Tennessee Criminal Law

An experienced attorney fighting for your rights.
If you have been charged with a crime in Tennessee, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. For 30 years, I have been defending the rights of my clients across the state. I have built a reputation on getting results, and I am intimately familiar with the many facets of the Tennessee criminal justice system. I have the knowledge and skill to make sure you understand your legal options and to guide you through the legal process.

I have represented clients in state and federal courts on charges ranging from minor offenses to serious felonies, including:

  • Assault and battery
  • DWI / DUI / OWI
  • Possession of drugs and drug trafficking
  • Theft and larceny
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Arson
  • Rape
  • Homicide — murder/manslaughter, including death penalty defense
  • Domestic violence
  • White-collar crime
  • Appeals to the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals and the Tennessee Supreme Court
  • and more

When you have charges on your record that you want eliminated, I can help you determine if those charges can be sealed or expunged, or represent you in appellate court.

Going the extra mile to fight for your freedom
At my Nashville, Tennessee office, I go the extra mile to ensure that you get the justice you deserve. I have taken an oath to provide exemplary service — an oath that I am dedicated to honoring. Through meticulous preparation and firm attention to detail, my efforts are always focused on achieving that goal. I personally speak with witnesses; comb through police records; and thoroughly examine the alleged crime scene. If necessary, I also bring in experts who help to prepare trial strategy and challenge the prosecution.
