About Carrie

Learn Carrie’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    All types of criminal charges, including domestic assault, assault, robbery, homicide, rape, theft, and drug charges. No client is ever judged, only represented with dignity and respect. Ms. Searcy is available to schedule office or phone consultations.

  2. Juvenile law
    Representation of both children and parents. For children I handle both status offenses (crimes) and truancy matters. For parents I handle dependent/neglect cases and termination of parental rights, as well as paternity, visitation, and support.

I am originally from Northern Indiana, near Notre Dame.  I relocated to the Middle Tennessee area in 1999.  I received my undergraduate degree from Trevecca Nazarene University, graduated from the Nashville School of Law in December of 2010, and obtained my license to practice law in the spring of 2011.

I meet my clients during very stressful times in their lives, and strive to not only provide excellent legal representation, but to ease their concerns regarding the process and likely outcomes.

I handle a wide variety of legal matters, including juvenile and family law matters, misdemeanor and felony criminal cases, and am committed to providing my clients with effective legal advice and representation.

False Domestic Violent Charges
Carrie Searcy is a great Lawyer. I had a disgrutled ex-finances put false domestic violence charges on me and I had never had any criminal charges on me ever. Carrie Searcy representation of me and my character got my false charges dropped. Even when we were at trial se caught my ex-fiance in a lie in the trial seat that further provided my innocence. Carrie was very professional, patience, keep me informed on my case and showed humility and kindness as she saw that I was visiblibly upset with the false charges. She also got my record expunged. I can't thank her enough and I would definitely recommend her for a lawyer in criminal or domestic case.

Carrie Searcy represented me when I was charged with burglary and assault. She was patient with me and explained all the possible outcomes of my case. When we were in court, she worked so hard defending my rights and arguing my case that my charges were dismissed. She is the best attorney in Nashville. She will listen to you, ask you questions, and is concerned about your future.

Trustworthy Attorney (Rare Combo)
Ms. Searcy is a very knowledgeable and competent attorney. She makes sure you're informed and responds to your phone calls or emails in a very reasonable amount of time. I work within the justice system and can tell you that she cares about what she is doing and who she is working for.

Saved My Hind In!
Ms. Searcy is totally discreet and had my interests in mind the whole time. She always answered my phone calls and was able to make it so I understood what was going on throughout the divorce process, if you are a man dealing with a woman that wants to take you to the bank, this is the best attorney there is, and she is awesome!!!!
