Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Ken Gomany is one of the most well-regarded criminal defense lawyers in the Birmingham area. As an attorney, I have many criminal defense attorney contacts, and if I, or any member of family, needed a criminal lawyer, Ken would be my first phone call, which says a lot. He is always extremely helpful when I have a question about sentencing guidelines, plea agreements, dismissals, and any other criminal issue I have with my own clients. I recommend Ken without hesitation."
