Family law decisions involve emotional matters such as protecting your children’s best interests. Let Attorney David Ridings offer an in-depth understanding of how your decisions today will impact your life tomorrow.

And, remember… when on the scene of a “domestic” call, the police officer has a wide range of authority called “officer discretion”. The law gives the police officer wide latitude in determining what is called the “primary aggressor” in a domestic confrontation. But, sometimes the police get it wrong. Sometimes, because of circumstances beyond your control, the police fail to see the “true” story. Sometimes they arrest the wrong person. Sometimes they arrest the wrong person because of old stereotypes that never seem to change. Make sure you’re your rights are protected, and that the “rest of the story” is told by an experienced Nashville Criminal Lawyer like David Ridings.
