Drug Crime Conviction in Tennessee

If you are convicted on a criminal drug charge in Tennessee, you face serious consequences. You may lose the job you have or you may lose the opportunity to work in certain fields or the opportunity to take certain types of jobs. If you are a student, you could lose eligibility for financial aid for a minimum of one year.

My Drug Crime Defense Practice

I handle the defense of drug crimes, from possession and trafficking, to importation and manufacturing. When I take your case, I will start by examining the arrest. I will determine whether law enforcement authorities violated your constitutional rights:

•I will examine whether there was probable cause to search your home, car or person.

•I will determine whether your Fourth Amendment rights to be free from unreasonable searches or seizures were violated.

•I will verify that you were given appropriate warnings before you made any statements to the police.

If any of these rights were violated, I will seek to have the arrest thrown out or have the evidence suppressed no matter what kind of drugs you were accused of dealing with, including marijuana, crack, cocaine, or methamphetamines.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I also work with clients who have been convicted, but seek to have a conviction permanently removed, or expunged, from their criminal record. If you are eligible for expungement, I will take the steps necessary to have your record changed.
