Why I Practice Criminal Defense Law

“I chose to practice criminal defense law because I care deeply about people. Everyone, regardless of circumstances, deserves fair and compassionate treatment. District attorneys and police put up a strong fight for convictions, and our justice system inherently leans towards the prosecution. That’s why it’s crucial to have someone on your side, rebalancing the scales of justice.

My role goes beyond providing a vigorous defense; it’s about ensuring that your rights are respected. In a system that often appears designed to keep defendants voiceless, I’m here to be a voice for my clients. Behind every case is a unique individual with a story, and it’s my duty to tell that story with care and determination.

As your attorney, I’m here to stand by you, fight for your rights, and hold the justice system to its promise of fairness. Thank you for considering me as your advocate.”

Carla Grebert, a Tennessee native, earned her degree in law from Nashville School of Law, after many years of teaching Spanish at the University of Tennessee.

After law school, she clerked for the late Judge Richard Dinkins and then for Judge Kenny Armstrong at the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

Carla developed an interest in criminal law while interning in the Domestic Violence unit of the Nashville District Attorney’s Office during law school.  During that time, she also participated in the Habitat for Humanity wills clinic where she drafted wills for families in that program.

She believes in using her abilities to support the community, so she has given her time and expertise to pro bono efforts such as the Music City Community Court Expungement Clinic and Tennessee Free Legal Answers, as well as representing indigent individuals charged with crimes.

In her free time, Carla enjoys traveling with her husband, relaxing with her cats, and growing vegetables in her backyard garden.


You Matter

I zealously represent my clients because I believe every person is deserving of dignity and fairness and that your worst moment does not define you.”
