Alabama DUI Lawyer

Alabama, like many other states, includes both a criminal case and an Alabama Department of Public Safety (DPS) driver’s license case following an arrest for drunk driving. You only have 10 days to file an appeal to the pending administrative license suspension, which is triggered by Alabama DUI laws, following your criminal arrest. The consequences for an arrest for DUI are serious, which is why you need to get in touch with a qualified Alabama DUI attorney as soon as you are charged with driving under the influence. By immediately contacting a DUI lawyer, the events surrounding the DUI arrest will still be fresh in your mind and you will have a better chance of having a positive outcome with your DUI case.

At Polson & Polson, P.C., having a full understanding of Alabama DUI laws, a long-term professional relationship with court personnel in the various DUI court locations in our State’s Municipal Court system, and intense case preparation are key. We also handle all cases with a team approach, ensuring that you benefit from our collective years of experience. Our goal is to take the STRESS off your shoulders, shift the burden to us, and to craft an excellent outcome for your case. Our criminal attorneys and staff will treat you like FAMILY.


Every criminal defense attorney in our office brings unique criminal court knowledge and litigation experience that translates to a formidable criminal defense for our clients who have been charged with driving under the influence or other criminal charges. We understand how it feels to be accused of a DUI, and we also know that the burden of proof is placed on the government to overcome your presumption of innocence. It’s this understanding that forms the basis of how we provide representation to Alabama residents.

Our DUI law firm is committed to continuing education. By attending advanced litigation training courses and other continuing legal educational seminars and workshops, we are able to stay abreast of cutting-edge methods of winning DUI cases through challenging the breathalyzer or a field sobriety test. These legal seminars are our opportunity to learn innovative ways to defend misdemeanor and felony cases as well as gain valuable insights into forensic testing, scientific laboratory analysis, and jury selection techniques targeted to successful DUI defense for our clients who face tough Alabama DUI penalties, if convicted.
