An Aggressive Criminal Defender When It Matters Most

At the Brent B. Smith Law Firm, I understand what is at stake in your case. A conviction could be costly, possibly leading to jail time — and these consequences can significantly impact your family and your career. I am attorney Brent Smith, and I work with you to help you understand the nuances of your case, so we can find the best path forward for your future.

Located in Asheville, my firm has represented many individuals in North Carolina in a variety of criminal cases including:

  • DWI/DUIs
  • Marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin and other drug offenses
  • Traffic violations
  • Domestic violence
  • Child abuse
  • Assault
  • Arson

No matter what crime you have been charged with, I aim to gather all the details and offer personalized solutions for your situation. You need not only a lawyer, but a compassionate advocate to fight for your rights. That is why I spend significant time with every client, to learn about their case and their goals so I can provide the highest-quality representation.

You Deserve Fair Treatment — I Will Fight By Your Side

When you are charged with a crime, the system may seem out to get you. Prosecutors have virtually limitless resources at their disposal. You need a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who is not afraid to stand up and fight for your rights.

At the Brent B. Smith Law Firm, I stand by every person's right to fair treatment under the law. I put my extensive knowledge of criminal law to work to protect you throughout your case and provide an aggressive defense on your behalf. And when the justice system seems overwhelming, I work to simplify the legal process and help you understand all your options.

Practicing In North Carolina State Court And Cherokee Tribal Court

While many areas of the law overlap, the legal systems for North Carolina and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians are quite different. If you are accused of a crime under Cherokee tribal law, it may have more severe consequences than under North Carolina state law, or vice versa. Having a dependable lawyer who understands both systems of law can be invaluable to your case.

I have tried cases in both the State Court and Cherokee Tribal Court on behalf of people across Western North Carolina. With a free consultation, I can evaluate your case and help determine the best path forward for your situation. Call 828-575-0296 today or email me to set up an appointment.
