Reviews of Nashville Criminal Attorney Bernie McEvoy

Bernie is very professional and informative. I unfortunately found my self in a little bit of trouble when I first moved to Nashville, he talked me through everything and made sure I was provided the best outcome. The first few lawyers I talked to acted like they were selling a car.. it was “this is your sentence” with out giving me a chance to even speak on my behalf. Bernie was the only one who let me explain my side and trusted what I had to say! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.

I would highly recommend Mr. McEvoy if you are in need of a criminal defense attorney. He was prompt and efficient in communicating and knowledgeable regarding our legal issue. Mr. McEvoy achieved a successful outcome. Also, his fees are reasonable compared to other attorneys.

We cannot say enough good things about Bernie McEvoy. He came highly recommended from an attorney friend of mine - and he met and exceeded those expectations. We had no idea how to navigate the waters of the legal system. Mr. McEvoy walked us through the different scenarios and advised us at every turn. He was even able to show up with about 12 hours notice when we had an urgent need at a court date. He has a very professional and kind demeanor and is pleasant to work with. He sincerely cared about our family's situation. The outcome was better than our expected best case scenario. I would recommend Bernie to anyone.

First encounter with law enforcement. Was not arrested, and nothing major, but the circumstances were enough to scare me to death. Contacted many attorneys immediately and as soon as I spoke with Bernie, I hired him. He was careful and diligent and always available to speak. He walked me through the entire process and we reached a favorable outcome that I don't think I would have reached without his representation. I highly, highly recommend Bernie to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney. He was even respectful and understanding enough of my situation that he worked out a payment plan with me and I am so grateful for that.

Bernie is a great lawyer, and the only choice you should make if you get into a situation with the law where you are unfamiliar. He listened to what happened, and even when I thought it was black and white and I had no hope, he explained what he could do and process, and made me feel very comfortable. He is knowledgeable, and got me a better outcome than I could have ever expected. I was in a situation where I thought I had screwed my life up and Bernie was able to get me into a situation where I could get back on track and put everything behind me. I wouldn't recommend any other lawyer if you are accused of driving under the influence.

Bernie was recommended to us by a good family friend, who spoke very highly of him and the service that he provided their family. We had a false assault charge made against my husband by someone visiting from out of state. Bernie was extremely professional, attentive and friendly. He assessed our situation and explained all of our options and left the decision up to us. Once we made our decision, he created a plan of attack. Bernie was timely and responsive to our questions and concerns, giving us a great sense of calm, which needless to say was much appreciated. In the end truth prevailed and all charges were dropped. We are so grateful to Bernie for his help, it was truly a pleasure to have him represent us, he is a genuine, kind man of integrity. I am so glad that he was recommended and we would recommend him to anyone in need of a attorney.

We worked with Bernie over the course of about a year. We were in an unfamiliar legal situation and needed guidance to avoid some unpleasant consequences. Bernie was able to expertly guide us through the details and circumstances and he was able to secure an even better outcome than what we had prepared for. I would highly recommend Bernie for his skills and capabilities.

Howard G.


Bernie was a tremendous asset in assisting me with my case. He was very professional and honest throughout the process and went over and beyond to make sure I was not wrongfully accused of any wrong doing.

Jake V.


I was charged with very serious and life changing charges. The whole process took two and a half years, resulting in a jury trial. He did an excellent job presenting a defense for my case. I was charged with 9 felonies and was only convicted of 1 felony and 1 misdemeanor. Mr. McEvoy was there and guiding me through the entire time. There were many hearings throughout the process. He listened to my concerns and was a calming influence during these difficult times. He went above and beyond in investing time and his personal resources to work toward the best possible outcome.

I believe that Mr. McEvoy was a Godsend to me and my family during these very trying times. I would most certainly recommend Mr. McEvoy to everyone who needs an excellent Defense Attorney.

Upon recommendation of another attorney who said Bernie was the smartest criminal lawyer in Tennessee, I employed Bernie 2 years ago to represent my grandson, who was in very serious trouble. Due to Bernie’s experience and tenacity, my grandson is now a productive member of society and his record remains unblemished.

This was my first offense. I was very pleased with my result. To me keeping my license was my number one priority because I drive for a living. I would highly recommend him. I know everyone’s case may differ but I would still trust him in any situation. There aren’t many lawyers that have worked on both sides of the law prosecuting and defendant. I talked to a few other lawyers and they seemed to be too overzealous for me. He was calm and relaxed with confidence that spoke for itself. Sure enough he got the job done. Also do not be scared if nothing gets resolved on your first court date. The odds were highly stacked against me. Thank you Mr Bernie McEvoy

Client


Mr. McEvoy was so very attentive to my situation. His concern for my well-being as a person and client made it obvious I would receive his un-divided attention and that my case would be fought with every tool “in his box.”

I was looking at serving several years incarceration and he was able to negotiate a plea which I readily accepted.

Thank-you Mr. McEvoy! You turned my life around both as an attorney but mainly as a man showing compassion for me as a person first, then as a client!!

I owe you my life!!!!

Hailey


Mr. McEvoy was awesome. It was my first time dealing with the court system on a criminal charge. I was scared and thought my life was over. Mr.McEvoy was very calm he let me know all options available to me. He kept me calm constantly reassuring me everything would be ok. My case went to a bench trial I was so scared, he did great in cross examining the witnesses the state had against me. He always returned my calls/emails promptly. After a long 6 months process my case was dismissed!! Mr.McEvoy even filed the paper work to expunge my record!! I would recommend him to anyone.

Chasit C.
