Former Prosecutors Defending Against Major Felony Charges
Prosecutors who become criminal defense attorneys can provide proactive, powerful representation for those accused of serious offenses like murder or felony assault.
In southeast Tennessee, the skilled defense lawyers who aggressively safeguard client interests are former assistant district attorney general and former criminal court judge Amy Reedy, and former prosecutor William Reedy. If you or a family member is charged with a violent crime or under investigation, contact the Reedy Law Office immediately. We can also step in a “no bond’ case to get the accused released until trial.
Violent Crimes Demand The Best Defense Possible
With 50 years of combined experience in the Tennessee criminal justice system, our attorneys have handled many major felony cases, including murder, manslaughter, vehicular homicide, aggravated assault, sexual assault, armed robbery, first-degree burglary, kidnapping or firearm offenses. We understand that the criminal charges you are facing are potentially life-changing, including years or even life in prison.
Our law firm not only investigates the circumstances of your arrest but also learns everything about you, including your background, family dynamics and factors in your life that put you where you are now. This approach helps us challenge the accusations and the evidence, and it allows us to argue mitigating circumstances in the event of a conviction or plea negotiation.
And what will you learn about us? That we treat you as a human being, not just a customer. Many criminal defense law offices are too eager to plead out cases. We fight for your rights, working hard in the trenches where cases are won and lost, preparing, investigating, negotiating when appropriate and arguing passionately for you in court when necessary.
We Have Experience With ‘No Bond’ Cases
In serious felony cases, prosecutors may ask for an impossibly high bail amount or ask that bond be denied entirely. If you are set to stand trial, your bond must be fair, unless that court rules no bond at all. We can file a variety of motions that increase your chances of gaining your freedom, at least temporarily, if you are unable to afford a high bond or a defense attorney. If you are not a flight risk or threat to the public, you should not have to stay in jail awaiting your trial date. Our lawyers have had success in reversing no bond decisions, as well as obtaining bond reductions.
