Mobile Criminal Law Lawyer


My name is James M. Byrd and I’m a Mobile, Alabama criminal defense attorney. I was born in Mobile and graduated from Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery. Following that I attended Duke University and graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in Political Science and History. I come from a family of criminal defense lawyers and I always had a desire to become a criminal defense attorney.

After my college graduation I decided to attend The University of Alabama School of Law. In 1979 I graduated and passed the Alabama State Bar. I moved immediately to Mobile to begin my criminal practice with experienced criminal defense attorneys. I have continued that practice every day since October 1979.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Jim has the wisdom of Solomon, the patient of Job and the ability of St. Paul to plow through the toughest of cases. Our autistic son had some issues which required legal expertise and Jim was our hero in resolving them. His knowledge of the law, his dedication to justice was great. He has helped us enough that he is like a member of our family! I would never hesitate using him again, should the need arise.
