Are You Being Investigated for a Crime?
Clarksville Criminal Defense Attorneys
In the past, attorneys at the firm have been contacted by individuals who are being investigated for criminal activity. The attorneys are often asked, by those under investigation, whether or not they recommend getting an attorney. Without question, the answer is yes. One of the key rights you have is the right to an attorney. It is imperative that you exercise this right if you are under investigation.
Another right you have is the right to remain silent. If you are being investigated for a serious criminal offense, do not speak to anyone until you've contacted a Clarksville criminal defense attorney at the firm. The attorneys at the firm understand the investigatory procedure.
They know law enforcement officials do not investigate individuals with regard to their involvement in criminal activities unless they have information or evidence which has led them to you. Whether they want to get your side of the story or simply see what you know, protect your rights and consult with an attorney at the firm.
Tips for Handling an Investigation
If you believe you are being investigated for misdemeanors , DUI, assault, sex crimes or any homicide or other serious offense, keep these general tips in mind in order to ensure you and your rights are protected:
- Don't panic. Contact an attorney at Jeff Grimes & Associates, PLLC as soon as possible in order to discuss your situation.
- Don't worry about finding a quick resolution to your case. Under law, there are often time limits imposed in regards to how quickly charges must be filed, etc. So in some circumstances, time could work in your favor - as long as you are working with an experienced and committed attorney.
- Remember the law enforcement and the prosecutor in your case will be determined to achieve a conviction. Your rights must be protected by a defense lawyer that is focused on your freedom and your case. The attorney from the firm will spend the time to investigate the case, and all its facts, in order to determine what defense actions should be initiated to protect you.
- Interviews can be terminated at any time. Protecting your rights is more important than the appearance of being cooperative. You have the right, under the law, to remain silent. Do so.
- Do not lie or justify your actions in any way. There is no reason to lie and doing so could potentially jeopardize the success of your case.
- All documents, potential evidence and written statements should be given to your attorney.

I hired their law firm for a legal case and not only were they highly professional but always courteous and respectful. They exceeded my expectations and got me everything I needed. If I ever need legal services again I will definitely be choosing them in the future.- Lisa S.
If you need legal counsel then I highly recommend you make an appointment with this firm. Mr. Sensing was my attorney and is very dedicated to his clients going to great lengths to provide the very best defense possible. Stays in touch with his clients always bringing them up to speed on what is being done in their case providing copies of everything to the client. HONEST, LOYAL, AND DEDICATED this firm gets 5 stars.- Brad H.
I took a trip out to TN and got in to some trouble in Clarksville and needed representation for a case while I was I back in my home state. I went to Grimes, Sensing & Clemons feeling distraught and like I had no hope, seeking a solid defense attorney that would actually fight for my case and get me the best possible deal. I left feeling comfortable and confident. I can honestly say I was not disappointed, the only time I needed to come back to TN was for the sentencing(mind you cases may differ) and unbelievably Jeffery Grimes was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor as well as talk down the court fines... I strongly suggest Jeffery Grimes as your defense attorney for any legal issues you may have, also their fees are very reasonable and they will do payment plans. Thank you very much Grimes, Sensing and Clemons.- Spence W.
Thank you so much Grimes, Sensing & Clemons PLLC!! I've been working with them for months and I couldn't be happier. Grimes helped with all of the little details I didn't even know I needed. He is always friendly and ready to answer all of my questions. Your attention to my case has allowed me to focus on what's important to me, healing and family. Thank you for helping me I know it’s your job but the peace of mind you gave me is priceless. Thanks again! ~ YC- Satisfied Client
I hired Mr Sensing to assist me with the modification of a parenting plan that just wasn’t working anymore. I hired another lawyer in the Clarksville area that did not do their due diligence. Mr Sensing and his team were great throughout the process. Emails and phone calls were actually returned in a timely manner! Which wasn’t the case with the lawyer I used before. I had access to all my court documents and was always kept informed on what was going on with my case. Lastly Mr Sensing is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. The outcome for my request was better than I could have hoped for, and I honestly feel like that was due to Mr Sensing.- Toni M.
Grimes is the best defense lawyer you could ask for. He was able to take what would generally be a felony for sure and get it down to a misdemeanor and a fine. If you have him as your lawyer, you won't have anything to worry about.- Dennis H.
Mr.Grimes made my case go very smoothly and easily for me I was out of state for a good part of it he went out of his way to let me know if something changed and he was always very professional and fairly priced! I would recommend him a thousand times over!!- David L.
Mr. Sensing is an excellent attorney. He fought with me the whole 2 years my case took for me to get the time with my son I’ve always wanted. I will definitely recommend his services to anyone and I will be going back to him if I have any issues in the future. Also Pat and Amy are awesome!!- Satisfied Client
