From routine misdemeanors to serious felony charges, Batson Nolan’s criminal defense lawyers have obtained acquittals and favorable dispositions for clients facing serious charges, including murder, robbery, aggravated assault, rape and statutory rape.

Below is a list of some of the criminal defense areas in which we practice:

DUI and Drunk Driving
Legal representation for a DUI offense is essential if you seek to prevent loss of driving privileges and incarceration. Attorneys at Batson Nolan will fight to keep your driving privileges after a drunk driving arrest.

Domestic Assault & No Contact Orders
For anyone arrested on a charge of Domestic Assault in Tennessee, bail conditions include a No Contact Order (NCO), which prohibits any contact with the alleged victim, including returning to the alleged victim’s address. These bond conditions can cause extreme hardship when the defendant and alleged victim are family members. If you have been charged with Domestic Assault and need to return home or want to resume communication with the alleged victim, do not hesitate to contact the attorneys at Batson Nolan about having your conditions of release on bond amended.
