Passionate in the Pursuit of Justice TELL ME YOUR SIDE OF THE STORY

Denise M. Nalley

Attorney at Law

Having been both a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, I recognize that it takes good attorneys on both sides to make the justice system work as intended. In today's world, everyone is overly focused on prosecuting crimes and getting retribution. People are afraid. But fear impedes the process of justice and people forget that an accusation is only an accusation. If you are the accused, you become acutely aware of the need for someone to speak up for you. Without a true advocate, it's a one-sided war. Let me use my experience and knowledge to be that advocate for you.

"I understand that your future and your freedom hang in the balance, so I'll leave no stone unturned while working toward a positive resolution for you."
