Exploring Your Defense Options

I defend individuals in Davidson County, Tennessee, who have been accused of all types of rape.

  • Date rape — When the alleged victim and the accused are in a dating relationship or have simply gone out on one or more dates
  • Child rape — When the alleged victim is under the age of 13
  • Statutory rape — When the alleged victim is between the ages of 13 and 15, or if the alleged victim is between the ages of 15 and 18 and the accused is five years older or more; statutory rape charges may arise even if the sexual contact was consensual

Once I hear your side of the story, I can immediately begin crafting a strong defense case on your behalf. The charges you are facing are very serious, but that does not mean that you do not have legal options. I will help you explore all of them and help you seek the most favorable outcome possible.
