Consequences Of Conviction

Different crimes have different penalties. However, depending on the specific circumstances of your case, you may face fines or time in jail/prision or more if you are convicted. The fines could be anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to several thousand dollars; the time you are faced with spending behind bars could be anywhere from a few days to many years. 

You could lose your license or your ability to possess/carry a firearm (temporarily or for many years or for good). You could be forced to perform community service, public speaking, or attend victim impact sessions. You will likely lose your job and have difficulty finding future employment. You may also be evicted from your apartment. Your insurance could go up. Your permanent record will be damaged. 

Why Having A Skilled Nashville Criminal Defense Lawyer Matters

When the charges against you are so serious, the level of representation you have on your side could make a difference between this event defining your life or being a mere bad experience – the lawyer you choose will affect how the rest of your life unfolds! Hiring the right Nashville criminal defense lawyer will ensure that you know exactly what your rights and options are and that you are not confused by any legal lingo. An attorney will take the time to listen to your story, answer all of your questions, and carefully review both the circumstances of your arrest and all of the evidence against you, in case there are any things that would invalidate the charges or there are any weaknesses with the case for conviction. They can then create a strong defense!

Chris really helped us to understand how the estate planning process works. We feel very confident that we and our kids are taken care of and that everything that is supposed to happen with our assets will happen. Chris took all of the stress out of the process.
