Your Life Is On The Line. Don’t Trust Your Case To Just Any Attorney. 

We all have made a mistake at some point in our life. But when you are charged with a crime, choosing a lawyer who meets your needs can be the best decision you make.

When facing a serious criminal charge, you need a lawyer who knows what they are doing, one with the skill to protect your rights and keep you out of jail.

I have significant experience with jury trials, plea deals and acquittals, and I am very familiar with the court rules, judges and prosecutors. I know the law and have successfully defended against charges of serious crimes. Let me help you.

I cannot thank Chelsea enough for being a phenomenal attorney and human. Her skills and determination not only helped me get through a very difficult time, but also resulted in having my case dismissed. Watching her in the courtroom defend me was nothing short of incredible. Her skills are second to none. She used caselaw and a clearly well developed argument to defend our position in my case. She responded promptly to any concerns and kept me updated throughout the process. I would recommend Chelsea to defend you or your loved ones any day.

Entering a courtroom takes courage. As Maya Angelou once said, “Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”

About Me, Chelsea Nicholson

Criminal defense is an often male-dominated field, but some clients would prefer to have a female lawyer in their corner. I have proven to have the skill and experience needed to defend against the most serious criminal charges.

I have earned the respect of many colleagues across Nashville and a reputation in the courtroom as an attorney willing to fight for my clients’ constitutional rights.
