Great advice
Called Mr. Segal on a Saturday, he told me some good advice. He couldn’t take my case because it was out of his jurisdiction.

Andrew Segal
Mr. Segal got 4 charges dismissed on my behalf. They included: Attempting to Flee and Elude, Reckless Driving, Driving While License Suspended, and No Tag. He is an excellent negotiator and he works for his clients. Mr. Segal is extremely fair with his rates and his demeanor is very straight forward. He is honest and tells you the range of expected outcomes based on numerous years as a cop, lawyer, judge, and prosecutor. I would recommend him and his law firm without an hesitation and with no doubt that he will exceed any expectations you have on an outcome. Hands down the best criminal defense attorney in Alabama. Hire him!!!

Very wonderful and effective lawyer.
Mr. Segal was a very fast and efficient lawyer. I would have never expected things to move so fast (in a positive way). I was with a appointed lawyer for nearly a year and a half and nothing was done. The DAY that Mr. Segal was hired he already had the ball rolling for a program of recovery with possibility of never being sentenced. I would recommend him to anyone that needs true and proper legal counsel.

Highly Recommend Attorney Segal
Attorney Segal was excellent. My son was falsely accused, and I was scared to death for him. Segal was honest, upfront, and on top of everything. He ALWAYS returned my calls promptly and answered all of my questions and concerns. He made sure my son was represented and that the investigator heard truth. As such, my son was never charged and this will never go on his record. I highly recommend Segal to defend your rights.

Best lawyer in Huntsville
This was my first time needing a lawyer. All I have to say was he got the job done, and even though I was panicking, he definetly exceeded my expectations. If I ever needed a lawyer again, he would be the person I go to. Thanks again Andrew Segal.

Mr. Segal is the best lawyer in my opinion in Huntsville, Alabama. I would recommend him to anyone that is needing a lawyer.
I had court today and was so scared. I was facing jail time for breaking my probation. Mr. Segal was awesome. Although, we are scheduled back to court in a week, due to circumstances out of his control, I did not go to jail. Mr. Segal is straight forward and didn't sugar coat anything with me. However, he did his job and I couldn't thank him enough for keeping me out of jail and explaining to the Judge my circumstances. Mr. Segal, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Words will never be enough to thank him for everything he has done for me.

A really caring and professional office of Attorneys
I haven't been to court yet but I did retain him as my lawyer. In just my meeting with him I could tell right away that he is very caring and will work hard on my case for me. I felt like he is very smart at what he does and he is a down to earth type of man. In saying that I mean he is very professional but he talks to you in words that regular people (other then lawyer talk) can understand. I am 100% confident that he and his wife will do there best on my case.
