We are dedicated to ensuring that all of your rights are jealously guarded.If you are being investigated for or have been accused of a crime, it is essential that you seek qualified representation as early as possible. If criminal charges or an investigation threaten you, your loved ones or your business, then you should seek a criminal defense lawyer who is fully prepared and ready to protect you from the serious consequences of a criminal accusation. In many cases, the best way to represent those investigated for or accused of a crime is to defeat or derail a prosecution before it even begins. Having a qualified attorney early in the investigation can avoid complications in your defense later on in the legal process.

If you are charged with a crime, there are opportunities to exploit the strengths in your case and the weaknesses in our opponent’s accusations. By taking advantage of those strengths and exploiting those weaknesses, Derek Drennan has won acquittals for offenses ranging from assault, arson and capital murder successfully litigated motions to suppress evidence leading to dismissals and include victories at both the Alabama Supreme Court and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
