Experienced Trial Lawyer Serving All Tennesseans

Building A Strong Defense Strategy For Your DUI Case

Being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) is a frightening and anxiety-provoking situation. The consequences of a conviction are serious. In Tennessee, a DUI conviction carries a minimum jail sentence, even for a first offense.

If you’ve been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, avoiding a conviction is essential. A DUI conviction can involve:

  • Heavy fines
  • Jail time
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Ignition interlock device installation
  • Drug and alcohol treatment

My name is Jeremy Trapp. As a Smithville DUI defense lawyer, I can fight to get your charges reduced or even dismissed, depending on the details of your arrest. Don’t assume that a conviction is inevitable. Call me at 615-988-4035 to discuss your options.

A DUI Charge Needs A Strong Defense

A DUI charge can be challenged on many fronts. Police must follow strict procedures during a DUI arrest, and any deviation can be used to challenge the charges.

First, police must have “cause” to pull you over for speeding or driving slowly or erratically. I can also challenge the case if the arresting officer:

  • Didn’t read you your rights
  • Performed the field sobriety tests incorrectly
  • Lacked sufficient cause to pull you over
  • Used faulty breath test equipment

As the criminal defense attorney at Jeremy D. Trapp, Attorney at Law, I have a proven track record of successfully fighting all types of DUI charges, from first offenses to felonies. I can even help if you’re from out of state and got arrested while passing through Tennessee.
