Criminal DEFENSE

If you are facing criminal charges, then your future may seem uncertain. It is important to hire a criminal defense attorney that will advocate for you throughout the criminal justice process. The key advantages of hiring a criminal defense attorney to defend misdemeanor or felony charges are: 

  • They understand the statutes that govern the charges against you
  • They are experienced at plea negotiations which typically include reducing charges or alternatives such as diversion, if applicable
  • They know how to work with investigators to gather evidence for your defense
  • They know how to cross-examine witnesses
  • They are familiar with the rules of evidence and can work to include or exclude evidence 
  • They are your voice throughout the process 

We recommend hiring a criminal defense attorney before your first court appearance. Criminal charges can affect your future employment opportunities which directly impact your earning potential. 

John served as Special Assistant Public Defender for approximately two years handling numerous criminal matters. Additionally, he has presided as a special judge for Wilson County General Sessions and Juvenile Courts as well as presided over the Wilson County Teen Court. He has handled numerous criminal cases and is well-versed in plea negotiations.
