Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    40%
    My practice is focused on defending citizens accused of crimes. Included in my practice is years of experience with complex drug and drug conspiracy cases, homicides, aggravated and domestic assaults, firearm offenses, sexual offenses and cases designed to keep young (and older) clients from having a criminal record as a result of their first offenses. We focus on investigation and our clients taking as many remedial measures as possible prior to court to help us obtain the very best results

    32 years, 6,000 cases

  2. DUI and DWI
    40%
    From the first day of my practice I have been known as the go to person to fight a serious DUI case. Having helped people from all walks of life, lawyers, state representatives, pilots, commercial drivers and any number of people who desire to avoid the difficulties of a DUI conviction. I defend all alcohol and drug related driving offenses, boating under the influence cases and have successfully defended numerous vehicular homocide cases and Boating Under the Influence homocide cases.

    32 years, 3,000 cases

  3. Domestic violence
    20%
    Domestic Assault is one of the most abused charges levied against citizens. It tears apart families and results in arbitrary and over-used legal penalties. I fight for my client's right to rejoin their families, get access to their belongings, and to clear their good names.

    32 years, 3,000 cases

My practice is concentrated on the defense of citizens accused of crimes. The principle of my practice is simple: I believe that you have to care for the people you represent. I adamantly hold that concern and empathy for those I represent, thus forming the core of my practice. This sincerity ensures not only that everything that can be done will be done, but also that, whether I am defending the wealthy or the worker, it will be done to the best of my ability. I have built a team of attorneys, investigators and paralegals who share my passion for ensuring fair treatment for everyone under the law and you can be assured that everyone in my office, from the receptionist, to your paralegal, to your investigator, and to my co-counsel will provide aggressive and comprehensive support to you and I as we work toward the best resolution of your case.


The range of cases that I handle spans from DUI and Domestic Assault to high profile Murder cases. The focus of my practice is complex criminal charges, notably driving under the influence (DUI) charges. My clientele includes those individuals such as airline pilots and truck drivers whose employment or current situation in life would make the penalties of a DUI conviction unbearable. We also know that it's in an client's best interest to avoid a lengthy trial process and potential conviction. My trial work results in DUI verdicts of not guilty, homicide acquittals and many other not guilty verdicts for those accused of serious crimes. More importantly, my pre-trial efforts result in charges being dismissed or lowered, avoiding the dangers and expense of lengthy jury trials. Many of my clients have been found not guilty, while other clients avoided the harsh penalties called for under criminal statutes. I focus a large area of my practice to Domestic Assault cases with the belief that most families need love and support to get through their diffcult times and not the heavy hand of the law. Convictions in Domestic Assault can result in a citizen losing their home, their job and their freedom. I have written many articles and given many lectures to other attorneys across Tennessee and the country on how to get the best results possible to those charged with Domestic Assault.

I graduated from Middle Tennessee State University and went on to get my law degree from the University of Tennessee School of Law in 1992.  I am a member of The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and The Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have 24 years of experience practicing law in multiple jurisdictions and I am frequently invited to speak and offer educational information to legal organizations across the country.

I represent clients in Davidson, Wilson, Sumner, Macon, Smith, DeKalb, Putnam, Fentress, Rutherford and more. My practice is convenient to Nashville, Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Murfreesboro, Gallatin, Carthage, Cookeville and all cities in and around Middle Tennessee.

I am a proud lifelong resident of Gladeville, Tennessee and live there with my wife and five beautiful kids and grand-daughter.

Exceptional Attorney
Mr. Frankie Lannom did an exceptional job getting serious charges brought against my son dropped to a misdemeanor. Mr. Lannom digs in to get the best possible outcome he possibly can for his clients. We have hired Mr. Lannom on multiple occasions, and will only have Mr. Lannom as our attorney. Thank you for representing our family, Mr. Lannom.

Amazing lawyer and staff!
I was facing a near certain DUI which would have had a significant impact on any future career opportunities in my field. Mr Lannom went over the facts of my case and explained all of the possible outcomes. Because of the hard work and due diligence of both he and his staff my DUI was reduced and two other associated charges were dropped. Without going into too much detail my case would have almost certainly had a different outcome with an attorney of lesser skills. For anyone reading, consider that when choosing someone to represent you for a possible life changing event. Mr Lannom and his staff are excellent and will provide the best defense available. They certainly did me.

The Best
I was charged with Aggravated domestic Assault and facing 3 to 6 years behind bars at the age of 53 . That would have definitely ruined what should be the best years of a person's life . Frank and his associate Donovan didn't give up on me and dealtt all day with the D.A. and helped him understand that I wasn't the monster that the warrant made me out to be . I sure appreciate the hard work from Frank Landon and Associates .

Review for Frank Lannom, attorney at law
I cannot thank Frank Lannom enough for representing me in my DUI case. I absolutely thought I would lose everything, but after consulting with him felt much better, although I was still uneasy about it. He and his staff were very professional and everyone I spoke to was extremely nice and helpful. I have a CDL and just knew my chances were slim to none of being able to keep my drivers license. I was already looking for another job, but Mr. Lannom told me to put it in his hands and for me to try and not worry about it. If you have ever had a DUI, you know that is impossible to do, but I did feel better about it. Anyway, he and his staff went to work for me, and they KNOW the law inside out and was able to come out with an outstanding and unbelievable outcome. I am still driving a truck, still have a CDL just as though nothing happened. There is nothing I can say to show my appreciation more than thank you. I appreciate Mr. Lannom so much and feel I need to do something nice for him and his staff. I guess I feel like I can never repay him for what he has done for me. If you ever need an outstanding lawyer who is not afraid to work tireless for you to receive the best possible outcome, call Mr. Frank Lannom and associates. He will work for you. I asked around when I was looking for a lawyer, and nearly everyone I spoke to said he was the best. Now I know for sure and can honestly state, HE IS THE BEST!

Underage Consumption of Alcohol
My child was charged with underage consumption of alcohol. We chose no other Frank Lannom, he was able to get my child out of this bind and get him the help that he needed. Our family was very worried for our situation, but when we called Frank Lannom he took care of us as if we were his family.

Underage Consumption
Mr George Frankie Lannom represented me for my case in Smith County. I was charged with underage consumption of alcohol. Lannom was able to have my court fees waived and have the opportunity of having the charge off my record, as long as I agreed to attending an alcohol class. Lannom assured me that this was the best option for me. Lannom also gave me some information that will stick with me for as long as I live, "son, nothing good comes from the bottom of a bottle, it only takes one bad decision to effect your life or anothers." Lannoms words sent chills down my spine and that's definitely what I needed at my age. Lannom makes his presence known in the court room and will represent you to the best of his ability!

Happy Client
As the widowed parent of a special needs child, I feel so blessed to have Mr. Lannom to advise and/or represent my child with whatever needs arise. It helps so much to have an attorney who understands the legal as well as the emotional side.

Outstanding Five-Star Legal Representation
If you are reading this review then you are likely considering legal representation. If so, I have two honest suggestions: One, don't ever take a chance when it comes to legal difficulties - hire a reputable attorney. Two, look no further than Mr. Lannom. Mr. Lannom came highly recommended and I now understand exactly why. He is extremely knowledgeable in legal matters and - equally as important - he is experienced in the nuance of court procedure. He anticipated everything related to my matter and even successfully predicted what would be said and by whom. In the end, my outcome far exceeded my expectations and Mr. Lannom is a true credit to his profession.

"I worked through law school as Frank Lannom's full time investigator and saw first hand how he focused completely on each client's case, their particular circumstances, and aggressively worked for the best resolution in that client's case. His love of the law and respect for the freedom of citizens is infectious. After graduating law school, I accepted a position in his firm and am putting the skills and energy I learned (and continue to learn) from Frank into practice defending my client's each day."

I did my research and sent my client to Frank because of his reputation and experience with the Wilson County court system. Frank was able to get the charge dismissed and as a result, I was able to get my clients VOP dismissed. I endorse him without reservation."
