When we talk about the potentially heavy consequences of a DUI conviction in Tennessee in a given case on our criminal defense website at the Knoxville law firm of Hindman & Lanzon, we could hardly overstate the matter.

It’s just a firm reality, as we note on our site, that Tennessee “has some of the stiffest penalties for drunk driving in the United States.”

Our principal attorney has tried more than 3,000 DUI cases, routinely making best efforts to secure optimal results for defendants relying upon the firm’s passionate advocacy and unstinting efforts to implement creative and winning case strategies. We know from long and hard-earned experience that proven and diligently applied legal acumen makes material differences in outcomes for many of our clients.

Notably, that belief is firmly underscored by the central findings in a recently published result authored by a so-called “comparative marketplace” for insurance products that operates online.

The entity QuoteWizard crunched a lot of relevant data germane to DUI conviction statistics, insurance rates and additional information, and came up with some key findings.

Such as this: A DUI defendant who secures help from an experienced attorney can save thousands of dollars in post-conviction insurance hikes that often feature for individuals who don’t retain proven counsel.

And this: Having that veteran attorney on board renders it far more likely that a defendant will have DUI charges reduced.

QuoteWizard’s study conclusions seemingly make it a reasonable course of action for any individual charged with drunk driving to timely consult with an attorney who has a demonstrated track record of client advocacy in DUI defense attorneys.
