Jan 2017 Mr Larry is very genuine. Down-to-earth realist.... I appreciated his expertise and his mind...if you need someone to help you through your crazy situation and help you think and get your mind together then I would suggest Mr Larry. You want someone that is going to help you see some light at the end of the mess you're in then I would hope that you would call Mr Larry... He is ready and prepared to give you the best... I'm forever grateful for his time and patience. He was like my father for the time I had to be there... never missed a phone call or text always staying in contact with me. Mr Larry is just a stand up guy. I even asked him could I use his service for the rest of my life. If needed. Whoever reads this please read all the reviews. Mr Larry is most DEFINITELY THE TRUTH...!!! All respect.

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.

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!

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.

I stand out because I will tell you when you DON'T need a lawyer - If you have been charged with a DUI - you DO need a lawyer, but you really don't have to spend thousands of dollars for excellent representation. Getting cases dismissed and expunging criminal records!

About

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.
