Our Commitment to You

We Uphold and Maintain the Presumption of Innocence

An undeniable cornerstone of the criminal process is the presumption of innocence, a Constitutional guarantee for anyone charged with a crime.

In everyday terms, this is the concept that someone is innocent until proven guilty. In recent years, with information and news spreading across the globe the second an event or scandal occurs, it feels more and more like there is a presumption of guilt, that alleged offenders must prove they are innocent rather than the prosecution needing to prove they are guilty.

Albert J. Sauline, III, Attorney at Law wholeheartedly ensures the presumption of innocence alive and well. Everyone deserves a fair trial, to tell their story in Court without first being painted as guilty by the news media, society, the Judge, and the jury.

When you have Panama City Criminal Defense Attorney Al Sauline in your corner, you can be confident that the criminal justice system will be kept honest and held to the highest standards.
