Background and Experience
With over 23 years of experience in Tuscaloosa representing those injured in auto accidents and those accused of breaking the law, Michael J. Upton has handled thousands of cases in every local court, and many courts around the state. He is a Courtroom Lawyer. What this means is very simple: he will do his best work when your life and livelihood are on the line in court. Whether it’s a Murder case, or injuries or death of a loved one as a result of an accident, you want someone that will stand in the courtroom with no fear, and fight for you, even when nobody else is on your side.
Mr. Upton's experience includes representation in alcohol offenses, specifically ‘Driving Under the Influence’, ‘Public Intoxication’ and ‘Minor in Possession of Alcohol’. I also represent those whose Driving Privileges have been suspended or revoked (Driver License Suspension) by the Department of Public Safety. Under a new law, I can also help to ‘expunge’ (clear) your arrest record.
Regardless of the nature of the charge, nobody should go to court alone, and those accused should only hire an attorney that specializes in criminal defense.
