A Constructive, Caring Approach to Family Law
Since our law firm was established, we have practiced in family law. We offer compassionate representation tempted with sound judgment to protect our clients' best interests, while helping them overcome any emotional barriers. Our legal team understands that legal issues are rarely my clients' sole concerns. We are dedicated to making sure our clients' needs are met, and in some cases, that means referring them to other professionals, including:
- Child therapists
- Members of the clergy
- Community organizations
We are familiar with the wide range of resources that are available to families and children throughout eastern and central Tennessee. We frequently work as part of a team with these professionals to provide comprehensive service and attention to our clients and their children.
Defending Against Felony and Misdemeanor Charges
A key part of our practice includes defending against felony and misdemeanor charges. Before focusing on criminal defense, Chattanooga attorney Helton was a local prosecutor. He knows firsthand how the prosecution works in developing cases against individuals facing felony and misdemeanor charges. Our law firm will apply our years of experience and legal skills focused on staying ahead of the prosecution. We are committed to developing an aggressive defense strategy against a wide range of charges, such as:
- DUI charges
- Underage drinking
- Drug charges
- Domestic violence
- Violent crimes
Our top priority is to uphold your constitutional rights with an aggressive defense strategy. You can feel confident that we will take every measure possible to protect your freedom.
Always Putting Clients' Interests First
When you hire a lawyer, he or she needs to put your interests first. Unfortunately, some attorneys get so caught up in the excitement of litigation that they lose sight of the impact that criminal charges and high-conflict divorces can have on their clients and their clients' children.
We have had great success as trial lawyers, and nothing pleases us more than going to court and standing up for the rights of a client who might otherwise be taken advantage of. We also recognize that going to trial is not what most of my clients want or need. When you select our law firm, we will put your best interests first when defining an effective legal strategy.
