Values-Driven Legal Service

For more than three decades, my practice of criminal defense, family law and civil and commercial litigation has been built on a foundation of core values that inform every decision and action I take. At John D. Schwalb, PLLC, integrity is at the heart of my work, ensuring that I handle each case with the utmost ethical standards.

Good listening helps me to truly hear and understand your concerns, while clear and direct communication means you will always know where you stand. These values press me to achieve the best outcomes possible for my clients.

Dedicated Defense Across A Range Of Charges

With over 35 years of legal experience, I have a robust understanding of Tennessee’s criminal justice system. I am dedicated to defending the rights of individuals facing misdemeanor and felony charges, ensuring that each client receives a personalized, high-quality defense of their liberty and their future.

Whether you are dealing with accusations of assault and battery, a drunk driving charge, or a serious allegation, such as burglary, drug possession, homicide or illegal weapons possession, I will provide you with a comprehensive defense. My approach is thorough and detail oriented. I will investigate your circumstances and the nature of your arrest. I will work to uncover every aspect of your case to build an effective strategy aimed at safeguarding your legal options and minimizing harsh penalties, such as obtaining a dismissal, alternative sentencing or a reduction of charges.

A Trusted Counselor At Law

I believe that the core of legal representation is a partnership between attorney and client. With integrity, attentive listening and clear communication, I will strive to understand your legal needs and tailor my legal strategy accordingly.

I am committed to being straightforward. I will provide you with realistic assessments and will guide you with honesty. You will hear what you need to know to successfully contend with the legal issues ahead of you, not just what you might want to hear. My criminal defense and family law practice serves clients throughout middle Tennessee. My civil and commercial litigation services extend from middle Tennessee out to the Southern District of Florida and across to the Central District of California.
