High-Stakes Criminal Defense


When the stakes are high, you need someone who is focused and immensely capable.

Although The Law Firm of Lawanda Hodges primarily handles federal and state white collar crimes and internal investigations, Attorney Hodges occasionally lends her talents in certain matters where the stakes are particularly high.

Notably, of her eleven years as a prosecutor, she spent eight of those years as a senior assistant district attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, which is known for its demanding caseload and fast-paced environment. There, she continuously received promotions, making her very experienced in all types of crimes, ranging from drug trafficking to sex crimes to homicide. Even when assigned as a major case prosecutor handling exclusively murders, she tried to verdict over two dozen homicide, jury trials (i.e., jury selection, opening statement, and closing argument), earning her many awards, including that of Attorney of the Year.
