Knox County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Former Prosecutors Working for You

Knox County was initially named in honor of Henry Knox, who was the first U.S. Secretary of War. Similar to its southern neighbor, Fulton County, Knox County is known for its scenic drive fall festival that takes place the first two weekends in October, the Knox County Drive.

According to the 2010 census, nearly 53,000 people lived in Knox County, which was actually less than the 2000 census when the county had nearly 56,000 people and 22,056 households. Despite the fact that the population in Knox County decreased between 2000 and 2010, that hasn't changed the fact that people still get arrested every day in the county and are in need of quality legal representation.

When facing criminal charges, it's normal to feel nervous, scared, and uncertain about what the future might bring. There are a number of negative ramifications that go hand-in-hand with a criminal conviction; therefore, it's essential that you do everything possible to fight for your rights.

If you are currently facing criminal charges or if you're the target of a pre-file investigation, we strongly urge you to contact a Knox County criminal defense attorney from the Johnson Law Group right away.
