Specialized experience in criminal law

Gone are the days when the lawyer who helped you write a will also defended you against criminal charges. Today, the law is highly specialized and criminal law has become extremely complex.

At Smith Law Group, we exclusively practise criminal law and offer complete criminal defence services. If you are under investigation or facing criminal charges you need a lawyer with significant experience in criminal law on your side defending you and protecting your rights. We can help you.
