Attorney Loretta Cravens

Loretta G. Cravens

Attorney at Law

After graduating magna cum laude with a degree in Political Science from Tennessee Tech, I earned my J.D. from the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville. As a criminal defense lawyer from the very beginning of my career, I offer compassionate counsel and top-notch advocacy to individuals and businesses in Tennessee. Ever since opening Cravens Legal, it’s been my goal to empower clients faced with legal difficulties to move forward with confidence. Many think that the justice system is designed to protect them, but nothing could be further from the truth. I strive to give individuals throughout Knoxville the tools to navigate this system, protect their rights, and preserve their future.

More About Me

We’re a Team

I’ll Be Honest with You in Return

During this difficult time, it can be tempting to sugarcoat things. That’s not how I work. I’ll tell you what you need to hear—which may not be what you want to hear—in order to help you move forward.

Tell Me the Truth

When we work together, it’s important for you to be honest with me. As your legal partner in the search for justice, I need to understand your situation so that I can strategize effectively. Tell me your story. I’ll listen.

We’ll Work Together to Protect Your Rights

Trust is key. Whether you’ve been charged with DUI, assault, business fraud, or any other type of crime, we’re in this together. Honesty, authenticity, trust: these are essential.

Don’t talk to the police until you’ve talked to me.

Empathy When You Need it Most

I’ll Put Myself in Your Shoes

I understand how challenging this is for you. So, at every stage of the process,  I’ll treat you with respect. I take on such a wide range of cases because at the end of the day, we’re all human.

My Priority: Understanding Your Perspective

No matter what charges you may be facing, your side of the story is important. At Cravens Legal, understanding your unique situation—and working hard for the justice you need—is my number one priority. Nothing else comes close.

Let’s Get Started

Don’t Let a Criminal Charge Define the Rest of Your Life

When you’re accused of any kind of crime, it can be hard to know where to turn. To make matters worse, the justice system is stacked against you. When you’re starting to feel overwhelmed, remember: there is hope. I’m here to help clear a path for you to seek fair treatment under the law. Your rights—and your future—matter.

Accused of a White-Collar Crime or Healthcare Fraud?

Hundreds of people each year fall victim to business fraud and white-collar crimes in Anderson County, Roane County, and the rest of Tennessee. An accusation can deeply impact your personal and professional life, but it doesn’t have to be this way. You need to assert your rights when accused of money laundering, embezzlement, identity theft, and other crimes.

Charges of healthcare fraud are also serious. If you’ve been accused of billing for services not actually performed, misrepresenting health care procedures, or accepting kickbacks for patient referrals, get in touch with me. I’ll inform you of your rights under the law, and work closely with you and your business to seek the results you need to move forward.

Representation Against Assault, DUI, Juvenile Crimes, and More

If you or someone you love is caught up in the criminal justice system, never forget that you have options.  After an accusation of drunk driving, assault, or juvenile crimes in Knoxville or anywhere else in our state, I can work with you to find a path forward. You don't have to fight these charges on your own. 

Reach out to Cravens Legal in Knoxville for committed and compassionate guidance through this difficult time. I’m proud to serve all of Eastern Tennessee, including (but not limited to) Oak Ridge, Maryville, Sevierville, and the counties of Anderson, Roane, Blount, and Sevier, Tennessee.
