JOHN RIFE-BARTOW COUNTY CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER

The Bartow County Courthouse is located in the city of Cartersville. It is comprised of 4 court systems and a District Attorney’s Office.

Most felony and misdemeanor cases are handled in the Superior Court and are prosecuted by the District Attorney, Rosemary Greene or one of her deputy district attorneys. We at The Rife Law Firm have tried numerous felony and misdemeanor cases in Bartow County against Mrs. Greene and her staff. They are tough and organized and you need a lawyer on your side that is not only experienced, but respected as well.

Bartow County has four Superior Court judges who hear cases in both Bartow and Gordon Counties, and they have proven time and again that although they will free someone wrongfully accused, they can also be very stiff on penalties if you are convicted.

The Bartow County Sheriff’s Office and the Cartersville Police, are well funded and trained to convict you.

The other courts in Bartow County are the Probate Court, which hears traffic matters, Magistrate Court that hears first appearances and probable cause for Misdemeanors and Felonies, and a Juvenile Court that hears matters for persons under 16.

Rife Law Firm has experience in all of these courts and is well known in both Bartow and Gordon Counties.  If you have a criminal case, traffic case, DUI or Juvenile matter and need a good defense, call us today.
