                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. I have handled cases in federal and state courts all over this country and I have also handled criminal matters for a few foreign nationals abroad. 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. That respect always benefits my clients in resolving their cases.


         I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees studying at first rate universities.I have acquired knowledge from handling hundreds of felony cases in my 42 years of practice. I continue to enhance my legal education via the opportunities offered to me as a member of the prestigious CJA panel in the Middle District of 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. If you have had property seized by any government agency including local, state and federal authorities I can help you defend against the forfeiture.


         My success is governed by utilizing all of my experience and knowledge to assist my clients in resolving their legal problems in an effective manner. That includes winning at trial, negotiating the best plea agreements, convincing the government authorities not to prosecute, and making well prepared presentations at sentencing hearings that result in significantly reduced sentences. Please review my "Case Results Page" to see my most recent successful efforts on behalf of my clients. 

         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).
