A Bold Advocate Who Has Your Back

If you face criminal charges — whether for drunk driving, simple drug possession, a domestic assault, or a felony drug or gun charge — the consequences can be severe and impact you long term. A criminal record can seriously limit your career opportunities and tear apart your family life. At Rob McGuire Law in Nashville, I am committed to minimizing the impact that criminal charges have on my clients' lives.

As a former prosecutor in the Office of the District Attorney in Nashville, where I worked for 13 years, I gained extensive trial experience and valuable insights on how the criminal justice system operates. I use that knowledge to my clients' advantage by anticipating the prosecution's moves and developing legal strategies to counter them.

In Criminal Matters, Experience Counts

I have participated in more than 90 jury trials, including 30 first-degree murder cases. I am one of only 24 attorneys statewide certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA) as a criminal trial specialist. NBTA certification is awarded only to those attorneys who pass an exhaustive screening process, including judicial and peer references.

Of course, many criminal matters are resolved without going to trial. The criminal defense lawyer you choose to represent you has a significant impact on how negotiations proceed and what sort of settlement is reached. Here again, my prosecutorial experience provides me valuable insights into the factors that are weighed when reaching agreement in a criminal matter. I have a thorough understanding of alternative sentencing options such as probation, deferred adjudication and suspended sentencing.
