Criminal Defense Law

A criminal conviction will profoundly affect your life. The conviction will follow you no matter where you go, no matter what you did. It can affect job opportunities and financial opportunities, not to mention what it could do to your family life.

But there is hope. Whether the charge you face is a felony or a misdemeanor, a lawyer from Harrell & Associates will work with you to pursue the best outcome possible. The Memphis, Tennessee law firm of The Harrell Firm has more than 11 years of experience successfully defending clients against a wide variety of criminal charges. We have defended clients against charges of:

The Firm Challenges the Government's Case
The firm begins by investigating the case for ourselves. Our attorneys gather and examine the facts to find weaknesses in the government's case against you. For instance, in a DUI case, our attorneys may look for facts that will allow a challenge to the validity of your Breathalyzer test. Or perhaps the firm's attorneys may find "search and seizure" problems they can use to challenge the way police may have gathered evidence against you.

In all of this, the job of a Memphis criminal law attorney is to show the court that the government cannot make its case against you beyond all reasonable doubt. If the government cannot prove its case beyond all reasonable doubt, then you will not be convicted of the crime. When the firm can successfully challenge the government's case, the firm may be able to get the charges against you dismissed before any trial occurs. If a trial does occur, the firm's lawyers may be able to win an acquittal for you, meaning you are found not guilty.

Even if the government has particularly strong facts to support its case, Harrell & Associates may be able to enter into a plea agreement with the government. This plea agreement may result in reduced or even dismissed charges against you.
