Protecting Your Rights When Facing Criminal Charges

While the penalties for a criminal conviction can vary in severity, there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or felony charge, an arrest and conviction can drastically affect your future and reputation.

At The Law Offices of Franz F. Springmann, Sr. and Andrew N. Wilson in Sevierville, Tennessee, our experienced criminal defense attorneys will stand by you every step of the way and will zealously advocate on your behalf in your defense. We can help with charges such as:

  • Theft crimes of all types, including shoplifting and robbery
  • DUI and other traffic violations like reckless driving and driving without a license
  • Drug possession of marijuana, heroin, illegal prescription painkillers and other drugs
  • Probation violations
  • Assault and domestic violence
  • Juvenile criminal charges

Do Not Try To Defend Yourself

As soon as you are arrested, calmly tell the police that you would like to speak with a lawyer before you answer any questions. Do not agree to any searches unless police present a search warrant.

Even if you are facing what seems like a relatively minor misdemeanor, it is not wise to simply plead guilty to try to "put it behind you." While the penalties may not include jail time, you could have to pay expensive fines, complete probation and deal with the effects of a driver's license suspension. Additionally, a conviction will show up on background checks when you are applying for jobs, housing, college, the military or financial aid.

Our attorneys will immediately get to work investigating your arrest and trying to find the best potential outcome for your situation, which could include having the charges reduced or dismissed. We will work hard to protect your rights, record, freedom and future.
