Nashville Criminal Defense

“I have been arrested. I have had to bond out. I have had to face time in jail. I know exactly what you’re feeling, what you’re thinking, and what you’re going through. My job is to take the worry off your shoulders. After you’ve been charged with a crime, you need a lawyer. Once you hire Bo Ladner, you have nothing left to worry about. My job is to do the worrying, and help you get through this the best way possible so you can put this behind you.

“I just got arrested. What do I do?”

This is one of the most common questions we get from new clients. Bo has been arrested himself (and “stopped for questioning” more than you can shake a stick at), so he understands. Only an experienced attorney can fully answer this question, and you will not find an attorney in this state who has more experience on every side of the law than Bo Ladner.

“Do I really need an attorney?”

The first thing you need to do when you are accused of committing a crime is to hire a lawyer. Having been a Defendant, working with the prosecution, and working with a public defender, Bo is uniquely situated to understand your needs and get you the best result possible. As sad as it sounds, having a lawyer is often the only thing that keeps a client from going to jail.

“This is why you need an attorney!”

Imagine this – you go to a doctor’s office because you broke your leg. The doctor tells you they need to operate. With a broken leg and 200 episodes of Grey’s Anatomy under your belt, you confidently tell him, “just give me the tools. I can do it on my own.” Obviously, you would further injure or even kill yourself. That is exactly what would happen if you try to handle your legal issue on your own. What happens when the DA offers your split confinement on 1/6 Class B reduced to C on Community Corrections with restitution because you’re not diversion eligible and they refuse an 11/29 reduction? The practice of law is extremely complicated, especially criminal defense. If you want the best result, you need an expert.
