Summary

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, noone 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.
