If you have been accused of DUI in Cullman, you don’t have to face it alone. Price, Flowers & Ward Law Firm will stand with you through each step of your case and fight to protect you from a DUI conviction.

Our firm has been representing clients charged with DUI in the Municipal Court of Cullman, Alabama for many years. Cullman Municipal Court DUI charges are somewhat different from DUI charges in Alabama’s State Courts.  Cullman does not have its own specific DUI ordinance.  Instead it has an ordinance that makes it a crime against the City of Cullman to do any act that is a misdemeanor under Alabama state law. This ordinance applies in Cullman’s city limits and police jurisdiction.  (A copy of the entire ordinance can be found further down this page.)  When the Cullman City Police charge you with DUI, they usually charge you with violating this ordinance, not with violating the Alabama’s DUI law directly.
