Make notes of exactly what occurred prior to your arrest, of all statements or comments made to you or by you. If possible, obtain a copy of the police report and give all of the information to your attorney. Remember that you have rights protected by the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions, namely the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Criminal defense lawyers understand these rights and work to ensure that citizens charged with criminal offenses are treated fairly. It is important that you consult with a competent Nashville criminal defense attorney before talking to the police or appearing in court.
In any type of DUI case in Tennessee , be sure to make a record of everything you remember about the traffic stop. Make a list of the names and addresses of any witnesses to the incident. Write down your activities of the few hours prior to the traffic stop. Include any comments or statements the police officer made to you, any comments you made to the officer, and any road side tests or alcohol tests that the officer had you perform. Get a copy of the police report of the incident and give all of the information to your attorney. Within the first hours after arrest, you can have an independent drug and alcohol test done which can help your case.
