You still have a real chance to defend your rights and protect your future from the challenges that would come with a conviction.

I am Proud to be a Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney

As a former prosecutor, I know exactly how the case against you is likely to develop. I have used this experience with great success to try more than 200 criminal jury trials. No two cases are the same. The specifics and circumstances of your accusation will be totally unique. As such, you will need an attorney who is able to piece together the right case for those circumstances to achieve the best possible result, be that a not guilty verdict or a more lenient sentence.

Criminal law is complex and establishing a solid, usable line of defense can be challenging. I am proud to defend the rights and liberties of individuals who have been accused of crimes. Let me put my experience to work for you. Call Horst Law at (615) 403-2971 today to learn more about how I may be able to help you defend your freedom.
