Strong Defense In Tennessee Against DUI Charges
While it’s always important to have a strong defense prepared against drunk-driving charges, it is particularly important in Tennessee. Many states have pretrial diversionary programs and other alternatives that could help you avoid conviction and permanent records, but Tennessee is one of the few states yet to move in that direction. If you have been charged with a DUI, there is no way to avoid having to fight against these charges aggressively.
We Have The Other Team’s Playbook
If you have to go into battle against an opponent, it would certainly help if you knew what the other side was thinking and planning. At JMG, PLLC, our lawyers all have experience as prosecuting attorneys in various Tennessee counties. This experience gives us a unique edge as we defend our Cookeville and surrounding area clients against drunk-driving charges.
Most criminal defense attorneys boast that they ONLY handle criminal defense. But at JMG, PLLC, we have all worked for the other side, and we consider this a tremendous advantage. We know how prosecuting attorneys will approach these cases because we used to be prosecuting attorneys. By knowing their strategy, we can better defend against it.
Keeping Your Record Clean
Typically, defense attorneys will look only at the arrest details and the blood-alcohol tests and Breathalyzer, trying to find errors. While this is an important step and one that we always take as a matter of course, the problem is that many attorneys stop here. And while it is great when a case can get thrown out at this stage, it is rare.
We know there is a lot more to fighting a DUI conviction than the pretrial loopholes. We are experienced criminal law trial attorneys with a remarkable track record of success at trial. If your legal team cannot get your case thrown out pretrial, they will have to win the trial. Our lawyers have a distinct advantage in this regard.
