My name is James M. Byrd and I'm a Mobile, Alabama criminal defense attorney. I was born in Mobile and graduated from Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery. Following that I attended Duke University and graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in Political Science and History. I come from a family of criminal defense lawyers and I always had a desire to become a criminal defense attorney.

After my college graduation I decided to attend The University of Alabama School of Law. In 1979 I graduated and passed the Alabama State Bar. I moved immediately to Mobile to begin my criminal practice with experienced criminal defense attorneys. I have continued that practice every day since October 1979.
