Criminal Defense Attorney in Chattanooga, Tennessee

A criminal conviction can turn your life upside down. Once you’ve been charged with a crime, it becomes so much more difficult to qualify for a loan, start a business, or even land a decent job. The worst part, though, is that a criminal accusation can arise from a single mistake you made years ago. Maybe you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or maybe it wasn’t your fault at all. But now you’re facing huge fines and jail time.

If you have been arrested in Chattanooga or the rest of Hamilton County, you need to reach out for help. For more than a decade, I’ve fought on the side of the underdog, seeking justice for individuals accused of DUI/DWI, domestic violence, drug charges, and more. The legal system is stacked against you, so it’s important to hire a local attorney to help you fight back. If you're in Chattanooga, Red Bank, East Ridge, Collegedale, or the rest of Hamilton County, set up a free case evaluation with me today. At Zak Newman Attorney at Law, your future truly matters.
