Birmingham Cyber Crime Lawyers

Navigating the Complexities of Computer & Internet Crimes

When you need a Birmingham criminal lawyer who can navigate the complexities of cyber crime defense, the team at Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C. are here to fight for your rights. Computers and the internet are still relatively new to the world, and as a result regulations for their use are often murky. Many cyber laws are vague and law enforcement agencies have been known to overreact towards targets for prosecution. In addition, there are still questions regarding jurisdiction of many cases.

Serious cyber crimes such as identity theft and sex crimes are considered class B felonies in Alabama, with first-time convictions punishable by up to 20 years in prison. If you have been charged with an internet crime, you need a Birmingham cyber crime attorney who is familiar with technology and the laws surrounding it. Our experienced team is known for its understanding of the law and will work to help you in this tough time.

The Knowledge & Defense You Need

We will defend you against charges of internet and computer crimes such as:

  • Identity theft
  • Financial fraud and scams
  • Illegal file sharing
  • Hacking
  • Cyber stalking
  • Piracy
  • Gambling
  • Sexting
  • Possession of child pornography

Our Birmingham cyber crime attorneys will investigate the charges and prepare for all possible outcomes based on the evidence and on the client’s requests. We have in-depth understanding of both cyber laws and the Court process at the local, state, and federal levels and can inform clients of what to expect before even entering the courtroom.

Protecting You from the Court of Public Opinion

When it comes to cyber crimes such as identity theft, sex crimes, and piracy, the accused are often automatically considered guilty in certain circles. Even a complete lack of evidence will not stop corporations, politicians, or the general public from pressuring for an aggressive prosecution and harsh punishment. Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C. has been defending clients for over 75 years combined and will cut through the court of public opinion to get to the facts of a difficult case. We keep each client well-informed and make sure they understand the pros and cons of each decision before choosing how to proceed.
