Knoxville, Tennessee Criminal Defense Lawyer

Attorney for DUI, Drug Crimes, Sex Crimes, Domestic Violence, and Traffic Violations in Knox County, TN

Criminal matters can be very serious, and if you are arrested and charged with a crime, it can be a challenge to understand the procedures followed by the courts, the specific offenses you are accused of, and your rights throughout the course of your case. To determine your best strategy for defending against criminal charges, it is crucial to work with a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the court system in Knox County and knows the laws of the state of Tennessee.

At The Law Office of William F. Evans, we know how difficult it can be to be accused of a crime, and we are here to help you understand your best options for defense. Attorney William Evans has represented clients in a wide variety of criminal cases in Knoxville and Knox County, and he is prepared to advocate on your behalf when negotiating with prosecutors or pleading your case before a judge or jury. He will work to achieve the best possible results in your case, whether that means pursuing a dismissal of your charges or minimizing the potential consequences you may face.

Knox County DUI Cases

Drunk driving is taken very seriously by law enforcement officials in Tennessee. An arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, drugs, or any intoxicating substances can result in immediate and severe consequences. If you are tested with a blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08%, you will face the revocation of your driver's license, potential jail time, fines, and the requirement to participate in a drug or alcohol treatment program. Even a first-time DUI can be punished harshly with up to one year in jail; hundreds to thousands of dollars in fines, court fees, and other expenses; and a one-year license revocation. These consequences increase for a second DUI or multiple offenses. If you refuse to submit to a BAC test after being arrested, you will be subject to a one-year license revocation under Tennessee's implied consent law, and you may still be convicted of DUI, resulting in further consequences.

To ensure that your rights are protected after being arrested for DUI in Knoxville or Knox County, you need to immediately contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Attorney William Evans can help you understand your options, including determining whether you can defend against the charges by showing that you were arrested after an illegal traffic stop or improperly administered BAC or field sobriety tests. He will work with you to determine the best ways to minimize the charges against you, and he will also help you with the reinstatement of your driver's license, including obtaining a Restricted License that will allow you to drive while using an ignition interlock device (IID).

Other Knox County Criminal Cases

There are a wide variety of situations that may lead to criminal charges against residents of Knoxville and Knox County. While these charges can range in severity from seemingly minor misdemeanors to serious felonies, it is important to have legal representation in any criminal case. A conviction can not only result in a prison sentence and/or large fines, but it will create a permanent criminal record that can affect your ability to work in certain jobs or obtain a professional license, loans, education, or housing.

If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, Attorney William Evans can help you understand the potential consequences you may face and the methods that may be used to demonstrate your innocence or have the charges reduced or dismissed. He will work to protect your rights, ensuring that statements made to police officers or prosecutors do not incriminate you, and he will help gather the evidence needed to help you achieve a positive outcome to your case.
