    DUI is a special type of crime which is committed by ordinary individuals, not criminals. if you have been charged with a DUI, give me a call and let's discuss the details of why the officer stopped you; did you submit to a field sobriety test and if so how do you think you did; did you submit to a Blood or Breath test, and was it voluntary or was it forced on you. Are there any constitutional issues to address. don't just take a plea....talk to an experienced DUI attorney.

    38 years, 2,060 cases

CALL A FORMER GENERAL SESSIONS JUDGE AND A CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER FOR 35 YEARS FOR ADVICE. I'M ON YOUR SIDE. GIVE ME A CALL.

If you are looking for an experienced Court Room Lawyer, who will fight for you and aggressively represent you, then, give me a call.  I practice in all Courts in Tennessee and Federal District Court.  I have practiced law in WilliamsonCounty(Fanklin, Tennessee) for 31 years.  Whether you have a case in General Sessions Court like a DUI, Simple Possession, Shoplifting, a Probation Violation or something more serious in the Circuit Criminal Court like Burglary, Robbery or Felony Drug charges, give me a call and let's discuss your particular case.   Never go to court without representation by an experienced Attorney.     

 

My primary area of practice is CRIMINAL DEFENSE.   I have handled thousands of Criminal cases over the past 31 years as both a lawyer and a Judge for 15 years.  About half my  cases are defending citizens just like you who have been charged with Driving Under the Influence(DUI).   Most people arrested for  DUI's are just ordinary citizens like you and me.  Most have never been arrested before and most have absolutely no Criminal record whatsoever.

 

If you have been arrested for a DUI, please give me a call and let's talk about  the circumstances under which you were arrested.   Did you take a BAC?  Did the officer give you a Field Sobriety Test, or did you refuse?  What was the reason for the officer to make the initial traffic stop and ultimately the arrest?   The smallest tidbit of information can turn your case from a conviction to a dismissal.   Give me a call and let me evaluate your case.

 

In addition to DUI's, about half of my practice is in representing citizens charged with just about every other crime in the book.   If you are charged with a crime, be it

Shoplifting, Theft, Burglary Robbery, a Probation Violation, Drugs, Parol violations, Misdemeanors of Felony Charges or perhaps you just want a lawyer to file a petition to have the Judge consider reducing your jail time, please give me a call and let's talk about the details of your case.  Every case is unique, just like a finger print. I will honestly evaluate your case and tell you what I think.  I would never want to overpromise and under deliver.     While I cannot guarantee the outcome of a case, I will promise to zealously represent you and do my very best to achieve your objectives.

 

  Remember, although I have been a Judge for many years, I DO NOT JUDGE YOU, I REPRESENT YOU. Give me a call and let's talk in person about your case.

Unparalleled service
I was a first-time offender and at a low point in my life when I hired Lonnie to represent me. His service was nothing short of outstanding. Lonnie was not judgmental, and he was extremely helpful and clear in explaining what the charge against me was, how the process would unfold, and the various things he would do to defend me. Lonnie spent many years as a Criminal Judge, and he obviously knows the law, the system, and the people in a way that no other criminal defense attorney in Williamson County—and beyond—could. I am very happy with Lonnie’s handling of my case and the superb and personal attention he provided throughout the process. Lonnie’s staff, also, is top-notch. I highly recommend Lonnie and his law firm to anyone who faces a criminal charge. One’s freedom is serious business, not to be entrusted to another lightly. With Lonnie, you will know that you are in the best of hands.

Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Hoover helped me with a first DUI offense as well as Leaving the Scene of an Accident Charge. His knowledge of the court system and outstanding guidance provided my case with an unbelievable outcome. I could not thank him and his team more for their hard work and dedication to my case. His thorough understanding of my situation allowed me to feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Mr. Hoover’s wise worse of encouragement allowed me to now focus better on my future. I highly recommend Mr. Hoover to anyone with similar issues.

They were extremely easy to deal with and they were able to successfully get my case retired. They took care of everything and told me the very few things I needed to do. It was very very easy and he informed me on everything that was going on and reminded me of dates. Highly recommended them.

My Case vs Tennessee
From day one Mr Hoover and his team was very informative about my options. We consulted about my case the day I met with him, and up until the very day of settling he continued to look any and all possible options. He was very thorough and quick in getting a resolution I was happy with. I would highly recommend Mr Hoover.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr Hoover and his office team took a very complex, time consuming, and difficult case to an extremely successful conclusion for us. His focus, determination, patience, perseverance, organization, and professional knowledge led to this success. He was always available to us for questions and concerns. His office staff are especially kind and very efficient. I’m not sure anyone else could have done as much.

Best Choice for an Attorney
I feel so fortunate that Lonnie Hoover was my attorney for a recent case. Not only did he get my case initially retired, it was eventually dismissed for a case that rarely gets dismissed in Williamson County. Although I knew of his reputation beforehand, his knowledge, professionalism, relationships in the court system, and attention to detail was beyond even what I expected. He treated me with the upmost respect despite the situation I was in. If anyone needs a defense attorney for the Williamson County court system, it would be a huge mistake if you don’t go with Judge Hoover. Choosing your attorney is a difficult task, and incredibly important for your desired outcome. Look no further for your Attorney - Choose Lonnie Hoover.

CASE DISMISSED AND EXPUNGED IN 3 DAYS
Gifted with a razor sharp intellect and armed with infinite experience and years of seasoned wisdom, Mr. Lonnie Ray Hoover is an extraordinary attorney. Starting count from the time I got arrested, Mr. Hoover got my CASE DISMISSED AND EXPUNGED IN A RECORD 3 DAYS. Gentle and sympathetic to my situation, Mr. Hoover took the time to thoroughly understand my background, circumstances surrounding my arrest and the situation at hand. He answered all my questions with patience and sensitivity. He went out of his way to explain the legal terminology and its ramifications. He made sure that I understood the right course of action and the best case scenario. Keeping my best interests in mind, he advised on the most appropriate course of action. At times, he also acted as a life-coach and imparted some very precious life lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. With his decades of experience as an attorney and a judge, I knew from the very start that I was in safe hands. He worked tirelessly on my case, prioritizing my needs over his comfort. Very mindful of my time-sensitive situation, he pursued the case aggressively and fearlessly and secured the win for me. CASE DISMISSED AND EXPUNGED IN 3 DAYS. I would also like to take a moment to mention and thank his remarkable paralegal, Lisa Blackwell who knew all the details of my case like the back of her hand. Always up to date on the current proceedings, she navigated and maneuvered me when I was unsure and directionless. Kind, sympathetic and caring, Lisa is someone you want on your side. She’s a gem of a person, very hard to come by. Together, they make one phenomenal team! I truly feel incredibly lucky to have had the experience of being represented by Mr. Hoover. Thank you Mr. Hoover for being the guiding light during the dark times.

Awesome Attorney
Mr. Hoover represented me for a probation violation. His knowledge of the judicial system, available options, and specific guidance on corrective actions to take were invaluable. He has helped me not only navigate the judicial system for the best positive outcome but has helped me to choose a different path for my future. I highly recommend his services.

Kind, understanding, and gets things done!
I retained Mr. Hoover at a very stressful time in my life. I was charged with shoplifting when I inadvertently failed to scan some of my items at a self check out line. Mr. Hoover listened intently to my story when I met with him and took many notes. He keenly listened to me as he asked many questions and calmed my fears. I was so frightened and his reassurance that he would do the very best he could for me eased my worries. He told me to go home and do something for myself, as caring for others had gotten me into my agitated stressed out persona to begin with. He assured me that worrying about this situation wouldn’t change the outcome so to put my worries aside and let him get to work on it. When my court date came, we were hoping for a pretrial diversion, where I would remain on probation for a year and then have my record expunged. Never did I expect that he would be able to get my charge completely retired and I didn’t even have to appear before the Judge to plead! No charges on record! I was fighting back tears of joy! Mr. Hoover’s attention and empathy to me as a client was what made this happen. I highly recommend Mr Hoover as an advocate on your side in a criminal case. I can now put this behind me and move forward, and I owe it all to him.

Lonnie Hoover and his team were behind Amazing!
I contacted Mr. Hoover when I was faced with domestic assault charges. He was referred to me by a friend of mine who also had an amazing experience. Never in a million years would I have thought something like this would happen to me. When I met with Mr. Hoover the first time and explained what had happened, he was not only confident but prepared me for what was to come. He guided me throughout every step and the end result was my case being DISMISSED. He proceeded to file a motion for it to be expunged. I cannot thank him and his wonderful team enough for being so kind and answering all of my questions and mostly making me feel more at ease the entire process.

DUI First Offence Representation
Had a very good experience with Mr.Hoover and paralegal Miss Blackwell, very accurate and timely communications from the very beginning all the way until the end of the general sessions hearing via phone email and regular mail. Very pleased with Mr.Hoover as he was able to reduce my DUI first offence in Williamson County TN to Reckless Endangerment. I am not a resident of the state of TN but a resident in the State of FL so this was a very satisfactory outcome for me. Mr.Hoover was also successfully able to reschedule my initial hearing twice when I had personal problems traveling to the state of TN on the originally scheduled dates. I will with full confidence recommend Mr.Hoovers law firm to anyone looking for assistance with legal matters in TN and or Williamson Country. Mr.Hoovers brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the table specially being that he was previously general sessions court judge and the the fact that his practice has been around for many years.

So Thankful!!!
Mr. Hoover went above and beyond for me and my case! I was charged with a DUI, and I unfortunately had an incredibly high BAC. We were facing an uphill battle, and I would have had a much harsher penalty had Mr. Hoover not been on my side. He made sure I understood all of the options we could take, and with his expertise and advice, we received a STUNNING victory with the DA. He was always available to answer my questions, he made me feel like I wasn't alone, and he offered a payment plan to retain his services. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!! I am so grateful for him and his expert advise! Lisa, his Paralegal, was such a pleasure to work with as well! She knows her stuff inside and out, and she was even there for me when I called her crying. They are such an incredible duo!!

Excellent Representation I Felt Confident In
Lonnie helped me with a first offense DUI case that was incredibly challenging for me and my family. He explained things carefully and took the time to answer every question we had, as we had them. I didn’t feel alone or uncertain in a process that I had previously little to no experience in, which meant I could prepare affectively and proactively for my court hearing. His previous experience as a judge lent a deeper understanding to the way we should proceed with my case, and he was ultimately able to achieve our best case scenario in court, which I and my family will forever be grateful for. I highly recommend Lonnie Hoover as a criminal defense attorney.

Best Lawyer in Town
I have been charged with DUI First Offense, Move Over Law and Failure of Financial Responsibility. In the process of hiring an attorney I first contacted Lonnie Ray Hoover and had a brief conversation for an hour. Based on that conversation I decided to hire him and never consulted another attorney trying to decide between attorneys. The key reasons for me to make that decision are he is crystal clear on explaining the next steps and also he is on vacation but took his time on the call and never in rush to explain or complete the call. Once he is back , I visited him in person at his office he once again reviewed and explained everything that will happen from that point forward. Over all the time in the conversations we had, he never gave me false hope and at the same time never denied the positive outcome. He kept me to the reality of the situation. I cannot just put it in one word of few sentences of what he is capable of, On the court day his experience spoke volumes. I was so relieved with the positive outcome. It’s like a huge burden taken off me. Reduced to Reckless driving and all other charges dismissed. I took a right decision hiring Lonnie Ray Hoover and never looked back. Thank You!

Domestic assault
Mr. Hoover was outstanding in representing my son. Kind, compassionate, non-judge mental, and clearly an astute expert in law. He was very thorough in explaining to us our options and potential outcomes and gathering all of the documentation to help win our case. The charges against my son were completely dismissed and expunged. Thank you Mr. Hoover!

Lonnie Hoover is a miracle-worker!
When our family faced turmoil after a relapse earlier this year, we were all feeling cautious and afraid, but knew that it had to be possible to have some of the charges reduced and/or dismissed. Looking at four Class: A Misdemeanors, one Class: C Misdemeanor and a Class: B Felony, as a range 2 offender, is terrifying! We knew we had to find the right attorney and find him (or her) quickly. Having grown up in Williamson County, I was familiar with a few of the names of local attorneys I found online, and began calling to inquire about Consultations. Mr. Hoover’s office was the easiest to get on the phone and had the first availability for a Consult that week. After meeting with Mr. Hoover and discussing our situation, honestly, I felt even more confused and anxious on how best to proceed in hiring an attorney. Mr. Hoover knew that I was in a rough place and needed some direction. He made many suggestions on how to most likely receive the best results in court, including rehabilitation options prior to that court date, considering the drug court program, and/or even working for the police, among other things. At first, this was startling to me and I did not think that Mr. Hoover understood me or my situation. However, i continued to talk to friends and family and Mr. Hoover became very highly recommended, with his local history as a judge for many years prior to his current practice. It was still with hesitation when we decided to hire and retain Mr. Hoover to represent my case but we knew he was the best choice if we wanted any chance of forgiveness and leniency- and he sure was, the very best choice! At our court date, my anxiety was through the roof. Just thinking about my daughters and family having to be without me because I messed up and had a temporary lapse of judgement was eating me up inside. When he spotted me in the court room, he began to make his way over to us. As he got closer, his smile continued to grow, until he was beaming in front of us. We held our breaths, knowing the news from his talk with the DA’s office had to be either really good or really bad.. Mr. Hoover delivered even better news than we had imagined! Due to his insight and knowledge on Williamson County laws and court system, he had provided the best recommendations, which not only allowed me to receive the help and treatment I desperately needed, but also helped keep our family together, strong and supportive. We are truly amazed and blessed by the work of Mr. Hoover and his ability to have my charges changed, to plead guilty to only two Class: A Misdemeanors. My family and I cannot be more proud of what Mr. Hoover was able to accomplish, and we definitely highly recommend him for anyone needing the best Criminal Defense Attorney in our area!
