A Former Prosecutor Who Knows How To Defend Against Violent Crime Charges

Physically harming someone or threatening to harm them may result in a criminal charge that carries stiff penalties. These are among the most serious criminal charges you can face — murder, aggravated assault, robbery, kidnapping and more.

If you face charges in connection with a violent crime, you need a lawyer who not only understands how these cases are tried, but who also has extensive courtroom experience handling similar cases. As a former prosecutor with the Nashville District Attorney's Office, I have participated in nearly 100 jury trials, including 30 first-degree murder cases.

Uniquely Qualified To Defend You

A great deal of my 13 years working with the district attorney's office was spent on cases involving homicide, armed robbery and narcotics cases. I was the district attorney's liaison to the gang unit of the Nashville Police Department on two separate occasions.

I understand how these cases are developed and prosecuted. That means I know how to build effective defenses against these charges, in part by spotting weaknesses in the state's case. I recognize when an opportunity to negotiate reduced charges presents itself and when it makes better sense to go to trial.

Building An Effective Defense

The most common violent crimes are:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Aggravated Burglary
  • Weapon Possession (Crooks With Guns)
  • Robbery
  • Vehicular assault or vehicular homicide
  • Murder

Defending against these charges requires deep resources and a thorough understanding of how the case against an accused will be presented. I understand the intricacies of DNA evidence and other aspects of the prosecution's case that can be misleading.
