Attorney Butterfield’s Legal Career
In The State of Georgia

Attorney Butterfield began his legal career in the State of Georgia as an Assistant Public Defender with the Fulton County Office of the Public Defender. By the time he left, he was a Senior Staff attorney. During his tenure there he represented clients charged with felonies, and delinquent acts in both county and juvenile courts throughout Fulton County. Attorney Butterfield has extensive experience in the area of criminal law and he understands the intricate details of the criminal justice system. Since establishing his law firm, he has expanded his practice to include the representation of clients charged in both state and federal courts throughout the entire state of Georgia, including Fulton, Dekalb, Cobb, Douglas, Gwinnett, Rockdale, Spalding, Cherokee, Tift and Bibb counties. He also practices at the appellate level by representing clients in state criminal appeals.

Attorney Butterfield is a very seasoned and experienced trial attorney. He absolutely loves all aspects of trial from jury selection to jury verdict. Attorney Butterfield is a criminal defense expert and he has handled thousands of criminal cases, both felony and misdemeanor, since 1997, and he has handled nearly every type of criminal case, including double murder, rape, armed robbery, theft by shoplifting, theft by taking, theft by conversion, false statements, dui, speeding, trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana (misdemeanor and felony, and with intent to distribute), child molestation, child pornography and exploitation, pimping, identity theft, identity fraud, financial transaction card fraud, and many others.

The ability to try a case before a jury has made Mr. Butterfield a formidable opponent against insurance companies in his personal injury cases. Many lawyers are afraid to go to trial and they settle cases for amounts that are far less than true case value. They are afraid of the courtroom because they do not know what to do once there. Mr. Butterfield loves nothing more than standing before a jury and telling his client’s story. He becomes familiar with the cases by reading every document, going to the scene, taking photographs, interviewing witnesses, and preparing for battles to be fought in court. Mr. Butterfield attempts to learn “every scale on the hide of the fish.” This is the type of work ethic that separates Mr. Butterfield from the typical, garden variety attorney. Mr. Butterfield understands that you MUST be dedicated, diligent, and determined to obtain satisfactory results.

Mr. Butterfield has been identified as a “Rising Star” in criminal defense by Super Lawyers Magazine–an honor limited to criminal defense attorneys who are 40 years old or younger.
