If you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony in the Greensboro area, it does not necessarily mean that you will be convicted or that you will have a criminal record. However, it does mean that you’ll need legal help – immediately – from an experienced Greensboro criminal attorney.
A conviction for any felony or misdemeanor can threaten your freedom and resources and make your life difficult for years to come. Whether you are entirely innocent or clearly guilty, you must be represented by an attorney who will bring your case to its best possible conclusion.
Attorney J. Scott Smith is a Greensboro defense lawyer who has substantial criminal defense experience, and with help from the LAWSMITH legal team, he will fight aggressively for justice on your behalf. Attorney J. Scott Smith has practiced criminal law in this state since 2007.
AT LAWSMITH, WHAT CRIMINAL CASES DO WE HANDLE?

- Drug crimes including the possession, sale, and trafficking of illegal drugs

HERE’S HOW WE DEFEND CLIENTS AGAINST CRIMINAL CHARGES
If you are innocent of the charge against you, a Greensboro criminal attorney at LAWSMITH will fight aggressively for your freedom. When we develop a defense strategy for a criminal defendant, we first seek to have the charge that’s been filed against you dropped or dismissed.
If that’s not possible, we may take your case to trial and ask the jurors to return a not guilty verdict. But in some cases, the state’s evidence will be overwhelming, and a criminal conviction is certain. In these cases, we will seek leniency and reduced or alternative sentencing.
WHY IS A CRIMINAL ATTORNEY’S HELP SO IMPERATIVE?
You shouldn’t even think about acting as your own lawyer. That was possible in the past, but today, North Carolina criminal law is excessively difficult and exceedingly complex. You must have a defense lawyer who can successfully guide you through the legal process.
We will review the state’s case against you, try to find a weakness or mistake in that case, and then take advantage of that mistake or weakness on your behalf. We’ll fight hard to protect your rights, and we will make sure that you are treated fairly and justly at every stage of the process.
