Client Testimonials

"During our time of crisis, we spoke with many attorneys; some used scare tactics while others tried to judge our integrity. We got several mail solicitations. There are many attorneys, but there are very few experienced and professional attorneys like Mr. Vaughn. He took the time to speak with us, understand us, and finally got us through our time of crisis. The only good thing during our time of crisis was getting acquainted with Mr. Vaughn. His motto is true in reality...'He does not judge a person but defends him'. Would highly recommend Mr. Vaughn and the good people at his firm." – A.K. - Nashville, TN

"I would highly recommend Mr. Vaughn as the #1 Defense Attorney in Nashville. He has helped me out so much and I have great expectations that he would do the same for any new client. Because of my felony drug charges, I felt hopeless and now I get a new start in a new state with my wife. Thank you, Mr. Vaughn." – J.W. Nashville, TN

Robert Vaughn, Attorney and Assistant, Lisa Lee

"Very satisfied with Mr. Vaughn, who has represented me on criminal charges in both Seminole and Orange Counties" – James N., Orlando, FL

"I had never, ever been arrested in my life. Getting a DUI and Implied Consent charge while visiting in Nashville was the first time I had ever been on the "wrong side of the law". I did not live in Tennessee and didn't know where to turn. I found Mr. Vaughn on the internet and I would recommend him to anyone facing these problems. He did an excellent job for me. I felt so lucky to have found a lawyer I could trust with me living out of state. Thank you for all you did. I do not have a DUI on my record and that was my main fear." – T.S., Florida

"Robert Vaughn is the ONLY attorney to call if you or a family member is in trouble. He is an outstanding attorney who was there for us during our family member's desent into a nightmarish world of drug charges and manufacturing charges. If it were not for his expertise in representation, I am sure that our son would have gone to prison for a very long time. I cannot go into details but wish I could give an account of what he was able to do. Experience counts when you are hiring an attorney. We talked with several and hired the best. He was on our side all the way. Thank you, Robert." – Anonymous, Middle Tennessee

"My trial? Hung jury. I am home. Enough said. He is, in my opinion, the best criminal attorney in Tennessee." – M.S., Middle Tennessee
