Tennessee has one of the biggest drug seizure points in the United States. There is a large checkpoint on I-40, at which people are pulled over and their cars are impounded. We can work to reclaim your car. We can investigate the arrest to determine if the police had probable cause to pull over the vehicle and file a motion to suppress, if appropriate.
