Chattanooga Criminal Defense and DUI Attorney

Many of the characteristics that make me a valued family law attorney also serve my criminal defense clients well. I am careful to listen to each client's view of what happened and how he or she wants to fight the charges.

I understand the nuances of criminal law and the flexibility that prosecutors have when negotiating plea agreements. I enter into negotiations only after assessing the facts of a case and determining that it is in the best interest of my client. If the facts of a case warrant going to trial, I will use my courtroom experience to see it through.

 

Because no one is served by unrealistic expectations, I provide straightforward assessments of both family law and criminal defense cases. I speak frankly with my clients about possible outcomes and always involve them in the decision-making process.

I can answer your questions regarding your legal matter during a free consultation. Call 423-954-7949 or toll free at 800-724-5435, or email me to schedule an appointment.
