Our reliable team of DUI defense lawyers will develop a strategy to defend you

Our legal team has thorough knowledge of the Tennessee DUI statute, police guidelines and general orders, and police procedures. All of which will assist us in developing a winning strategy for your case. When you hire The Law Offices of Lords and Cate, you are not simply hiring an attorney in a law firm; 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 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 that the State has against you.

We believe your best defense happens before we ever step into the courtroom

Careful preparation is one of the hallmarks of our firm’s DUI defense. Every DUI 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 and work out a deal with the State in order 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.
