Understanding your Miranda rights when under arrest

There are basic rights and protections in place that do a lot for those facing criminal charges. They have the right to a criminal defense, the right to a speedy trial and the right to a jury comprised of their peers. There are also rights enshrined in the Constitution, such as the freedom from unreasonable searches, that can protect people and also help them defend against criminal allegations.

Understand the risk of the death penalty in Tennessee

Being accused of first-degree murder is serious and can put your life and freedoms at risk. Even though you've not yet been convicted, the likelihood is that you will be treated differently by your peers, colleagues and others. If you're taken into custody, you may lose your job or be unable to support yourself.

When someone is pulled over for drunk driving, they may be immediately overwhelmed with high levels of stress. Unfortunately, this stress may persist long after they are stopped by a law enforcement official, and it may continue to impact their lives in various ways in the weeks and months ahead. If you are facing DUI charges, it is important to address high levels of stress you may be dealing with, which can have negative effects on your job and in your personal relationships. We understand why these charges can be so stressful and the myriad of hardships that those in this position may be going through.

There was a fight at the bar, and someone got hurt bad. Maybe died. An eyewitness placed you at the scene.
