We Defend You Against Drunk Driving Charges

Any law firm with a criminal defense capacity will help individuals facing drunk driving charges. Criminal defense abilities among firms, however, vary widely. Before entrusting your criminal record and driving privileges to any attorney, first ask yourself:

  • Does the attorney conduct thorough investigations?
  • Has the attorney handled hundreds of DUI/DWI cases?
  • Is the attorney a member of the Tennessee and national Associations of Criminal Defense Lawyers?
