Criminal Defense Attorney | Franklin Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being arrested is one of the most frightening events in a person’s life. Having a criminal defense attorney that knows the law and the system can make a big difference in the process and the outcome. At Story, Abernathy, Campbell, Ashworth, Yarbrough, and Hudson, An Association of Attorneys, we provide clients with a sound defense against a wide range of state and federal criminal charges.

Most criminal cases are handled in the local county court where the alleged offense occurred.  It is important to know where your case will be prosecuted before you begin your search for a lawyer. All of our criminal defense attorneys are licensed to practice in state courts, including every local county court in Tennessee.

Examples of Our Cases

Although we handle almost any criminal case, the majority of our criminal defense cases fall into these categories:

  • Drug charges
  • DUI charges
  • Assault and theft charges

If you were arrested and charged, or are being investigated for, one of these crimes, it is important to contact a seasoned criminal defense attorney right away. The sooner you begin to develop a defense strategy, the stronger your case will be.

We defend clients vigorously, seeking the best possible outcome for each case. That outcome may be probation, dismissal of charges, alternative sentencing or acquittal at trial. Whatever the result, clients know that our criminal defense attorney took their cases seriously and developed the best strategy for the circumstances.

Our criminal defense attorneys include Steve Gardner (a former corrections officer), Casey Ashworth (a former judicial commissioner and youth services officer), Nathan Luna (a former judicial commissioner and criminal prosecutor), and Sean Park (a prominent DUI defense attorney that has handled hundreds of cases in his former home of Atlanta, Georgia).
