Experienced Handling Of Felony And Misdemeanor Cases

Whether you are facing a felony or misdemeanor, you need to take the charges seriously. Even the smallest of crimes can result in significant fines and jail time. Also, having an arrest on your record could lead to damage to your personal and professional reputation.

As a criminal defense attorney who fights for everyone he represents, I take the necessary steps to reduce or eliminate all consequences that come about due to criminal charges. I represent North Carolina residents regarding violent crimes, traffic issues, drunk driving charges, sex crimes, property crimes, juvenile crimes and drug offenses. Though I know how to negotiate with prosecuting attorneys, I am always prepared to take your case to court when necessary.

Having A Compassionate Advocate On Your Side

Many of the individuals I represent have never been in trouble with the law before. A criminal prosecution can be an extremely intimidating experience. For someone facing a conviction, it may be unclear who to listen to and what you should say to arresting officers and district attorneys.

As a seasoned lawyer, I pursue the sort of legal strategy that is best for you. I will work hard for you and pay close attention to your case. Before taking action on your case, I take the time to get to know your situation. I will make certain you understand the criminal process, and guide you through what I feel is necessary in your defense.

I will explain to you all of the consequences in entering a guilty plea. Pleading guilty is often not the best route for avoiding penalties. Though negotiating a plea may in some circumstances be the best route, I only recommend doing this when absolutely necessary. Whether through negotiation or trial, my goal is to clear your name of any criminal charges.
