David J. McKenzie

I was raised in Lynchburg, Tennessee in a working class family. I remember my parents leaving for work before sunrise and returning well after dark. I also remember when a distracted driver rear-ended our family car and seriously hurt my mother. As a two income family, when my mother was unable to work our family faced an uncertain future. My parents hired an attorney and he took away the anxiety, the fear, and the worry. I decided at an early age that I wanted to represent families and be the person who helped during dark times. The actions of a negligent individual can bring your life to a screeching halt and recovering as much compensation for my clients as possible is my mission. During my career, I have recovered millions of dollars for my clients and their families.

The only other area of law I practice is criminal defense. I have spent the past ten years representing clients in the criminal courts of Middle Tennessee. I have successfully defended clients with charges ranging from the most serious offense of First Degree Murder to simple assault and countless people charged with Driving Under the Influence. If you find yourself named a defendant and facing incarceration and a criminal conviction on any criminal matter, I will provide a thorough case evaluation and my opinion as to what you can expect in court. The testimonials of my thousands of former criminal clients speak for the philosophy of this firm. Once you are our client we will work tirelessly for you, advocate for you, and protect you.
