Full-Service Law Firm Serving Brentwood and Franklin, Tennessee
Although family law is our main area of practice, clients often return to us when they have legal needs in other areas of the law. We are happy to apply our skills and expertise as experienced negotiators, mediators and litigators to resolve disputes and provide assistance in any of the following areas:
Criminal Defense and DUI
If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence, domestic violence, sex crimes, drug offenses or other Tennessee misdemeanor or felony offenses, we’ll work to resolve your matter in a way that achieves the best outcome. Our team is prepared to attack the charges or negotiate a plea for an excellent outcome like diversion or probation. We’ll also defend you in court when it’s in your best interests to fight the charges and seek a Not Guilty verdict or acquittal from the court. We’ll protect your rights and make sure you are treated fairly by the police and prosecution from arrest all the way through trial.
If you’ve been hurt because of the negligence of another person or business, we can help you prove your case and get the appropriate amount of compensation from the insurance company for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other legal damages that flow from the accident. If we can’t negotiate a fair settlement because the defendant and their insurer say they aren’t to blame for your injuries, that your own negligence caused the accident, or that your injuries aren’t serious, we’ll take them to court and let a jury decide who’s right. Our comprehensive personal injury practice includes car wrecks, dog bites, slip and fall cases, defective products, and wrongful death. If we can’t get a recovery for you, we won’t charge you any fee.
