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?

Potential Penalties For A DUI/DWI Conviction In Tennessee

A DUI/DWI conviction brings a minimum first-offense penalty of 24 hours in jail and 24 hours of community service. A second offense brings a minimum 45 days in jail, and a third offense is a felony and brings a minimum 120 days in jail.

Our criminal defense team works closely with our firm investigator — a former police officer whose police experience includes time with the criminal investigation division.

We will fully investigate the circumstances of your drunk driving charges, including obtaining police reports, police in-car videotapes, analyzing blood and breath alcohol tests and assessing whether search and seizure laws were violated.
