Robert Lee Vogel

About Me

I provide aggressive, experienced representation for my clients. I have tried numerous criminal defense cases with great results. In the last twelve months, I have won 5 out of 5 of my criminal cases that were going to trial.


I am available to represent clients in State Court and Federal Courts around the country. I am based in East Tennessee, in the scenic town of Knoxville. I can work with you anywhere, if my expertise is what you need.


I am a firm believer in the jury system. It is the best way for an individual to get justice in the world. It overcomes the advantage of the government in criminal cases and of the corporate power-brokers and insurance giants in injury and consumer protection cases. Jury trials are the great equalizer, which is why governments, district attorneys, police, corporations and insurance companies fear jury trials.


Contact us today if you are serious about your case. We are.
