Our attorneys succeed in a diverse range of cases including criminal defense, DUI and DWI, personal injury claims, railroad injuries, divorce, and business and tax law.

Personal Injury Litigation
Our attorneys have years of experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury cases, and our litigation skills drive our opponents to settle rather than go to trial. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or wrongful death as the result of another person’s negligence or wrongful act, our lawyers will apply our extensive knowledge toward helping you obtain the maximum recovery possible. We know how insurance companies and their lawyers handle personal injury claims including claims arising from car accidents, medical malpractice, and defective products. For more information about specific types of personal injury claims we handle, please see our personal injury and accidents and injuries pages, and our car accidents FAQ.
Criminal Case litigation
Bateman Gibson lawyers have extensive experience defending clients before the criminal justice system. We achieve not guilty verdicts at trial and negotiate favorable plea bargains on behalf of clients. We represent clients charged with misdemeanor crimes, such as petty theft, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and vandalism, in addition to handling serious felony cases including aggravated assault, burglary, grand theft, and murder. Please see our criminal law page for more information about our criminal practice.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), our lawyers are well-equipped to help you challenge the evidence brought against you, such as breathalyzer and sobriety test results, and minimize penalties and other repercussions of the arrest. Courts take DUI charges seriously – you need an experienced attorney on your side that can help you assert your rights. For more information regarding these charges, please see our DUI/DWI page.
Bateman Gibson lawyers provide compassionate yet assertive representation to clients facing divorce. While our goal is to help you and your spouse come to an amicable agreement as to all issues at play in the divorce, we have the expertise to help you take the case to trial if that is what is necessary to protect your interests. In fact, our firm obtained one of the largest alimony awards in Shelby County history on behalf of our client. For more information about Tennessee divorce law, please see our divorce and family law page and our divorce FAQ.
