Tuscaloosa Vandalism Defense Lawyers

Using a Team Approach to Your Defense Case

Vandalism is often charged to juveniles or those under the age of 21. While it can also be an adult crime, it is not an offense defined under Alabama law. If you or someone you know has been accused of vandalism or some type of property damage, you will likely be charged with criminal mischief or criminal tampering. The degree of the offense depends on how much damage was done and other circumstances.

To defend yourself and attempt to avoid criminal consequences for these charges, you will need the legal counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney. The Glasscox Law Firm LLC offers a legal team of trial lawyers who have decades of practice in defending individuals of these and all other crimes. Our firm serves individuals throughout Jefferson, Blount, Bibb, Pickens and Tuscaloosa Counties, as well as those attending or working at the University of Alabama.
