Experience is vital when one faces criminal charges. Gregory D. Smith has represented thousands of defendants in both state and federal courts at all stages of trial. In 1997, Mr. Smith took the case of State v. Emmanual (a/k/a Batman) Trotter to a jury. There were approximately thirteen state “eyewitnesses” and no proof on the defense side. The jury found Mr. Trotter not guilty. That case is the only full-blown acquittal of a murder case in Clarksville, Tennessee in over ten years.
Man Found Innocent
Mr. Smith has over ten (10) years of experience representing clients in federal criminal cases.
Distinguished Service Recognition
Perhaps the clearest example of how experience plays into the area of criminal law is that the trial teams of two former Governors, Tennessee’s Ray Blanton and Alabama’s Guy Hunt, sought advice from Mr. Smith in the areas of criminal law and appellate procedure.
In addition, numerous attorneys have used Gregory D. Smith for professional consultation in their own trials.
