Knoxville DUI Defense Attorney

Scott County DUI Defense Lawyers

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Knox County Defends Clients Charged With Drunk Driving and Drugged Driving

In recent years, the state of Tennessee has taken serious steps toward cracking down on drunk driving. The state's laws, in fact, are among the strictest in the country. Law enforcement officers in Tennessee stop thousands of drivers annually on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), many of whom are ultimately convicted. If you or a member of your family has been arrested for DUI, your life is about to change dramatically. At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we understand the challenges that you are facing, and we are equipped to help you navigate the Tennessee justice system.

Drunk Driving Charges in East Tennessee

There is no such thing as a minor DUI charge in Tennessee. The penalties for a conviction are harsh and include mandatory jail time, fines, and the revocation of your license—even for a first offense. In addition, a conviction will remain on your criminal record forever, which means it will follow you for the rest of your life. As a result, you may have a difficult time obtaining meaningful employment, finding an affordable place to live, or qualifying for educational programs.

With so much at stake, it is important to enlist the help of an attorney who understands the law and who knows how to protect your rights. At The Law Office of William F. Evans, our skilled DUI defense lawyer William F. Evans is fully up to date on all of the applicable statutes and case law precedents. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, you may feel overwhelmed and hopeless, but we can provide the responsible, aggressive representation you need throughout the process.

Our team is ready to help you with all types of DUI cases, including:

Attorney William Evans is also available to answer whatever questions you may have about facing DUI charges in Tennessee.

Building Your Case in Anderson County

Most DUI arrests start with a traffic stop. Even before pulling you over, police officers must follow strict guidelines so that your constitutionally-protected rights are not compromised. The officer, for example, must have probable cause to believe that you were drunk or that you committed a traffic violation to even initiate the stop. Our experienced team will review the events surrounding the stop and your arrest, looking for any details that could be used in building your defense. We are also prepared to challenge the results of a breathalyzer or other forms of blood alcohol content (BAC) testing when appropriate.
