Defending Your Rights And Future During Criminal Proceedings

Just because the charge you are facing is a misdemeanor doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take it seriously. Just like felonies, misdemeanors can affect your ability to get a job, rent an apartment, buy a home or even attend certain colleges in Tennessee and other states. Additionally, certain misdemeanor traffic offenses can even lead to points being assessed by insurance companies, which, if you accrue enough points, could eventually cause you to be dropped by your insurance provider.

We have years of experience handling a wide variety of misdemeanor charges, helping clients throughout the Germantown areas.

We Will Work To Keep Points Off Your License And Insurance

In Tennessee, criminal charges can result in points being assessed against your license by the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you accrue 12 or more points in a 12-month period, your license will be suspended, which can affect your ability to get around and even maintain employment in many cases. Your insurance company may also assess points against you that act like a risk assessment tool. If you accrue too many points, your insurer may raise your rates, drop you from your policy or even refuse future coverage.

At Blount Law Firm, PLLC, we understand the importance of keeping points off your license and insurance policy, which is why we will take immediate action to defend your rights after a traffic ticket or misdemeanor charges are issued. We will be thorough in our review of the charges, evidence and case against you, and we will take the steps necessary to get charges reduced or dismissed so your record remains clear of damaging offenses.
