White-Collar Crime & Business Fraud

When a crime is committed through deceit and motivated by financial gain in the business sector, it’s usually known as a ‘white-collar crime.’ Fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, tax evasion, Ponzi schemes, and pyramid schemes are all in this category. Reach out to me if you’re facing an accusation of business fraud or anything else. You’ll need to act quickly to preserve your business’s reputation and your financial future.

Juvenile Defense in Tennessee

If your child has been charged with criminal activity, or you’re worried they might be, you need to seek the advice of an empathetic attorney. As a juvenile defense lawyer, I can fight against some of the most common juvenile charges, including:

  • Possession or consumption of alcohol

  • Possession, consumption, or intent to distribute drugs

  • Vandalism & graffiti

  • Shoplifting & petty theft

  • Fighting in a public place

  • Indecent exposure / sexual offenses

  • Bullying amounting to assault

  • Trespassing

I understand how criminal charges are intertwined with many areas of a young adult’s life—from school and social media to registering a vehicle at the DMV. You, your child, and your family deserve peace of mind and a brighter future. Get in touch with me so we can begin protecting your rights together.
