Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

There are several things I want potential criminal clients to know about me. I have more than 40 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer in Tennessee and Florida. I represent clients who are being prosecuted or investigated for federal or state crimes. The majority of my practice is spent defending federal white-collar crimes, money laundering and drug trafficking. My considerable experience has allowed me to earn the respect of the Federal Judiciary, the U. S. Attorney's Office, the U.S. Marshal's Office, and all of the Federal law enforcement agencies (DEA, FBI, ATF, IRS, Homeland Security, etc.) in Middle Tennessee. If you are a foreign national I want you to know I am extremely knowledgeable in immigration law and I have represented and currently represent a significant number of foreign clients. I am experienced in post-conviction matters including appeals, habeas writs, and the appeal of prisoner's rights issues. I recently prevailed on behalf of a client against the Federal Bureau of Prisons after extensive litigation regarding a denial of a substantial amount (years) of jail credit. If you have had property seized by any government agency including local, state and federal authorities I can help you defend against the forfeiture. Although criminal defense work is my specialty I have significant contacts within the Nashville Entertainment Community particularly the music industry, that allows me to assist established and aspiring artists, songwriters and producers. I also handle a select number of personal injury clients and corporate clients. I take pride in resolving cases in a professional and cost effective manner. Let my experience and knowledge help you achieve the success you need. Call me today to set up a free consultation at (615) 933-5182(o) or (615) 973-4570(c).
