JASON W. SWINDLE, SR.
S WINDLE LAW GROUP, P.C.
310 Tanner Street
Carrollton, GA 30117
During my many years of criminal trial practice, I have handled
over 5,000 criminal cases. These cases range from simple
traffic tickets to capital felony cases. A criminal defense attorney
must strictly adhere to the teachings in “The Art of War” to be
successful. A criminal defense attorney must try cases before
judges and juries, handle negotiated pleas, blind pleas, and
motion hearings, and represent convicted men and women on
appeal in the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme
Court. In my practice, I vigorously represent people charged with
traffic tickets, DUIs, DWIs, family violence cases, misdemeanors,
felonies, violent crimes, sexual crimes, probation violations,
warrant applications, and drug offenses. I have strived to
perform these tasks with honor, integrity, and as a gentleman.
