Knoxville DUI Defense
When you get arrested for DUI, professional representation is critical. A first-time DUI conviction in Tennessee stays on your record for ten years and can result in up to seven days in jail. A person convicted of a DUI can also have their license revoked and be forced to pay fees of up to $1,500.
Before your case ever goes to trial, it’s sometimes a good idea to review your driving history, take an alcohol assessment, and consider attending DUI classes or even going to rehab. These voluntary measures can be presented favorably to a judge.
You will be offered a public defender, but keep in mind that public defenders are often overworked and underpaid. You will have to let the attorney the court appoints to you represent you and you will not know anything about their background or how they will go about preparing your case.
When you hire our firm to represent you in a DUI case, we will review your entire driving history,
examine the facts in the case, research similar cases and prepare the best defense.

He will fight hard to get you the lightest sentence possible, by using your driving history as well as all the mitigating circumstances that surrounded your arrest.
Insurance policies are full of loopholes and every insurance company is armed with a team of attorneys. 95 percent of personal injury cases are settled out of court in the United States. In some cases a personal injury lawsuit can take years to get settled. Tennessee is a conservative state and in 2011 the legislature passed tort reform, which limits the kinds of rewards one can receive when injured. The law especially impacts the amount of money one can receive for non- monetary damages such as permanent disfigurement and emotional suffering.
When looking for a Knoxville personal injury lawyer, it is important to find a counselor like Mr. Collver, who is well-versed in Tennessee laws, including the state’s statute of limitations and tort limits.
Mr. Collver understands the history of tort reform and the language in tort reform laws. He and his staff will meticulously research the details in your case, consult expert witnesses and negotiate with the insurance company and its attorneys on your behalf to get you the very best settlement possible. Unlike so many other personal injury attorneys, he has many years of courtroom experience and will not shy away from a trial if it is necessary.
