What makes C&P different? Our clients answer for us. Three years straight, they've made us the highest rated law firm in Cookeville. We are set apart as the only Cookeville Law Firm with a former Circuit/Criminal Court Judge, former Chief Deputy Prosecutor, and wins at the Supreme Court, Federal District Courts, Appellate Courts, as well as numerous serious felony jury trial acquittals. We have the experience and victories to back up our high ratings.

We would love to talk with you about our track record on prior cases like yours. When interviewing attorneys, ask how their experience and success compare to the accomplishments of the Crabtree & Patterson Law Firm.

Frequently asked questions

How do I set up a consultation?

When you call or email, Seth's legal assistant Shana will speak with you about the general details of your case. Then, if you wish, she'll schedule a time for you to speak with or meet Seth to discuss your options and set up representation.

What type of cases do you accept?

We focus our practice 100% on Criminal Defense. This includes all manner of criminal charges including DUI, Drug Charges (simple possession and felony), Theft, Assault, Traffic Offenses, etc.

Do you accept payment plans?

Amount of payment and method of payment will vary depending on the facts of your case. However, we know no one plans financially for being accused of a crime, so we have worked with clients to arrange payment plans under certain circumstances.

What type of punishment am I facing?

The nature of your charge and extent of criminal background will determine the type of punishment you could receive if convicted of the alleged offense. Remember, there are many defenses and alternatives available in most situations, but here is a brief overview of potential criminal punishments based on offense type: Misdemeanor: Sentence up to 11 months and 29 days; fine up to $2,500 E Felony: Sentence between 1-6 years; fine up to $3,000 D Felony: Sentence between 2-12 years; fine up to $5,000 C Felony: Sentence between 3-15 years; fine up to $10,000 B Felony: Sentence between 8-30 years; fine up to $25,000 A Felony: Sentence between 15-60 years; fine up to $50,000
