Attorney for Assault, DUI, and Traffic Charges in Tennessee

Have you been charged or accused of a crime? We can HELP! We work for YOU and YOUR RIGHTS!

Being accused of a crime is a life-changing experience – a Knoxville criminal defense lawyer can help you defend your rights. The accusation alone can affect your personal and professional relationships; if you are convicted, the situation only gets worse. Even misdemeanor convictions can in some cases limit your career options, your ability to own a gun or your standing in the community.

To prevent a criminal charge from ruining your future, contact The Baker Law Firm. Our founding attorney, Lance K. Baker, understands the critical nuances of criminal law in Tennessee, and he can provide you with the best possible defense. He believes all clients deserve representation that protects their due process rights, even in the most challenging legal circumstances.
