A Multi-Faceted Alabama Law Firm

If you are currently struggling with an issue concerning family, civil, or municipal law — or if you require criminal defense and/or estate planning assistance — contact a skilled Alabama attorney now.
In addition to being emotionally draining for spouses and their children, divorces are often extremely expensive and time-consuming. We have helped numerous Alabama clients dissolve their marriages quickly and affordably. We can help with all family law matters, including mediation, divorce, child custody, child support, division of property and debts, spousal support (alimony/maintenance), adoption, modifications, and enforcements.
We can help you understand your legal options when it comes to holding another person or party accountable for their actions, as well as defend your rights if you are being sued. If you are a successful plaintiff, you can expect to receive financial compensation for your ordeal that can be used to address the economic and noneconomic costs of a defendant’s negligence or misconduct. In the case of our defendant clients, we can help you put this matter behind you once and for all.
Environmental law encompasses both regulatory compliance issues and civil litigation associated with environmental matters. If you are a representative of a federal, state or local agency who is struggling with a difficult legal issue related to environmental regulation or litigation — or an Alabama business owner who’s confronting a similar problem — we can be a valuable resource. We offer viable solutions to problems concerning regulatory compliance or environmental litigation, and are eager to help you meet your own environmental law challenges head on.
In practice, municipal law concerns civic matters that are under the jurisdiction of local governing authorities. These include the bylaws and ordinances that are necessary for a municipality to function effectively and peaceably. If you are an elected or appointed public official in Alabama grappling with legal challenges regarding zoning, permitting, land use, or other matters of local government, you should schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
At Watson & Neeley, LLC, we provide aggressive and experienced legal representation for all felonies and misdemeanors, including cases involving driving under the influence (DUI), weapons charges, drug crimes, assault, white collar crimes, domestic violence allegations, juvenile defense, and others. Put 60 years of legal experience in your corner — call us today.
Estate planning involves making decisions about how your assets will be distributed among your heirs and beneficiaries following your death. We can help you establish a will that guarantees your property will reach your heirs according to your wishes. Additionally, we can lead the executor of a will — either yours or that of someone else — through probate court with a minimum of time and expense. This doesn’t just mean complying with the rules and regulations surrounding probate court in Alabama; it means shielding wealth from unscrupulous creditors and redundant taxation at every phase of the probate process.
More often than not, one party will be disappointed by the outcome of a trial or civil suit. The dedicated team at Watson & Neeley, LLC has been assisting Alabama residents with appeals cases for more than six decades. If you are currently unsatisfied with a recent verdict, give us a call today.
