Nashville, Tennessee Criminal Defense Lawyer
|At the Nashville office of Middle Tennessee Law, an Association of Attorneys, our attorneys include former police officers that can put to work their years of experience in the field, their understanding of police procedures and their ability to closely evaluate evidence in your criminal defense representation. We know that whether you are facing misdemeanor charges or a federal indictment, you are relying on aggressive and experienced representation from your attorney.
The importance of fighting for your rights and legal options is crucial not only now, but in the future. The decisions you make about even minor charges can affect future arrests, convictions and sentences, potentially putting you in a position to face more serious penalties as a result of aggressive prosecution or minimum mandatory sentencing guidelines should you find yourself in trouble again.
Simply put: there is no criminal charge too small to defend yourself against.
Representation Based on Concrete Law Enforcement Experience
Our criminal defense attorneys represent clients in municipal, state and federal courts. We pursue your case from all possible and practical angles including examining constitutional issues to make sure that your rights were observed during the investigation and search as well as pursuing procedural issues to ensure that arresting officers and law enforcement acted legally.
Expungement of Criminal Records
Were you arrested but not convicted? Did you accept a plea bargain or some type of diversion? Your criminal arrest record includes every criminal charge brought against you whether or not you were convicted of each and every one. That means that anyone, including potential employers, performing a criminal background check on you will see everything you were charged with, whether or not you pled guilty or were ultimately found guilty.
The good news is that you may be eligible to have some of those charges expunged and erased from your record. Our lawyers can quickly evaluate your criminal record to determine what can be expunged. If you want to know if you can clean up your criminal arrest record, call for a free initial consultation.

State and Federal Criminal Defense
Did you know that if you are convicted of a crime near a school or a library you may not be eligible for parole? Did you know that if you choose to just pay a fine for a misdemeanor it goes on your record as a conviction and can act as a strike against you later? Do you realize that new laws on the book require a three year mandatory prison sentence for convictions for certain weapons charges?
Our position is that there is no criminal charge that you can afford not to fight. The consequences of not consulting a legal professional can be unexpected, and what you don't know can hurt you later. Take advantage of our free initial consultation to speak with a criminal defense lawyer about your case so that you are fully aware of your rights and options.
