Criminal Defense/DUI is all I do.  Being a criminal defense attorney is a blessing from God.  Every day, I am able to do what I love;  helping other people who are in trouble.   Seeing the sigh of relief on a mother's face who has been worried about her son for months pierces the core of my passion.  

I am the Senior Partner at Swindle Law Group.  I also lead the Criminal Defense Division.  Our team does not rest until we are convinced that we have achieved the best possible result for our client.  We practice law and function as a firm primarily based on the military treatise, Art of War.

 

I am the chairman and president of the West Georgia Autism Foundation.  www.wgaautism.com.

I am very politically active; currently serving on Casey Cagle's campaign committee.

When I swore to protect and defend the Constitution, I took that oath seriously.  I am a protector of the entire docuemt; not just certain parts.  

As a defender of the 2nd Amendment, I frequently discuss gun related issues on various media outlets; NRANews, Atlanta Stations, OANN, etc.

In 2017, Gov. Nathan Deal appointed me to the board of directors for the Sexual Offenders Registration Review Board.  The Board officially classifies sex offenders in Georgia to protect our community.

I serve on the Board of Governors for the State Bar of Georgia.  The BOG serves as the governing body of the State Bar.  

I enjoy big game hunting, golf, gardening, and hanging out with my boys; Jason Jr "Jake" (12) and Reagan (7).

The Best Lawyer I Have Ever Used, He Treats His Clients Like Family.
Jason and his staff were so professional, kind and comforting. No one wants to have a daughter or son to make poor choices. Jason went out of his way and when it was all over I really thought I should pay him more money because he never quit trying to get the best outcome for my child. I highly recommend him and as a christian I really believe that God put him in our path way. He is now a friend and I would give him my highest recommendation. Jason really believes that this is more than a job it is a calling, he really does want to help. I watched him interact with the other clients, each one you could tell that he treated them like a family member. Hopefully you will never need a criminal lawyer but if you do chose him, you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Attorney! Highly recommended!
I met with Jason and his team regarding my case and decided to go with his firm. First off I must say that everyone in his office was always pleasant and answered any questions I had. They were always very responsive. Jason was able to get the jail time off the table and got me the best outcome for what I was facing. I will forever be grateful for Jason and his team. Although I hope I will never need his services again, I would highly recommend him for anyone else that needs an Excellent criminals defense attorney.

Glorious Law Firm
I can’t say enough Great things about The Swindle law firm. I have never met a more “real”, dedicated, and determined group of able professionals. You actually DO matter to them. They are approachable and sincere. We were absolutely blown away by the true, pure, and balanced GRIT. We were given more knowledge as to our rights, were told exactly how this works, given steps to prepare ourselves, shown our options, received copies of everything pertaining to our case, and communicated with throughout the process. One thing that I didn’t expect to receive was a blessing of emotional support and even guidance!!! Its not like with other lawyers I’ve experienced. Its quite refreshing and elevating to know that there are still Loyal and truly just good hearted people in this world. Especially in the justice system!!! They don’t treat you as a quick case number rolling through a revolving door. When you hire this group, you are engaging in what I believe would be the wisest decision you could make when seeking someone in their profession. They are relate able and accessible at all times. Our lives are now secure because we chose The Swindle Group!!

Excellent Firm and 100 % Recommended !!!
Jason Swindle was sincere, very personable and dedicated. He had all the answers to my questions, and he gave me the reassurance I needed without the “fluff”. He was straight to the point, but he also is sincere in his concern for his clients’ emotional well-being for what has happened to or by his client. It’s obvious he knows that his clients are individuals therefore each client’s needs are different, and that to some going through a criminal accusation can be down right earth shaking and the outcome can be forever life changing. What I really respect as part of Mr. Swindle’s advice Is the fact that he cares enough that he want you to commit to some of his recommendations for your own emotional well-being while he works on the legal side of things. I had consulted with 5 other attorneys and not one of them even touched on the basic inquiry of .....” How are YOU truly doing/feeling?”, And then definitely not any input on what they might see from the outside looking in and give heartfelt, sincere recommendations as Mr. Swindle did. I also had the pleasure of working with his paralegal, Holly Reece. She promptly returned every phone call, every email and every text, and she always had and still has the answers to my questions.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Having practiced Criminal Law for more than 30 years, I sometimes worry that there are not enough young lawyers ready to take up the fight to protect the rights of our citizenry in the criminal courts. Jason Swindle however is a bright aggressive young Criminal Defense lawyer who through my association with him helps to allay those fears. He is an advocate of the highest integrity with the skills of a much more seasoned trial attorney in the courtroom. He is relentless in his efforts to assist his clients while at the same time commanding the respect of his fellow lawyers, the prosecution and the Judges before whom he practices. I am proud every time I get the opportunity to work with him and value his friendship in the legal community. I would highly recommend this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Jason is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. This firm refers EVERYONE who calls us to Jason. He has the highest character,he can handle the most difficult felonies and he treats misdemeanor clients with the same respect and attention to detail that he gives to larger cases. I have NEVER had anything but positive feedback from the dozens of clients we have referred to Jason."

Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"If I could sum-up Jason's lawyering skills in a few short words, they would read: dedicated, responsive, and extremely effective. I've known Jason for years. Although the courtroom's simply not for every lawyer, Jason is comfortable and effective in court. He has the ability to articulate himself and effectively advance his clients' interests on his feet when it matters. Judges and prosecutors like him and listen to him because he's honest and shoots straight. He is an excellent choice for anybody facing criminal charges, and I refer people to him without hesitation."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 13
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had the opportunity to sit as co-counsel with Mr. Swindle recently on a very complicated criminal case. It was a great experience for me to watch someone who has dedicated his career to perfecting his practice area. While many attorneys may dabble in becoming a "jack of all trades but master of none", Swindle has narrowed his focus to criminal defense and nothing more. It comes has no surprise, then, that his knowledge of criminal law is deep and thoughtful. He is certainly the attorney I would want to represent me or my family and I highly recommend him for any matter involving criminal defense."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 03
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"While working as an assistant public defender in Douglas County, I had the privilege of watching Jason handle some of the most serious and sensitive cases with precision and compassion. Jason was always prepared to match wits and intellect with the prosecutors and judges in an extremely difficult venue. It was obvious he put countless hours into his cases to ensure his clients were being protected and properly advised. Many times I was left speechless observing the positive results he was able to procure for his clients. If you are facing criminal accusations in the West Georgia area, then you should call Jason immediately. He is the go-to-guy in West Georgia!!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 01

"I endorse this lawyer. I've had the pleasure of knowing Jason professionally (and personally) for over a decade, and have observed his work in numerous felony cases. Jason is a superlative attorney.
