Alabama's new Expungement statute goes into effect in July.  Generally speaking, 'expungement' is a process that allows someone to clear their criminal record.  Not everyone with a criminal record will qualify, but for those that do, it can open doors that would have otherwise been closed.  I look forward to representing people that will apply to expunge their record.  Here's a short summary by my friend Stephanie taylor from the Tuscaloosa News.  I'll be posting more information as we move forward.

Thursday evening (5/29) at 6:30, I will making my second guest appearance on WVUA TV's "Law Call", sponsored by the law firm of Prince, Glover & Hayes.

Our topic will be "DUI". I look forward to discussing this interesting and always evolving area of the law.

Tuscaloosa continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and I am proud to be a part of that growth.

My office is conveniently located downtown at 2527 University Boulevard, just three blocks from the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse and three blocks from Tuscaloosa Municipal Court.

Just one block to my east, the new Embassy Suites is nearing completion. Less than a half block to my northwest, the new Hilton Home 2 Suites Hotel will soon begin construction.

Directly across University Boulevard from my office, construction will soon begin on a new bank building.

People always joke with me ‘I sure hope I don’t need your services’. Most of the time, they don’t.

But everyone usually knows a friend or family member that runs into a problem with law enforcement that results in an arrest.

Regardless of the situation, I’ll be glad to help. In minor cases involving visitors, sometimes I am able to resolve the case without the defendant returning to Tuscaloosa for court.

I look forward to hearing from you if the need arises.

Student Discount

By Michael J. Upton

I offer discounted fees to college students in some cases.

College life is tough enough.  Classes, exams, extracurricular activities, trying to maintain a social life, being away from home. Life can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to money.  Once upon a time, I was there.

In certain cases, I am willing to reduce my fees in order to assist you.  Ask me about this during your free consultation.
