Successful Appellate Work
I have handled a number of appeals both at the State and Federal level successfully.  I practice before the Alabama Courts of Criminal and Civil Appeals, the Alabama Supreme Court, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.  More importantly, I work closely with my clients on each new case, to determine the best resolution to their unique legal situations.
Often, in serious criminal cases, defense counsel will seek representation from an experienced Appellate Lawyer to preserve issues on appeal and protect their client's rights in the event of an adverse finding.  In some cases, after a conviction, attorneys and clients often seek an appellate lawyer with a track record of success to handle the appeal. I have that experience.
Located in Birmingham, and serving communities throughout Alabama, The Law Offices of Joseph A. Ingram has handled numerous State and Federal appeals.  Attorney Ingram understands how to review a court record for error that could lead to a reversal or a new trial.  He also understands how to protect his clients' interests during trial, preserving any perceived error for appeal in the event of an unfavorable decision.
Federal Criminal Appeals are tremendously complex. After a conviction, many people turn to a new lawyer with specific experience in Federal Criminal Appeals. Attorney Joseph Ingram has that experience. He can assist you with any large-scale Federal Criminal Appeal in the country.  He has argued federal criminal appeals in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
I vigorously defend my clients during every stage of the legal process, including the appellate level.  Contact my office today to arrange your initial confidential consultation at (205) 335-2640 or contact my office online.

Alabama Federal Criminal Investigation
White Collar Crime - Criminal Fraud - Money Laundering
Federal charges are typically different than State charges, and the federal government typically investigates charges thoroughly before making a formal arrest.  Often when one is arrested by federal agents, they have a strong case. That is why it is important to retain an experienced Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as you learn you may be under investigation.  I have the knowledge and experience you need and am ready to vigorously defend your case.
Most often your reputation, job and livelihood are on the line.  Often, people may be facing federal charges.  My firm stresses the importance of seeking legal help as soon as possible before an investigation turns into a criminal charge.
When your future is on the line, take immediate action against charges of a white-collar crime.  Contact Joseph Ingram today at (205) 335-2640 to arrange your free and confidential consultation.

Potential Federal Investigation
The federal government has virtually unlimited resources to build a case against you.
The government has four things that citizens do not have; Time, Money, Resources and Power.
