Our Attorneys Are Here
To Protect You

The criminal justice system is built to intimidate and punish the people caught up in it. Prosecutors are not impartial actors. They are likely to push for a maximum sentence. You should not expect any sympathy or support from anyone outside of your team.

At Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, our experienced criminal defense lawyers can help you navigate the criminal justice system. We will fight to protect you when facing a criminal conviction. Our attorneys are highly skilled. We combine the experience and resources of a large firm, with the personal service and individual attention of a smaller firm. You will always know that you are the top priority when working with us.
