George F. Lannom

George F. Lannom, I concentrate  my practice in the defense of citizens accused of crimes. The principle of my practice is simple: I believe that you have to care for the people you represent. This ideology results in a personal, specialized approach to each case. I adamantly hold that concern and empathy for those I represent, thus forming the core of my practice. This sincerity ensures not only that everything that can be done will be done, but also that, whether I am defending the wealthy or the worker, it will be done to the best of my ability.

Widely varying in type and intensity, the range of cases that I handle spans from DUI to numerous high profile murder cases. The focus of my practice is complex criminal charges, notably driving under the influence (DUI) charges. My clientele includes those individuals such as airline pilots and truck drivers whose employment or current situation in life would make the penalties of a DUI conviction unbearable, as well as reaching out to any individual seeking to avoid a lengthy trial process and potential conviction. My trial work results in DUI verdicts of not guilty, homicide acquittals and many other not guilty verdicts for those accused of serious crimes. More importantly, my pre-trial efforts result in charges being dismissed or lowered, avoiding the dangers and expense of lengthy jury trials. Many of my clients have been found not guilty, while other clients avoided the harsh penalties called for under criminal statutes.

After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University, I obtained my law degree from the University of Tennessee School of Law in 1992.  I am a member of The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and The Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have fourteen years of experience practicing law in multiple jurisdictions and I am frequently invited to speak and offer educational information to organizations.

I represent clients in Davidson, Wilson, Sumner, Macon, Smith, DeKalb, Putnam, Fentress, Rutherford and more. My practice is convenient to Nashville, Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Murfreesboro, Gallatin, Carthage, Cookeville and all cities in and around Middle Tennessee.

I am a proud lifelong resident of Gladeville, Tennessee and live there with my wife and five beautiful kids.
