Lope Law | Criminal Defense

Knoxville Criminal Defense Attorney

At the law office of Montpelier Della-Rodolfa & Lope, P.C., we represent clients in Knoxville and throughout East Tennessee who are facing criminal charges. With decades of combined experience, our lawyers are able to provide clients with a realistic assessment of their situation, their options and the possible outcomes. We defend clients in a range of criminal cases, including:

Juvenile crime

We defend individuals in juvenile court who are facing charges such as shoplifting, vandalism, drunk driving, drug possession or violence crimes.

Domestic violence

Individuals who are convicted of domestic violence can face repercussions that extend far beyond their criminal records. An individual can lose his or her right to carry a firearm, which can result in having a security clearance revoked. For individuals who work at Y-12, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) or Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), that could leave them unable to work in their chosen professions.


A first-time drunk driving conviction can result in 48 hours of jail time, a one-year driver’s license suspension and fines. Each subsequent arrest carries increased penalties and fines. Our lawyers aggressively defend individuals, working to have charges reduced and punishments mitigated or dismissed.

Drug charges

We represent clients who are facing charges for possession of marijuana, opiates, meth and other drugs. We also work with clients who are facing other legal repercussions because of drug crimes, helping address issues with the Department of Children’s Services.
