Cynthia Sherwood for the win!
I am extremely satisfied with the way that Sherwood Boutique Litigation handled my case. The entire team was very professional. My first meeting with Cynthia Sherwood went incredibly well. She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable through the entire process. I felt that she had my best interest at heart. I left the meeting feeling confident that I would be satisfied with the outcome of the case. In the courtroom, Cynthia handled herself like a veteran. Her years of experience were quite evident. After two days in court, we won my case and I couldn’t have been any happier. Hiring an attorney was an unexpected expense for me, but having the support of a competent legal team is worth the money spent. If you’re looking for a competent legal team that can get you the results you need, Sherwood Boutique Litigation is the way to go.

Cynthia and her firm save my life. They are really professional in domestic violence and immigration. I trust her 100%. Just take 10 days my domestic violence charge has been dismissed and ordered for expungement. She is also very professional in immigration, all my record is going to be expunged and will never affect my visa and immigration status. She has a very strong connection with the judge, D. A., and prosecutors, people on the court talked to her with great respect, this make things much easier to handle. ???? first choice!

Cynthia Sherwood is one if the most experienced criminal defense attorneys in Nashville, TN. She has been practicing in Nashville since graduating from Vanderbilt Law School almost 20 years ago.

When asked why she practices criminal defense, Ms Sherwood replied: "I feel a deep satisfaction from freeing my clients, both in the literal sense and figuratively from the mental burden of a criminal charge. I feel empathy for every client, and I cannot stand to lose."

That combination of empathy and competitiveness has proven to be quite powerful.

Her defense strategies have evolved to embody much more than the "normal" defenses. Cynthia excels at picking apart the prosecution’s case by using her vast knowledge of case law to find additional defenses and legal loopholes. Her favorite mantra is – “Whoever knows the facts best- wins!”

Having great relationships also helps. Over the past two decades, Cynthia has built invaluable relationships with judges, prosecutors and fellow attorneys. Her dedication to clients and performance in the courtroom has earned a rarefied kind of respect. If it comes to a trial, no one wants to be on her opposing side.

For the last 10 years Cynthia has owned and operated Sherwood Boutique Litigation, PLC or SBL. SBL is the physical manifestation of Cynthia's mantra. In every case the criminal attorneys at SBL vow to always know the facts better than the other side.

Q. In the state of Tn if charged with domestic assault do u have to serve a mandatory 30 days on first offence
A: No. There is no mandatory time on a domestic assault charge in Tennessee. This is a serious charge, however, with serious consequences, such as loss of the right to possess a weapon for the rest of your life in addition to the stigma of such a charge. You should hire an attorney immediately.
