Protecting Your Rights in the Face of Serious Criminal Charges

If you have been accused of a crime, it is important to remember that you still have rights. Under the U.S. Constitution, you have the right to be presumed innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You also have the right to remain silent, as well as the right to qualified legal representation from an attorney who can fight for you. At Ridings Law Group, P.C., we recommend that you exercise these rights and contact our office as soon as possible for a free consultation with our dedicated Nashville criminal defense attorney.

In Tennessee, the crime you are charged with determines the penalties you face if convicted. Defendants accused of sex crimes can face up to thirty years in prison if convicted. Violent crimes, like murder charges, can carry severe penalties of life in prison or death if convicted on capital murder charges. With your freedom at stake, you can’t risk not having a seasoned Nashville criminal defense attorney on your side. Our attorneys can help you defend against many of the most severe criminal charges.
