With You Every Step Of The Way

As your attorney, I am with you for the long haul. At the beginning of your case, I work to get you released on bond so that you can keep living your life as you await your court date. I am also here for you long after your trial, if you are accused of probation violations. I am even a phone call away years down the road, if you want to ask the court to seal your criminal record.

Let me, Nashville attorney Tommy Overton, provide you with the guidance you need at every step of the way.

How To Get A Loved One Released On Bond

Posting bond allows your loved one to be released from jail as he or she awaits trial. Bond is not offered in every case and in some cases it is set too high. I work with judges in an effort to reduce bonds or to get bonds set when they have not been offered.

In addition to helping people seek bond, I also represent people at source hearings, which are needed in certain cases to verify that the bond money did not come from illegal sources.

If you need help getting a loved one released on bond, or need help proving that bond money is legitimate, contact me for a free consultation at my Nashville, Tennessee, law office.

What Happens When Probation Is Violated?

Probation is provided as a second chance to many individuals who would otherwise be sent to prison or jail. It is also used in some cases after someone is released from jail. However, being accused of violating probation can result in that second chance being taken away or being sent back to jail.

Probation violation itself is a crime. It can lead to another court hearing and serious potential consequences, including incarceration, fines, community service or the original sentence taking effect. Assistance from an experienced criminal defense lawyer is just as important in these cases as it was in the original case.
