Criminal Defense Experience You Can Rely On

When you are arrested and charged with a crime, it is crucial to remain calm and focus on making smart, responsible decisions. One of the best decisions that you can make is to call an experienced criminal defense lawyer, who can represent you in and out of court in East Tennessee and will defend your constitutional rights.

The Stapleton Law Office has defended clients in a wide variety of criminal defense matters in Tennessee, from many misdemeanor cases to virtually all felony cases, including those involving murder charges. We will try to settle or negotiate the penalties in your case if it is in your best interests, but we are not afraid to bring your case to trial. We are experienced litigators who understand the law and what it takes to get you the resolution you deserve.

What To Do If You Are Arrested

Being arrested for a crime can be a nerve-wracking, stressful situation that can leave you frustrated, scared and angry. It can be easy to overreact and make decisions that you may regret later on. If you find yourself being charged with a crime in Tennessee, you should cooperate with law enforcement. You should not, however, answer any questions that they ask without an attorney present who will protect your constitutional rights.

When you are arrested, you should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Your lawyer will work with law enforcement to get the answers you need and will advise you on your rights, your options and what your next steps should be.
