A criminal conviction is a serious matter that requires an experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight for your rights. Our firm, located in Cary, North Carolina, defends people against misdemeanor and felony charges. We practice in state courts throughout North Carolina. Some of the charges we defend our clients against include:
Examples of these crimes include charges of assault, assault with a deadly weapon, battery, aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, and disorderly conduct. Many of our clients are involved in a domestic disturbance and are arrested based simply on the fact that police will usually be forced to arrest someone if there is the smallest sign of a scrape to one of the people involved.
A drug crime includes a charge for possession, sale, distribution, manufacture, and cultivation of drugs.
Domestic Violence and Protection Orders
Another major area of our criminal defense practice includes defending people charged with domestic violence. You may face a protection order in a domestic violence case. A restraining order may also prevent you from contacting your spouse, children, or going to your home. If you violate a restraining or protection order, you will face additional criminal charges. We defend people facing accusations of sexual abuse and domestic violence in divorce and custody battles.
Our criminal defense attorney will also counsel people about the expungement process. We help people remove past convictions from their record that hinders their employment, housing, and lifestyle opportunities.
