  1. #1 Law Office of David von Wiegandt

    (11 reviews)

    Shayla L.

    I went into my legal battle with very little optimism and left quite satisfied with the outcome. I spoke with a few other attorneys and they provided little confidence and somewhat unreasonable costs for their representation. He provided excellent and prompt communication as well as helped me to understand my different options and rid me of much anxiety during this stressful event. As David von Wiegandt, was my first ever attorney in this unfortunate event, I would definitely recommend his assistance to others in need. Service was very much appreciated.

  2. #2 The Stanton Law Firm

    (19 reviews)

    Tara W.

    Parrish Stanton has the ability to persuade even the toughest of District Attorneys and Judges. His extensive knowledge/experience in social and psychological manipulation sets him apart from any other lawyer. He unlike other lawyers, sets a solid and personable relationship with his clients; making himself available to me any time and day when I needed emotional support and understanding of court proceedings. This lawyer, now my friend and confidant brought a possible 52 year sentence to a 6 year probationary period. His court room tactics are professional, yet he has the ability to play on a prosecutors heart strings; a practically impossible task that Parrish Stanton has figured out to its core. If you want a lawyer that you can depend on, someone who will guide you, someone who will be there through every step of the grueling justice system... this man of many faces; Marine Corp officer, father, husband, best friend, and lawyer will save your life, he saved mine.

    Dustin A.

    Can't thank James Marshall enough! I called him less than 24hrs before my court date hat in hand not giving him much to work with at all and he still took me on and I couldn't be more grateful and indebted to him. I feel like I got best deal possible all things considered. Definitely recommend his services!

  8. #8 The Collins Law Firm, PLLC

    (5 reviews)

    Yun W.

    Very knowledgeable. After discussing the case, he thought it needed more evaluation from doctors and advised us the steps forward. Due to the insurance issue, the cost of hiring an attorney was not feasible, but Mr. Collins still talked on the phone with us to find a suitable solution. We appreciate his guidance very much.

  • Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer

    Law Offices of Lawrence Arnkoff

    (18 reviews)

    I found Mr. Arnkoff on Thumbtack because I was looking for a criminal defense lawyer to give me a FREE consoltation and second opinion on what another lawyer had advised me. I did not even think for a minute that I would end up with an actual private lawyer (especially someone good) . I thought I would just get a FREE consolt and that I would have to tough it out with the federal public defender because I did not have the money to hire a private lawyer. I placed my inquiry on thumbtack late at night around 11:00pm. The next morning, when I woke up for work at 6:00 am I already had a response from Mr. Arnkoff asking for more information on my situation. I was really surprised that a lawyer responded to me in less than 8 hours. So I replied to him and got up and got ready for work. By the time I arrived at work at 7:30am Mr. Arnkoff had replied to my reply and we decided to set up a phone consolt because I worked late that day. He said he was going to call me at 12:30pm during my lunch break and he did, he called right at the time he said he would call. He spent almost an entire hour with me on the phone and he let me talk and explain everything. He asked me lots of questions and answered tons of questions I had. He explained everything to me in great detail and made sure I understood what he was saying. He offered to go and meet with my loved one in jail and explain everything to him so that he would have peace of mind while being incarcerated. He went the very next morning and met my loved one and explained everything to him and answered his questions. I was surprised that he went to go see my loved one in jail BEFORE getting paid to do it. As I said earlier I did not think I would end up having a private attorney because I did not think I could afford one but I ended up hiring Mr. Arnkoff because he was willing to work with me in my situation. Mr. Arnkoff calls me on a regular basis and gives me detailed information and keeps me in the loop with my loved ones case. He is a very easy going man, he is very easy to talk to and very professional. He is very very knowledgeable and knows pretty much everyone in federal court and knows a lot of investigators and public defenders. He has a great network and he always always always calls me back. He is very reasonable and kind and down to earth. My loved ones case is not over and we still have a long way to go but it is such a big weight off my shoulders to have Mr. Arnkoff handling everything for me and being my loved ones voice and keeping me informed on what is going on and what things I can expect. He is a very straight forward person and does not tell you things to get your hopes up and then disappoint you. He seems to go out of his way to utilize his own resources and network of people that he knows to get things moving along. I highly recommend Mr. Arnkoff. He listens, answers questions and stays in contact with you. I have never once had to speak to an associate or anything. It is always him who calls me back.

  • Divorce & Criminal Law

    Michael K. Walker, Esq.

    (12 reviews)

    I was very embarrassed about needing to hire a lawyer for my case. I am not a criminal by any means and was being treated like one by the person(s) charging me. Mr. Walker talked to me in a professional, respectful manner and made me feel less like a criminal and more like a person. I would hire him again and again if I needed to, he was always on time for every meeting and answered every phone call and email. He was from a different county than where I was being charged and had no trouble showing up to court and being by my side. I highly recommend this man to be your lawyer if for any unfortunate reason you find yourself in a compromising situation.

    Russell F. Thomas, Attorney

    (5 reviews)

    When you (or a family member) find yourself facing criminal charges, it can be a frightening time. Perhaps you were arrested for drunk driving, were charged with possession of drugs, or are being accused of a crime by your employer. Perhaps you were arrested for a violent crime, sex-related charge, weapons, assault or domestic violence. It really doesn't matter what charge you're facing because right now, you're staring at possible jail time and a criminal record. I'd like to help. My name is Russell Thomas, and I am a criminal and DUI defense attorney in Nashville. As a former prosecutor, and now a criminal defense attorney, I have accumulated skills that very few other defense lawyers in the Nashville area can claim. What that criminal trial experience means to you is this: powerful representation for your criminal defense matter. I understand how the state will proceed against you on the charges, how the police work was conducted, and what the strengths and weaknesses of your case will be. When you put me to work, I will make an assessment of the evidence against you and begin building a defense strategy. We will meet to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case and plan on how to overcome the prosecutor's strengths and exploit their weaknesses. We do this to accomplish one of three things: gain a dismissal, a reduction of charges, or an acquittal at trial. I want what you want: the best possible outcome. When you're faced with the stress of having criminal charges filed against you, you don't want to settle for anything less than the most competent and committed representation. That's what you'll get from this criminal lawyer.
