John C. Robbins

Attorney at Law

Even before law school, I knew I wanted to be a defense attorney for people who have been charged with a crime. Being able to think strategically and build a strong case — while helping people fight for their freedom at the same time — was a challenge I was willing to take on each and every day that I walked into a courtroom. If you've been charged with homicide, drug crimes, DUI, domestic violence, or white-collar crimes and live in Birmingham, Alabama and the surrounding communities, call today to schedule a free consultation. I have served clients from Bessemer, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Mobile, and all over Jefferson County.


"Sometimes my clients just need a friend; they need an advocate on their side."


Proven Effectiveness with Homicide Defense

If you have been charged with homicide, murder, or manslaughter, your life is at stake because of the serious consequences you could be facing like life in prison. In order to increase your chances of an avoided conviction, turn to a criminal defense attorney who has proven themselves to be an advocate who will do everything to fight for their client, from start to finish.

For more than 30 years, I have represented clients on more than 200 murder cases, in most of which my client received a pleasing result. If you live in Birmingham, Alabama and have been charged with homicide, I'm the one to call.

My biggest piece of advice to those who have been recently charged with something as serious as homicide: call me immediately and don't say a word until I arrive. The police may try to coerce you into digging yourself a grave, but you have rights and one of them is to remain silent.

Once we are working together, I will work tirelessly to make sure your rights are protected and your voice heard. Do not hesitate to call now and schedule a free consultation; the longer you wait, the longer the prosecution has to build a case against you.




Whether your charge is homicide, murder, or manslaughter, I have represented more than 200 clients, protecting their rights and giving them a voice every step of the way.
