Nashville Drug Crime Lawyers
Tenacious Defense of Your Rights & Freedom
When defending a client charged with a drug crime, one of our focuses is on our client's Fourth Amendment rights against illegal search and seizure. At May McKinney, our Nashville drug crime lawyers combine almost 80 years of collective legal experience with cutting-edge knowledge of criminal defense techniques and the latest laws to provide more effective counsel.
Whether your drug crime case involves illegal substances or prescription drugs, we can work to ensure that your rights have not been violated at any time during the investigation or arrest. Overzealous law enforcement can sometimes make mistakes or skip important steps that end up violating your rights. When this occurs, we expose it and use these violations to reduce charges or even secure dismissals.

Search & Seizure Violations Affect Drug Evidence
At May McKinney, we look at the initial search and seizure and identify if anything was done illegally. There must be probable cause for the authorities to come into your house or car and conduct a detailed search. Their findings must be based on fact, not conjecture or assumptions. Just being in the same room with cocaine does not necessarily mean that you possessed or used it.
Any instance where your rights were violated will help us build an argument that the evidence collected in your drug crime investigation should be suppressed, severely hampering if not destroying the prosecution's case against you. Our attorneys have filed and argued many motions to exclude illegally obtained evidence. You have rights, and we will work to protect those rights, whether you are charged with simple possession of marijuana or cocaine, conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, or forgery of a prescription.
