Violent Crimes

You Need an Attorney to Fight Your Violent Crime Charge

If you’re facing charges for assault, robbery in Middle Tennessee, contact Lords & Cate to discuss your case.

Violent crimes range from simple assault to aggravated burglary to murder, and the punishments can range from probation to a lifetime of imprisonment and sometimes even the death penalty. Because of the seriousness of the potential punishment, it is vital that you hire a criminal defense team that is experienced in defending these cases.

We represent individuals charged with every type of violent crime. Our team of defense attorneys have the experience, skill, knowledge, and passion to provide an effective defense for individuals charged with felony and misdemeanor violent offenses.

How we defend your rights

We have a thorough knowledge of Tennessee law governing violent crimes and methods of defending violent crime charges. When you hire us, you are not simply hiring an attorney, you are getting the assistance of our entire criminal defense team. When you retain our services, we begin an exhaustive investigation into the circumstances surrounding your case. We will break down every element of the charge and investigate each element fully and completely. In this process we look for errors committed by law enforcement, violations of your constitutional rights, and we use these issues to try and suppress the evidence the State has against you.

Every case has the potential to go to trial. Knowing this, our criminal defense team prepares for each case as if it were going to trial. We will, however, use our negotiating skills to try to work out a deal with the State to reach your best possible outcome. Being fully prepared for trial allows us to negotiate from the strongest possible position, meaning we negotiate based on our terms, not the State’s.
