In Need of a DUI Lawyer in Knoxville, TN?

Consult with the Law Office of Richard Baker about your DUI offense

Driving under the influence is a serious crime in Tennessee and carries harsh penalties for offenders.

DUI cases are among the most complex in our judicial system. One reason is the many constitutional laws relating to police conduct around illegal traffic stops and illegal searches and seizures, which are often encountered in drunk driving investigations. Another reason is the advanced science involved in the chemical (usually blood or breath) testing associated with DUI cases.

Both the Tennessee and the United States Constitution requires that the State prove you’re guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Because you’re innocent until proven guilty, hiring an effective DUI attorney is paramount to ensuring you’re not stripped of your driving privileges. That’s where the Law Office of Richard Baker in Knoxville, TN comes in.

Attorney Richard Baker is well-versed in all the laws pertaining to DUI charges. Schedule a consultation with a competent DUI lawyer today.
