Chattanooga Criminal Defense Lawyers

From DUI to Violent Crime and Appeals

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you have choices. You can try to fight the charge yourself or hire an attorney. Defending yourself is not advisable. An experienced criminal defense attorney may be your best choice.

We work hard to maintain the good reputation we have built in the legal community. With a former prosecutor as our lead attorney, our firm has a unique advantage at trial.

Aggressively Protecting Your Rights

We represent adults and juveniles charged with crimes such as:

In addition, we provide college student defense for students enrolled in the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Brookstone College, Chattanooga Medical College, Chattanooga State Technical Community College and Tennessee Temple University. This may include charges such as underage drinking/DUI, minor in possession, theft crimes and sex crimes. A conviction can lead to a loss of financial aid and scholarships, disqualification from sports and other activities, and a possible loss of enrollment.

If a legal error affected the verdict or sentence in your trial, we can assist you with federal and state criminal appeals. Attorney Mike Caputo has the appellate experience necessary to argue these cases.

Our lawyers can meet clients in jail, when necessary. We will discuss your case and advise you on whether negotiations or a trial may be better for you.
