suppressed. If your constitutional rights were violated in any manner during the arrest process, the Shelnutt Law Firm will work to establish proof and present evidence that could help your case.

On your side all the way

If we are unable to get charges dismissed or reduced, or secure reduced sentencing or alternative punishment, we are fully prepared to go to trial to fight for our clients. The Shelnutt Law Firm handles all types of drug defense cases including:
