Aggressive and dedicated representation in state and federal courts.

Federal Crimes

Any criminal charge is a serious matter, but charges filed in federal court often carry more substantial penalties and long-term consequences than state-level charges. Attorney Jeffrey Coller is admitted to practice in United States District Court for Eastern Tennessee, which means he and his team can assist you when you are facing federal criminal charges. We are equipped to handle charges related to illegal drugs, racketeering, conspiracy, forgery, counterfeiting, computer crimes, and a wide range of other federal offenses.


Crimes on College Campuses

At our firm, we understand that college is a time for learning, but also for pushing boundaries. When the boundaries are pushed too far, the consequences can be severe. With that in mind, we represent college students charged with offenses such as theft, underage drinking, underage DUI, sexual battery, and other crimes on the campuses of the University of Tennessee, Johnson University, South College, and other institutions throughout the region.

Drug Arrests

Tennessee law takes a hard line against illegal drugs, including marijuana. If you are facing charges for simple possession or casual exchange, we will work with you to ensure that your rights are protected. When you are charged with drug trafficking, the stakes are even higher, but we have the tools to help you build an effective defense. We will review the details of your arrest, the searches conducted by police, and any other information that could be helpful in avoiding a conviction.

Asset Forfeiture

If the police suspect that your property was involved in the commission of a crime or purchased with illicit money, Tennessee law allows the property to be seized. Getting your property back can be challenging, but our team can help. By taking steps to demonstrate that money or property was not related to criminal activity, assets that were seized can be returned to you. We will work with you in asserting your constitutional rights and recovering what is rightfully yours.
