Our Criminal Defense Practice

We represent individuals in all types of criminal law cases, including:

Violent felonies: We handle all types of murder, homicide and manslaughter cases. These are the most serious charges a person can be accused of and you need someone with trial experience to help build an effective defense.

Drug charges: Even a misdemeanor drug possession charge can have a negative impact on all areas of your life. We will work hard to get your charges reduced or dismissed and to limit the potential consequences.

Criminal sexual allegations: Whether you have been accused of sexual assault, solicitation of a minor or possessing child pornography, we will help you build a strong defense designed to protect your reputation and your future.

Domestic and child abuse: Accusations of domestic violence or child abuse can mean an almost instant punishment in the form of a restraining order, as well as more serious consequences further down the line. These cases do not always involve husband and wife, or parent and child, but may include anyone who is in a personal relationship with the alleged victim. Regardless of your personal circumstances, we will challenge all of the evidence against you.

Assault charges: Assault and/or battery accusations are charged at different levels, and may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances. We work hard to achieve lesser charges or get your case dismissed altogether.

Drunk driving: DWI/DUI charges can happen to anyone. We can help explain the drunk driving laws in North Carolina, what they mean for your case and represent you in your driver’s license suspension hearing.

Traffic citations: If you were arrested or cited for speeding or rolling through a stop sign, you might not think it’s a big deal. However, if you are arrested or ticketed again in the future, the consequences may be severe. We will work hard to minimize the impact on your driving record and help you to avoid significant insurance increases

Embezzlement: Fraud, embezzlement and other white collar criminal charges are taken much more seriously than they once were. It is important to get out in front of these types of allegations. Even if you haven’t been charged with a crime, but are under investigation or are concerned that you may face charges in the future, it is important to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney.
