Why Hire Me

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you could qualify to have a public defender appointed or choose to represent yourself. You could also hire attorney James Alston, and here are a few reasons why doing so could be in your best interest.


If your freedom is on the line, it’s important to choose an attorney whose practice revolves solely around representing criminal defendants. That way, you can be sure that the lawyer is dedicated to preserving the rights of innocent clients rather than simply going through the motions.


When it comes to interviewing witnesses, James Alston is well-versed at asking just the right questions whether talking to an expert witness or bystander. Since witness testimony can often impact a case extensively, using the right tactics to cross-examine an individual is very important.


Every criminal case requires an extensive investigation into the matter in order to ensure the client’s rights have not been violated or to look for exculpatory evidence that would serve to prove a defendant is innocent. Mr. Alston will leave no stone unturned in his quest to find evidence that will be useful to your case, or better yet, to find ways that the government’s evidence can be lawfully suppressed.


Mr. Alston knows that criminal defendants can sometimes be arrested due to a poor decision or could even be innocent of the act they are charged with. As such, he will never pass judgment on you, but instead will work hard in pursuit of the best possible outcome no matter what the situation is. Criminal charges are very complicated, so they require a strong legal defense. When faced with life-changing consequences, there’s no-one better to turn to than James Alston.
