Drug Offense Attorney Lebanon & Mt Juliet TN
We Aggressively Defend Citizens Accused of Drug Crimes
The criminal defense team at Frank Lannom Law Group have fought many battles over drug possession, drug sales, and know how serious drug trafficking charges are. We know the laws specific to Tennessee that can help first offenders and our firm is in a unique position to protect our clients from criminal records.
There are many methods of defending drug charges, ranging from defenses related to developing mitigating factors, whether the drugs were held for resale or personal use, illegally obtained evidence, searches of homes, cars and cellphones, and infringements upon your rights during or after your arrest.
Recent increased action in seizing cell phones and obtaining search warrants to take every piece of information from that cell phone is gaining popularity with police throughout Tennessee. We will provide you updates on discovery and the outlook of your case.
Many changes have occurred recently in the prosecutions of drug crimes within the state of Tennessee. New laws raising penalties for drug crimes which occur within 1000 feet of schools, pre-schools, playgrounds, day care centers and recreation parks have made drug crime penalties particularly harsh. Crimes alleged to have been committed even with the mere presence of a gun carry mandatory sentences and make even less serious crimes non-probatable, requiring almost all sentences to be served in the State Penitentiary. Even with the changes in current law, many opportunities still exist for those with no or limited prior records (even if strong proof of guilt exists) to avoid the lifelong penalty of a criminal record impacting career opportunities.
Frank Lannom and his team of experienced attorneys, paralegals, and investigators respond with aggressiveness that matches that of law enforcement. We act quickly to prevent our clients from being pressured into making hasty, unplanned decisions concerning their case. Just as the prosecution funds a lengthy investigation, we also conduct a thorough investigation, often uncovering police error, prosecutorial mismanagement, and violations of clients’ constitutional rights. We have years of experience handling a variety of drug law violations and difficult narcotics cases, and have the expertise necessary to defend clients accused of drug manufacture, drug distribution and trafficking, and drug possession.
Frank Lannom and Melanie Bean represent clients accused of involvement with a variety of illegal substances, including cocaine/crack, heroin, marijuana, and prescription drugs. Many of our clients are licensed professionals such as nurses, teachers or airline pilots who will lose their livelihood if they are convicted of a drug offense. These significant penalties can often be prevented and/or reduced by retaining equally aggressive lawyers. Our phones are answered 24/7 because we mean it when we say we are here to protect your rights and preserve your freedom. If you need our help, call (615) 444-3995.
