Many firms may accept almost any type of legal case if the fee is right.
While representing clients in criminal cases, they may also be prosecuting
divorce actions, personal injury lawsuits, bankruptcy filings, or whatever
type of case or client walks through their doors. This is a common business
practice for many attorneys and large firms around the country, and it's
neither right nor wrong. However, we do things a bit differently. We focus
Since 2006, attorney Douglas K. Dennis has been exclusively practicing
criminal defense in the state of Tennessee. Most of the cases our firm
handles involve felony charges such as
shaken baby syndrome/abusive head trauma, and major
drug charges. That's not to say that we do not defend misdemeanor criminal charges
as well, but most of our clients seek out our services for the more complex
criminal charges that carry the most severe punishment. We believe in
the adage, "Quality, not Quantity," and our business model is
not based on how many clients or cases we can juggle at any one time.
We are not the volume provider of criminal defense in the state of Tennessee.
We purposely take on fewer cases so we can focus on the quality of representation
we provide. Our goal is to provide the very best criminal defense available
anywhere, and at any price. At our office, we rely on real referrals from
real clients. If you or a loved one has been accused of committing a crime
in Tennessee, you are already living a nightmare. We do not add to your
troubles by selling you a padded resume. Our office does not discount
our fees if our clients post positive reviews on legal marketing or local
There is no substitute for a hard-earned reputation. We've grown our practice
through referrals from satisfied clients, not through the solicitation
of unearned reviews or ratings. We earn our client referrals by putting
in the time, hard work, and attention to detail required to successfully
and creatively defend them against the overwhelming manpower and financial
resources at the government's disposal, which it intends to use to secure
a conviction at all costs. Our firm has a reputation for "thinking
outside the box,” and that type of unconventional approach to our
cases has led to numerous dismissals of serious criminal charges when
combined with strong and effective motion practice.
The Law Office of Douglas K. Dennis is here to help lessen the fear, pain,
and embarrassment of being publicly accused of committing a crime. Our
skill and experience can help mitigate the consequences of a criminal
charge. This is what we do, and we take pride in how well we do it.
