What you should know about Tennessee Criminal Law
The justice system - criminal law - is primarily handled at the state level, and the enforcement of laws varies from state to state. such as blood alcohol level limits, the use of illegal drugs by pregnant women, DUI penalties and options for drug court, etc. The best way to navigate criminal law is to hire an attorney with knowledge and experience practicing criminal defense in Tennessee.
Cases I have handled
My background in criminal defense law includes cases that dealt with:

If your case doesn’t fall under one of these categories, I will happily sit down to discuss your unique case and determine how I might be able to help. I will never turn someone away if my experience can benefit their case.
Why you shouldn’t represent yourself
Many people think representing themselves is a good idea to save money, but the result of their case often leads them to hire counsel more than halfway into their case, causing more harm than good and not avoiding legal fees at all.
If you are charged with a crime, it is a serious matter, and you should seek legal counsel right away. Securing representation early can lead to better case results. Whether you need a lawyer for a misdemeanor, felony charge, probation violations, community corrections violations, contempt charges, post-conviction relief or appeals, the time to seek legal advice is now.
