Excellent attorney Mr. Overton took on my domestic violence with bodily injury case and won! He explained everything to me and in two short court appearances the case was dismissed. I was terrified as this is a serious crime in the state of TN. He is also making sure that this is expunged off of my record. Tommy has over twenty years of experience and he knows exactly what to do. I am not from the area and he was a lifesaver, I highly recommend him!

I had a schedule 6 drug possession charge. Had I gone with a public defender, or a less experienced lawyer, I undoubtedly would have lost my case. However, Mr. Overton was able to bring my case back from the precipice, and get it dismissed altogether. Excellent lawyer.

I have use Mr. Overton 4 times over the passed 15 years. Each time he has represented me, he has exceeded my expectations. He is truthful about the case at hand, he gets all the facts, he looks for avenues to best approach the case. Mr. Overton will tell you the worst case scenario as well as the best case. Mr. Overton is not like most lawyers who will tell you best case just to get your money; then goes to court and doesn't deliver knowing the whole time what he told you was impossible. Mr. Overton is not one of those fly by night attorneys. If Mr. Overton believes you are not getting a far shake by the DA assigned to that court date, then Mr. Overton will reschedule and try again. I have actually referred over 20 of my friends to use his services over the passed 15 years. Everyone was satisfied with the results he delivered. He has been serving the Nashville area for almost 30 years and has built a very respected career by getting business by word of mouth. I know several employees of the Metro Nashville Police Force, and they all say he is respected by Judges and DA's. I hope I never break the law again, but if I slip up I will be shooting Mr, Overton a text message. I stand by my statement.
