Fighting for the Criminally-Accused Former Police Officer-Turned-Defense Attorney

Criminal Defense Attorney in Murfreesboro

Protecting Your Rights & Fighting for Your Best Interests

If you’ve been charged with a crime in Tennessee, you need strong legal defense right away. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor traffic offense or a first-degree murder charge, retaining experienced counsel is essential.

If you fail to get effective advocacy, you could be convicted and face:

  • Probation
  • Expensive fines
  • Community service
  • Revoked driving privileges
  • Extensive jail or prison time

In addition to the penalties listed above, a conviction will show up anytime someone conducts a background check on your past. This may deter property owners from renting you their living space, lenders from giving you loans, and employers from hiring you.
