Attorney Theo Sereebutra

Former Prosecutor Backed by Experience on Both Sides of the Courtroom

His Former Role as a Prosecutor

Prior to moving into criminal defense, Attorney Sereebutra workedas a prosecutor, handling a broad range of criminal offenses ranging from misdemeanor DUI cases to murder trials. Today, he uses his "insider" knowledge to defend his clients, allowing him to negotiate reduced penalties and sentences for his clients facing serious criminal charges. Additionally, he has represented clients at numerous probation revocation hearings, juvenile trials, bond hearings, and he has litigated countless bench trials.

Attorney Sereebutra has a substantial amount of experience in complex pre-trial motions where he challenged illegal searches and seizures that were conducted by law enforcement. He has also handled a large number of criminal appeals, many of which he successfully argued cases before the Georgia Court of Appeals.

After prosecuting criminal cases for approximately 7 years, Attorney Sereebutra realized his passion for defending the rights of the criminally accused. He eventually went into private practice where he co-founded the law firm of Henrickson & Sereebutra.

5 / 5 stars
Theo Sereebutra represented my grandson in a very complicated DUI case. He was very devoted to getting him the best deal in court and was successful in doing so. We could not have done this without him. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a very caring and experienced attorney. Thank you, Theo.
