Summary

I am Joseph Warren Fuson. I am a Husband, Father, Outdoorsman and Lawyer. I have two beautiful daughters and two dogs. I spent a large majority of my time representing people who have been charged with a crime, people who have been injured, consumers who been defrauded, landlord and tenants, and good people that need a good trial lawyer to represent them in their divorce. My law partner Mark Freeman and I have owned and operated Freeman & Fuson for over 10 years. Mark is a civil trial specialist and heads up the civil litigation and appellate division of our law firm.

I have represented people in criminal cases, divorce cases and personal injury cases across the State of Tennessee. However, most of my time is spend representing individuals and small businesses in Middle Tennessee - mainly Davidson, Williamson, and Rutherford Counties.

I remain committed to defending people charged with alcohol, drug and cannabis related offenses. I have extensive training in DUI and alcohol related offenses. I am also one of the few dedicated cannabis attorneys in the State of Tennessee and spend a large portion of my time in criminal court defending people charged with possessing, selling, transporting, or cultivation marijuana.

My associate or I handle most misdemeanor cases myself with only the assistance of my paralegal. When I am hired on more serious criminal cases or litigation matters, I employ a team approach. My team consists of my paralegal, associate attorney, private investigative team, accident/crime scene reconstructionist, toxicologist, and/or financial experts in white collar cases. As a trial lawyer, I rely on these team members to provide the best representation for my clients.

Finally, I will spend time talking with you and determining whether I can help you with your case before demanding any payment for my services. I provide free consultations over the phone or virtual meetings.
