Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I have over twenty-four (24) years of extensive experience in the areas of civil and criminal law in Alabama’s state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. Specializing in both civil and criminal cases has given me a unique advantage over most attorneys because I have learned techniques that are applicable to both disciplines of the law. For most of my legal career, I have had a BV Rating from Martindale-Hubbell peer review rating. My practice areas have been criminal defense, state and federal appellate practice, particularly with an emphasis on death penalty cases, harassment, employment discrimination and retaliation, wrongful death, personal injuries, and malicious prosecution. In Alabama, five Death Row inmates have been exonerated. I successfully represented Wesley Quick, the 5th exoneree, on his appeal. I also worked with Barry Scheck and Nina Morrison from The Innocence Project to obtain the release of an Alabama inmate through DNA evidence.

  • Contingent Fees
    I take civil cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you do not pay me a fee unless and until I recover for you.
  • Rates, Retainers and Additional Information
    I take criminal cases on either an hourly or flat fee basis. It has been my experience that the best payment option is usually to set a fee because I often put more work into your case then I would have been compensated for if I had charged by the hour. For criminal cases, I require a retainer (down payment), and I will work out a payment plan with you. I also accept Visa and MasterCard.

Professional Experience
Stephen Strickland Law
I started working as a law clerk for Richard Jaffe in 1987 when Mr. Jaffe was a partner at Jaffe, Burton & Digiorgio, P.C., and I became an associate there in 1990 upon graduation from law school. When Richard Jaffe decided to establish his own practice, I followed Mr. Jaffe as an associate and later became his partner at Jaffe & Strickland, P.C. Later, Derek Drennan and Hube Dodd would become associates and then partners at Jaffe, Strickland, Drennan & Dodd, P.C. I am currently a solo practitioner, but both Hube Dodd and I remain as "of counsel" with Jaffe & Drennan, P.C.
