Tennessee DUI Defense Attorney

Protecting the rights of the criminally accused since 1996

Prosecutors in Tennessee take drunk driving seriously. If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), do not take the charges lightly. Penalties for drunk driving may include jail time, probation, driver's license suspension, court ordered alcohol treatment and litter removal.

If you are facing drunk driving charges in Tennessee, contact the Law Office of David L. Scott in Murfreesboro, Tennessee at 615-896-7656 to learn how we can help you protect your record, license and freedom.

Our law office provides a vigorous defense against all alcohol-related offenses, including:

  • Underage drinking
  • Public intoxication

Do Not Plead Guilty Before You Talk with a Lawyer

If this is your first DUI, you may have friends or family members who are advising you to plead guilty and move forward with your life. Before you make a mistake that could adversely affect your rights and your future, consult our experienced criminal defense attorney.

Our attorney can advise you of your rights, help you understand the possible penalties you face and help you make an informed decision about how to respond to the DUI. Our attorney can negotiate with the prosecution in an effort to seek a more favorable resolution to your case and may be able to help you obtain a restricted driver's license if you face a driver's license suspension. Additionally, our attorney can make sure your rights are protected; if the police have violated your rights it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charges against you.

DUI Defenses Do Exist

Many people assume that they have no defense because their breath test indicated a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. This is not necessarily the case. Our criminal defense attorney, David L. Scott, can raise a vigorous defense on your behalf.

If hired to handle your case, Attorney Scott will ask key questions critical to providing a vigorous defense, including:

  • Did the police officer have a right to stop your car?
  • Did the police officer properly perform the field sobriety test?
  • Did the police officer have probable cause to make an arrest?
  • Did the police officer have cause to ask for a blood or breath test?
  • Were any of your constitutional rights violated?

In addition to asking key questions, we take time to investigate the facts of your case. For example, most police cars now have dash cameras. We can demand, through discovery, a copy of the dash cam tape to determine if the officer performed the field sobriety test properly and to determine if you performed the test well or poorly. In some cases, people who are arrested actually performed well on the road test and never should have been arrested.
