Criminal Defense Lawyers

Our Law Firm Philosophy 

We are Tennessee criminal defense attorneys that practice in the general sessions and state courts of Tennessee. Our philosophy with our clients is very simple – be honest and communicate. Setting unrealistic expectations will inevitably lead to an unhappy client and have a negative impact on our reputation. We believe it is important as an attorney to understand that many of our clients have never been through this process, and that it is important to ensure they understand how the case will proceed and generally how the court system works. Failing to explain the court system to a client is an invitation for frustration. Cases may take multiple court appearances prior to resolving and with respect to more serious charges, can take years.
