Jeremy Wayne Armstrong

also known as Armstrong Justice League, P.C.

About me

I am strictly a Criminal Defense Attorney since October of 2000.  My prior years as a Death Penalty and Violent Crimes Prosecutor gives me the advantage of seeing not only the "strengths" of the prosecution's case; but also the "weaknesses" in the prosecution's case.  Althougth I represent Client's in most criminal matters, my areas of concentration are Capital Murder (where my Client is facing a sentence of the Death Penalty or Life Without the Possibility of Parole), violent crimes, sex crimes, and sex abuse crimes.  As for Capital Murder cases, where mosts attorneys handle only a few of these serious cases in their career, I have represented over thirty (30) clients charged with Capital Murder.  Of those thirty (30) capital clients, twenty-six (26) have been tried to conclusion where only four (4) of those twenty-six (26) capital clients were convicted of Capital Murder.  The remaining twenty-two (22) capital clients were convicted of a lesser offense, found NOT GUILTY or the case was DISMISSED.  ADDITIONALLY, over the last few years, my law firm has seen a significant increase in individuals being FALSELY accused of sex abuse of children (child molestation) due to a variety of factors (divorce, child custody dispute, step-child upset over disciplinary punishment by step-parent, etc....)  PLEASE BE AWARE.  In Alabama, if you plead guilty or convicted of ANY misdemeanor or felony sex offense; you will be REQUIRED to register as a sex offender for the REST OF YOUR NATURAL LIFE!!!  A client's BEST CHANCE to have the BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME in his/her case is at the "trial level."  If you choose to be represented by a Public Defender at the "trial level" and are convicted...........there is not much a "retained/hired" criminal defense attorney can do AFTER you are convicted.  The success rate in "overturning" criminal convictions on appeal in Alabama is "no more than 10%!"  Therefore, it is always best to HIRE a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you at the trial level and SOON after your initial arrest.
