Drug Paraphernalia

In Tennessee, if you are charged with a drug offense of any kind there is a certain stigma that goes along with it. That is why it is extremely important to hire experienced and skilled lawyers to fight for you. Not just show up in court, but make sure that a Drug Paraphernalia charge is not only dismissed, but expunged and never to be heard of again. Some people think that a charge for a pipe, bong, vial, or grow lights can be easily handled and they appear on their own without the assistance of an attorney. This is not the case! A conviction for Drug Paraphernalia can have the same impact on your ability in the future to get into school or get a job as a Drug Possession case.

To Be Convicted of Drug Paraphernalia
  1. That the Defendant used, possessed with intent to use, drug paraphernalia to plant, cultivate, grow, harvest, manufacture, convert, produce, process, test, analyze, store, contain, conceal, inject, ingest, inhale, or otherwise introduce into the human body a controlled substance; and
  2. The Defendant acted intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly.

If you are convicted of Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (Tennessee Code Annotated 39-17-425) faces a Class A Misdemeanor, up to 11/29 days in jail, fines, costs, and possibly drug class or community service.

Client Reviews
I loved working with Sarah and Joey. They are very kind people who made sure I understood every step of the process. They treated me with kindness continuously and I would definitely use them again! Taylor
Joey is a talented lawyer who cares about his clients. Sarah his assistant is a true professional, but more than that they care about you as a person first. I would highly recommend the team. Bill Hoskinson
Relief! Mark Freeman is the best lawyer I have ever had. He took care of my Criminal Case in one day. Answered all phone calls and returned them all as well. He didn't hesitate to answer any of my questions. I am very thankful he had my case dropped! Not many lawyers can do that. I highly recommend him. He treats you as more so family than a client. If I ever have another case Mark Freeman will be my lawyer. Peter P.
Joey: Just wanted you to know how appreciative I am to be represented by such an outstanding attorney. You did an awesome job. Thank you for your help and support throughout. I have NEVER gotten so much for my money with any other attorney before. I'm looking forward to referring you as much as possible in the future. Thanks again buddy. Charles G.
I just want to say that Mrs. Carolanne King is the greatest lawyer I have ever had. She is truly amazing and knows how to get the job done. She walked with me through the whole court process and worked for me when everyone else said that they could not help me. I am truly grateful for the law firm of Freeman and Fuson. D.D
