Nashville Criminal Lawyer
Everything you have worked hard to achieve may suddenly be called into question if you are facing criminal charges in Tennessee. The arresting officer’s claims may have led you to think a conviction is inevitable. However, in the criminal justice system, nothing is inevitable. On face value the evidence against you may seem convincing, but the right lawyer will dig into the prosecution’s case questioning the validity of the charges. Contact our Nashville criminal lawyers for more information.

At Calhoun Law, PLC in Nashville, Tennessee, we have years of experience doing this. We have a strong background defending clients when the odds seem stacked against them.

Mounting An Aggressive Defense Against DUI Charges in Nashville
If you are accused of drunk driving in Tennessee, do not underestimate the value of working with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. The implications of a conviction are far too serious to try handling the charges on your own. A DUI conviction could lead to jail time, substantial fines, suspended license and a hike to your auto insurance. Employers often refuse to hire anyone with a criminal record, and lenders may deny you a low interest rate.
At Calhoun Law, PLC, we know what you are up against. We will put the prosecution on the defensive, while forcing them to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. We will not hesitate to question the charges if law enforcement did not have a valid reason to pull you over for suspicion of drunk driving in the first place. Our legal team also has access to Breathalyzer experts. If the arresting officer wasn’t trained to use the Breathalyzer correctly or a mechanical mishap led to a calibration error, we will fight for the Breathalyzer evidence to be thrown out. Without enough evidence, the prosecution may not be able to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Defending Against All Types of Drug Charges
Federal and state prosecutors devote substantial resources trying to deter drug crimes. Prosecutors often seek the harshest penalties possible. In some cases, prosecutors may slap on additional charges that do not fit the crime allegedly committed. If you are accused of committing a drug offense, select an experienced lawyer highly familiar with how the criminal justice system works. At Calhoun Law, PLC, we have years of experience defending against felony and misdemeanor drug crimes, including:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug sales and trafficking
- Manufacturing and cultivation of illegal drugs
We are committed to making sure law enforcement does not violate your constitutional rights in pursuit of a conviction. Law enforcement is prohibited from pulling you over and searching your vehicle without a valid reason. Similarly, police officers cannot search your home without a valid reason. If law enforcement failed to secure a search warrant or violated the terms of the warrant, we will fight for any evidence obtained illegally to be suppressed. We will dig into every angle possible when questioning the evidence obtained against you. Our Nashville criminal defense lawyers are committed to protecting your rights at all costs.
