Russell F. Thomas, Attorney

Former prosecuting attorney Russell Thomas brings that experience to every criminal and DUI client he represents in the Nashville and middle TN area.

A Former Prosecutor Can Make A Difference On Your Case

When you (or a family member) find yourself facing criminal charges in the Nashville area, it can be a frightening time.  Perhaps you were arrested for DUI, were charged with possession of drugs, or are being accused of a crime by your employer.  Or perhaps you were arrested for a violent crime, sex-related charge, weapons, assault or domestic violence. It really doesn’t matter what charge you’re facing because right now, you’re staring at possible jail time and a criminal record.

And I’d like to help.

My name is Russell Thomas and I am a Nashville Criminal Defense Attorney & DUI Defense Attorney.  As a former prosecutor in Nashville and now a criminal & DUI defense attorney with over 13 years of criminal trial experience, I’ve accumulated skills that very few other defense lawyers in the Nashville area can claim. What that criminal trial experience means to you is this….powerful representation for your criminal defense matter.

As a successful criminal & DUI defense lawyer, I understand how the State will proceed against you on the charges, how the investigative work was conducted by local police and what the strengths and weaknesses of your case will be.

When you put me to work, I will make an assessment of the evidence against you and begin building a defense strategy.  We will meet to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case and plan on how to overcome the prosecutor’s strengths….and take advantage of their weaknesses.

We do this to accomplish one of three things….gain a dismissal, a reduction of charges, or an acquittal at trial.

As your criminal defense lawyer, I want what you want: the best possible outcome.

When you’re faced with the stress of having criminal charges filed against you, you don’t want to settle for anything less than the most competent and committed criminal & DUI attorney in Nashville.

If you would like to discuss your situation, give me a call at 615-620-0891 for a free consultation.  I’ll answer your questions and likely ask you a few as well.  Then you can decide if you want to rely on an ex-prosecutor to be your attorney.
