Top Criminal Lawyers – Call Kenneth Quillen


At times I must recommend another Nashville criminal lawyer.  There are about 340 lawyers listed in one prominent directory who claim to be criminal defense attorneys. Most of these people I have never seen in a courtroom.  I suspect most have never tried a criminal case in front of a jury and fewer still have heard a jury foreperson announce “not guilty.”

Be wary of ratings of lawyers on the directory sites.  That lawyer with the five-star rating may have never tried a case in front of a jury. Those four-star lawyers may be eight months out of law school.

Reviews are are problematic.  The best result a criminal lawyer can get for a client is dismissal and expungement.  No one with a good name to protect wants go on record to publish a review calling attention to their prior involvement in the criminal justice system. That leaves anonymous reviews.  A high percentage of these reviews appear suspect. Bogus reviews are unethical.  That is not to say the lawyers are behind the reviews.  Some website maven/SEO specialist may be the culprit.

All the lawyers on the list are very experienced and very good criminal trial attorneys.  This list is certainly not exhaustive but should be helpful to people searching for a good criminal lawyer.  -Kenneth Quillen
