Criminal Defense Lawyer in Chattanooga, TN

You Have a Right to Defend Yourself

A police investigation is a nasty thing and they can be ruthless. The justice system can seem unforgiving, but you don't have to fight them alone.

Real Communication, Honest Advice

It's your constitutional right and both the Tennessee constitution and the Federal Constitution guarantee you this. Whether it's a misdemeanor or a felony, a criminal lawyer can help you. The goal of law enforcement is to build a case against you and their primary goal is to get information from you. They are your opposition. They want to build their case against you, and they certainly won't help you.

Your criminal lawyer is the barrier between prison and freedom and your first line of defense when you're up against law enforcement. A defense lawyer is someone who helps make important decisions when no one else will help.

You Deserve the Best

You'll have the legal advice you need and the professionals that can defend you on your side.
