Criminal defense LAW

Criminal Defense Attorneys in Memphis, TN

Our criminal attorneys have extensive courtroom experience handling all criminal matters including DUI, Traffic Violations/Speeding Tickets, Driver’s License Issues and Teenage Drivers, Drug Crimes, Probation Revocations, Shoplifting and Theft, and White-Collar Crimes, and all serious criminal cases. 

What Does A Criminal Defense Attorney Do?

Criminal defense attorneys are lawyers who specialize in defending individuals who are faced with criminal charges, sentencing, appeals, and more.  Being faced with something as serious as a crime can be a difficult, draining process.  That’s where the Chiozza team comes in.

Your criminal defense attorney is your ally and confidant throughout the entire journey.  They delve into the details of your case, field pointed inquiries about the process, and examine different angles by which to defend you by.  This may include looking at the evidence, interviewing witnesses, or even talking to police about their role, methods, and other important details that could determine the outcome of your case.  They act as a liaison between you and the accusing party and help you navigate a trial and even the outcome.

Memphis DUI Attorneys

Law enforcement never takes the possibility of someone driving under the influence lightly. If enforcement believes that you may be intoxicated and under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they will pull you over, and you may face a long road ahead following that stop. 

Chiozza Law – Your 901 law firm –  serves as your Memphis DUI attorneys. Our team has represented a vast number of clients facing DUIs in the court of law. We recognize the severity of these charges and the impact DUIs can have on families and friends. Because of this, we work with you to ensure that all situations are handled with care. Call us today at 901-290-6347 for a free consultation.

Memphis Traffic Violation and Speeding Tickets Attorneys

In addition to the unneeded stress, these tickets can also affect your license status. If you do not appear in court on the assigned day, you are subject to a monetary judgment and possible suspension of your license. Additionally, the Tennessee Department of Safety will record points on your driving record, which will be monitored and sometimes lead to a driver’s license suspension or revocation, plus an increase in your insurance premiums.

The Chiozza Law Firm will handle these traffic matters with the same attention to detail we handle all of our other cases. It is our belief that while these citations may not seem like an important matter compared to other daily problems, they can affect your long term driving privileges which in turn leads to more issues in reinstating your driving privileges should a suspension be issued. Call The Chiozza Law Firm at 901-290-6347 for a very reasonable fee quote, and allow us to help alleviate the stress of these traffic citations.

Memphis Suspended License Attorneys

A citation for Driving While License Suspended differs from a normal traffic citation, such as speeding, in that it is a criminal misdemeanor charge that can possibly carry substantial fines and jail time. Driving While License Suspended charges require an individual to go through booking and processing and a subsequent mandatory court date requiring your appearance in General Sessions Criminal Court. 

At The Chiozza Law Firm, we have experienced attorneys who can provide you with legal advice on how to navigate the legal process and minimize the problems a charge of this nature can carry. Call us today at  901-290-6347 for a free consultation.

Memphis Drug Attorneys

In the state of Tennessee, prosecutors actively and aggressively chase down drug-related offenses, which poses a problem for anyone who has endured a minor drug charge. With heavy punishments possible in the future, you need proper representation to weave you through the drug crime process. 

The Chiozza Law Firm holds the expertise and the knowledge to represent you in this case. We have successfully represented many individuals who faced the harsh punishments of a drug-related offense. Call The Chiozza Law Firm at 901-290-6347 for a very reasonable fee quote, and allow us to help alleviate the stress of potential drug charges.

Memphis Theft Attorneys

If you have been charged with a theft related crime an experienced criminal defense attorney can help navigate the murky waters that are our legal system. In Tennessee, the repercussions of a conviction for a theft crime can be serious and long-lasting, depending on the value of the property that was allegedly stolen.

You do not have to face the stresses of a potential criminal conviction alone. It is possible to have the charges against you dismissed or drastically reduced. Call us at 901-290-6347 to schedule a free and confidential case evaluation with a knowledgeable lawyer at The Chiozza Law Firm.

Criminal Defense Law

Being charged with a crime is very scary, and can leave you completely unsure of the future. All criminal charges carry jail time and because most potential employers will perform background checks before extending a job offer, any misdemeanor or felony conviction can affect your ability to get a job. It’s important to enlist the help of experienced criminal attorneys to prevent a life-altering conviction.
