We’ll Handle The Toughest Criminal Cases
We defend people involved in a variety of criminal cases, including sexual offense and drug charges. Often, people experiencing these types of charges don’t know the full scope of their rights, and can end up facing harsher penalties or even false accusations without a knowledgeable legal representative to back them up.
Experience Defending Tennessee’s Tough Drug Laws
Tennessee has particularly strict drug penalties compared with other states, especially involving cannabis. Marijuana possession in Tennessee can range from the same misdemeanor charge as a first-time heroin offense, including a year in prison and a $2,500 fine, to a felony if it’s half an ounce or more. Additionally, statistics from the American Civil Liberties Union show that members of Latino and other communities of color are often targeted disproportionately for the possession and sale of drugs or paraphernalia. As defenders who work predominately with the Latino community, we’ll fight for you if you believe you’re experiencing discrimination or if your drug charge resulted from an unjust law enforcement stop for another reason.
Sex Offense Charges Need Robust Legal Representation
Sex offenses in Tennessee are also strict. Convictions can stick to your record for the rest of your life and make it difficult to find housing, employment and other necessities. These charges are extremely serious, and an experienced defense attorney is important in building a case that works to protect you from unjust or unreasonable accusations and consequences if you find yourself facing charges of a sex offense.
