Criminal Defense Attorney Nathan Earwood Sylva North Carolina

Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Serving Counties; Cherokee, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, Swain, Graham, Clay and Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians Tribal Court

Nathan has represented individuals accused of criminal offenses ranging from minor speeding tickets to capital murder since 2003. Although the consequences and strategies differ in each case, his approach remains the same. In order for the client-lawyer relationship to be successful, there must actually be a relationship. It must be a relationship where the client feels comfortable and confident that their lawyer truly cares about their case. Secondly, there is no substitute for preparation. There is no consistent way for an attorney to reach the best possible result unless he takes the time and steps necessary to be fully prepared in each and every case. Finally, an attorney must be open to negotiating, but willing and able to aggressively litigate for his client. Nathan uses this approach to reach the best possible result for his clients.

My father received a speeding ticket (75 in a 60) while vacationing in North Carolina. As residents of Michigan, that left my parents a bit challenged on the best way to resolve this without jacking up their insurance rates. I contacted Mr. Earwood's office a few days ahead of my dad's court date, and despite the last-minute need, his staff was friendly, accommodating and professional. They explained my dad's options and made the process super-easy. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for assistance with the same type of legal needs. Well done!read more

Received a speeding citation from a state trooper in Macon County. I was going way over speed limit which I didn't remember what it was as I had been on road all day and was in an area I had never been thru on my way home to Atlanta. Found Mr Earwood almost by random accident and procured his services. He attended court on my behalf and I was more than pleased. I did not expect such a good outcome. Thank you more

I live in Pennsylvania and while traveling I did get a speeding ticket in North Carolina which I was going 15 miles over the speed limit which is an automatic suspension within that state, I was unable to really go to court in which they insisted I be there or hire a attorney so this is when I hired the services of Nathan Earwood. His professionalism and quick settlement I was very impressed with his work and he even reduced my charge to a much lesser speed and yes he was a great benefit to my case and I do thank him. I would highly recommend Mr. Earwood to take care of your legal more

Mr. Earwood is very knowledgeable and dedicated when it comes to whatever legal issues may arise in your life. He gave me piece of mind when my moral and positive outlook were in shambles over a stupid mistake I made. He helped get it behind me for good and enabled me to drop the heavy burden off my back and walk out of court with my head held high! I highly recommend if you find yourself under similar more

Very quick and easy to take care of a speeding ticket that I received in N.C. So much easier and cheaper to let Mr. Earwood handle it than taking another trip from Ga. to N.C. Very pleased with the outcome!

Nathan and his team took care of my ticket with late notice, and I was very pleased with their services! Nathan was able to take care of my situation, even with me being out of town and with less than 4 days notice. I would recommend his service and or at least a call to his office to see what he can do for more

I received a speeding ticket - going 76 in a 55 zone. I was able to hire, communicate and pay for Mr Earwood completely online which I love. He was able to reduce my sentence to 60 in a 55 and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Mr. Earwood and his team were very straight-forward and honest with my case. A group of my friends and myself actually got tickets on a trip to North Carolina that we believed were not warranted and hired Nathan and his team. The tickets were reduced to non-moving violations and saved us from getting points on our licenses. Ryan, Nathan, and everyone else I dealt with there are top notch. Thank more

I used Mr. Earwood's firm to represent me at Traffic Court so that I didn't have to travel 8+ hours to and from. His staff was professional and responsive, and Mr. Earwood was able to get my violation reduced to one that should not affect my driving record. Time and money saver!

Mr. Earwood has handled two speeding tickets for me and each time I have been incredibly pleased with the result. They made it much less stressful for me and reduced my speed significantly both times. I always refer friends to this firm! Great service and knowledagble people!

Great customer service with great results! Mr. Earwood and his team let me know ahead of time they would be able to help myself, my father, brother, and a friend who all recieved the same ticket for "exceeding the posted speed." It was dropped to a non moving violation with no points on my license. Sure enough they were correct and got the job done! Thank you for your help! Highly more

I was a little nervous about leaving tying someone take care of a citation for me that I had never met! Or had known anything about But it would have cost me a few days off work on top of the cost of lawyer and or the citation! Turns out he did a a good job and and got it down to something o could live with! And it didn’t cost an arm and leg! So thank you Mr Erwin! Your service pleased me! I hope I never need you again! But I will pass your number along to my co workers!read more

I am very happy I chose Mr. Nathan Earwood to represent me in court over a speeding ticket I got while out of town. He got the job done just as his secretary said he could. Saved my driving record and insurance, and 400 miles round trip to the court house. Awesome Attorney! Thank you!
