Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Cookeville and Putnam County
Assisting those accused of crimes throughout Cumberland County and White County
Going on a vacation to a city you have always wanted to visit and looking for the best hotel? Looking for a pediatrician in your neighborhood? Need directions to an area school? Chances are that if you are asking any of these questions, you could use a recommendation from a source who has local knowledge. Having someone who knows the lay of the land can be invaluable in making the right decisions.
At The Law Office of Douglas K. Dennis, we know that the same can be said when trying to choose among the criminal lawyers serving the Cookeville and Putnam County, Tennessee areas for your criminal defense needs. The right criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. We take an aggressive approach to representing your interests — and treat every client with honor, respect and integrity.
A never-give-up approach to criminal defense
When you need a Cookeville criminal defense lawyer, it pays to work with a firm that defends clients against a variety of charges at the local, state and federal levels, and that can use its local knowledge and working relationships with area prosecutors and judges for your benefit. While other Tennessee criminal attorneys can provide you with adequate legal representation, Douglas K. Dennis uses his past work at the Knox County District Attorney General’s office to consider how local prosecutors are likely to pursue a case and counters with effective strategies to defend you. One of our core tenets is that we never judge our clients — we know good people make mistakes, and our goal is to help, not cause additional problems.
Getting to the heart of the matter
Some criminal defense lawyers drag out the process of defending their clients so they can bill them or perhaps obtain a level of notoriety for a high-profile case. At The Law Office of Douglas K. Dennis, our philosophy is quite different. Our clients matter most, and we strive to defend them in an aggressive and compassionate manner while bringing closure to cases as soon as possible.
We know how difficult it is for our clients to face the criminal justice system. We handle felonies and misdemeanors in Tennessee state courts and federal district courts. We’ve assisted people who have been charged with drinking and driving, sexual offenses, Internet crimes, and violent crimes, such as assault and murder. If your child is in trouble, our strong reputation and significant experience representing minors in the Tennessee juvenile courts can serve you well.
