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.
