Welcome to Defending Tennessee

The criminal law blog for Lee Criminal Defense

Welcome to “Defending Tennessee,” the Criminal Law Blog of Lee Criminal Defense.  Defending Tennessee’s primary author is Nicholas Lee, an attorney that practices Criminal Defense and DUI Defense in Knoxville and the surrounding areas, while maintaining a small general practice to help meet his clients’ needs.

“Defending Tennessee” will be written with three audiences in mind: (1) people who need to learn more about Criminal Law because they, or someone they know, are facing criminal charges in Tennessee; (2) attorneys looking for an aide to stay abreast of the developments in the area of Tennessee Criminal Law; and (3) any non-lawyers who just want to know more about Tennessee Criminal Law.  The goal of “Defending Tennessee” will be to satisfy the needs of all three audiences by posting informed, yet concise (and hopefully not overly-dry) pieces on the fundamentals and developments in Criminal Law in Tennessee.
