James Will Beard Attorney

James Will Beard

Attorney At Law

After graduating from the Cumberland School of Law in 2003, I worked briefly for Beard and Beard Attorneys — the firm my father and uncle founded. After deciding I wanted to forge my own path, I set out to open the Law Office of James Will Beard, LLC. My practice is rooted in the enjoyment I get from being able to help others overcome their legal issues and struggles. The desire to make a difference is what drew me to practice criminal defense and personal injury law, as I aim to provide legal services to those who are in immediate crisis.

A strong defense is your greatest weapon

The best time to call an attorney after you've been arrested is the very first chance you get to use a phone. If you do foresee possible trouble, or you're currently weighing several different legal options, the best time to call is now! Never wait to secure strong legal representation for any case or situation.

If you're suspected of a crime and the police ask you to come in for questioning, do not speak with them alone. While this may seem obvious, detectives are trained to extract information by making you think you are helping your case by speaking with them. This couldn't be further from the truth. Demand your attorney to be present and remain silent until they arrive.

I've been representing individuals arrested and charged with various crimes for over 15 years. I have handled cases involving DUI, assault & battery, burglary, probation, weapons charges, theft, and drug-related crimes. Experience counts in criminal cases and you need a defense attorney that you can rely on for tough litigation and effective counsel.

Whether you're facing unpayable fines or jail time, I will approach your case with the passion and aggression it takes to fight for a favorable ruling or dismissal. Put my experience and tough litigation skills on your side today. Call my office to schedule a time to meet with me.

In Defense of your best interests

People turn to my firm with a broad range of legal issues, from criminal defense to personal injury cases. When you retain my services, I'll do my best to handle the preparation and filing of paperwork and provide representation during interviews, mediation, and all litigation proceedings.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I know the value of keeping an open line of communication and making sure you're updated on the progress of your case at every juncture. I provide services for individuals charged or arrested for theft, DUI, drug crimes, violent crimes, and any other felony or misdemeanor.

Aside from my criminal defense practice, I also handle many personal injury cases for a range of accidents, such as auto accidents, semi-truck accidents, slip and falls, and work-related injuries. If you have been injured, and someone else is to blame, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to fight for the highest compensation possible on your behalf.

My practice is known for strict attention to detail, quick responses to inquiries, and flexible appointment scheduling. It doesn't matter where you are or what your circumstances may be. I'd like to help. Reach out today!
