Hiring A Knowledgeable Defense Lawyer Who Can Protect Your Rights Is Vital

If you are facing criminal charges, you may be unfamiliar with the law or your constitutional rights. Sadly, both police and prosecutors know this and will count on your inexperience.

For any criminal charge, having a lawyer who knows how to protect your rights is always an advantage — even if the offense seems minor.

Individuals Facing Charges Relating To Opioids

The opioid epidemic has raised a new zeal among Tennessee law enforcement agencies. Possession of even a small amount of an opioid or a controlled substance, like heroin laced with fentanyl, can carry severe penalties.

Additionally, drug charges often involve civil forfeiture. Authorities will not hesitate to seize any asset they feel is connected to a crime involving drugs — even if the property belongs to a friend or family member.

Penalties For A Criminal Conviction Are Wide-Ranging. Hiring A Trusted Advocate Is Important.

Criminal convictions, whether misdemeanors or felonies, often bring long-lasting consequences. Convictions almost always carry penalties that disrupt your life in some way. Many include:

  • Jail time
  • Steep fines
  • Public viewing of your criminal record to anyone conducting a background check, such as an employer or landlord
  • Regular meetings with a probation officer
  • Community service

Let us use our knowledge to help minimize — or even eliminate — these possible consequences.
