Frequently Asked Questions
  • Where can I find a criminal defense lawyer in Clarksville?
    Jeff Grimes & Associates, PLLC is an accomplished law firm proudly serving Montgomery County, TN that provides high-quality representation for those who have been accused of, or charged with a crime. Their firm can draw upon their experiences, skills and resources to explore every possible option for a winning defense. Attorney Jeff Grimes is a champion for the accused, and may be able to give you the edge you need to secure freedom from your charges.
  • How can a good defense lawyer help me?
    A professional criminal defense lawyer can build a comprehensive defense based on available evidence, circumstantial facts, expert witness testimony, challenging prosecution witnesses and other actions that can effectively convince a jury to take a closer look at the prosecution's evidence and allow for the consideration that there may be doubt as to the defendant's guilt. A seasoned defense attorney can stand for the accused and provide confident representation that commands attention, and achieves results.
  • What are the consequences of a poor criminal defense?
    An insufficient or poor criminal defense that provides little evidence to establish doubt as to the defendant's guilt will most definitely result in a conviction with penalty. Some strategies for defense may fall short in trial, but it is the responsibility of your Clarksville criminal defense attorney to see to produce a defense that is raises reasonable doubt sufficiently to the jury. In some cases, a criminal defense may be so inept that it actually allows a greater risk of serious penalties as opposed to a more sound strategy that could have ended with minimal consequences.
  • Why is criminal defense important?
    Criminal defense is perhaps the most important factor in determining whether an individual charged with a crime will go free, or face conviction and the resulting financial penalties, jail or prison sentences and other repercussions, depending on specific charges and severity. An individual's right to a competent defense is of paramount importance in the United States legal system, and every criminal trial requires, at the very least, the right to a proper defense.

    “I can honestly say I was not disappointed.”

    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.

    “The outcome for my request was better than I could have hoped for.”

    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.

    “Best defense lawyer you could ask for.”

    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.

    “Fought with me the whole 2 years my case took for me to get the time with my son I’ve always wanted.”

    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!!
