Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense

Whenever you face criminal charges, from minor DUI misdemeanors to a felony murder charge, your future is always at stake. You deserve a criminal justice attorney who is ready to go on the offense to ensure the best possible defense for you.

Our mission is to put your future first, by obtaining, wherever possible, a clean criminal record and avoiding jail time so you can get back to what matters: living your life.

Do I Need A Criminal Justice Attorney?

The law is vast and complicated and the consequences of a single misstep, misdemeanor, crime, or unjust accusation can be devastating. A criminal charge on your record can follow you throughout your life, and jail time can disrupt work, families, and the very fabric and trajectory of your life.

Do not face the weight of the criminal justice system alone. Even a minor charge can have major consequences, and the more serious the charge, the more urgent it is to have legal representation you can count on.

That is why you need a criminal defense attorney, like Matt Courteau, who is ready to fight for your case.

Why Is It Important To Hire A Local Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney?

Defense attorneys from a big office or the criminal defenders provided by pro-bono lawyers, federal or CJA defense services are often overworked and have to balance dozens if not hundreds of cases from different jurisdictions.

Don’t dilute your chances, when so much is at stake.

Hiring a local expert not only ensures a stronger and more focused defense but also places your fate in the hands of someone who cares.
