Personal injury

Auto accidents

According to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, 173,309 drivers have been injured in the state since 2003. If you or your loved one sustains injury in any type of auto accident, consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. If another driver has rear-ended, sideswiped or T-boned your vehicle, you may be able to obtain just compensation. Our attorneys can launch an investigation to gather evidence and uncover who is liable for your injuries. We frequently assist clients with the following types of auto accident cases:

Criminal defense

Even minimal interaction with a law officer can be intimidating. But if you are arrested, you may be scared and unsure of where to turn. It is of the utmost importance that you retain experienced counsel immediately after your arrest. You have certain inalienable rights, and without an attorney by your side, these rights may be ignored or violated. We can move swiftly to protect your rights and to begin formulating a decisive strategy for your case. Our criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience representing clients arrested for the following crimes:

Social Security
