Defense Lawyers in Cherokee County

Burns Smith Law represents clients in north Georgia for DUI, misdemeanor, felony charges including hearings, plea negotiation, trial representation, post-conviction appeals.

An arrest is not a conviction, however; not hiring a top defense lawyer will probably assure you are convicted of whatever charges you face. If you're on this website, you probably don't want to be convicted and deal with a lifetime of issues that will follow. We applaud you for coming to our website, and encourage you to follow through with a call to our law firm.

What you do, or do not do, immediately following an arrest can affect your case and our ability to help you. Firstly, invoke your rights and do not speak with law enforcement, prosecutors about your case. In fact, be very tight lipped and try to not discuss your situation with family, friends, co-workers, or anyone else except your defense lawyer.

Client Reviews

Burns Smith Law represented me in Forsyth County. My case was very complex because my charges were for two different counties, and I lived 3 hours away. She went above and beyond after I was sentenced too make sure my probation could either be transferred or that I would be able too call in and check in monthly.
