Devin Hartness Smith devotes herself to both civil and criminal cases, with particular emphasis on environmental, business, and federal criminal litigation.  Her cases frequently involve sifting through thousands upon thousands of documents, finding a few key needles in the haystacks of evidence.  Quite often, the opposition in her cases has a lot of resources, and without someone as persistent as Devin, clients do not stand a fighting chance.

With her background in journalism, Devin knows how to write persuasively.  Her clients often are facing tough odds, and Devin’s ability to show a judge the key facts and law have helped level the playing field for her clients.

Devin’s contributions to several high profile victories led her to be named a 2014 Rising Star by the Daily Report, a statewide legal publication.

A native of Gwinnett County, Devin lives with her husband and two young children.
