Criminal Defense That Is Smart, Tough And Practical

I have earned a reputation for being affordable, effective in the courtroom and accessible to my clients in both Craven and Pamlico counties.

When you call my office, you are more likely to speak to me directly than to speak to a member of my staff. I take the time to get to know you and your situation you as well as investigating the details of your case. We then work together to craft a strategy that resolves your criminal charges your way.

Defense Against A Wide Variety Of Criminal Charges

Mine is the firm to call for representation against all manner of criminal charges and related matters, including:

  • Drunk driving (DWI)
  • Traffic tickets
  • Failure to appear
  • Driving while license revoked
  • Drug offenses
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Theft and vandalism
  • Obtaining property by false pretenses
  • Felony larceny
  • Fraud and embezzlement
  • Other felonies and misdemeanors
  • Expungements

Fighting DWI Charges And Traffic Tickets

Whether you've been accused of drunk driving or a lesser offense like speeding, the potential consequences are serious. Losing your license or your vehicle may cost you your job. At the very least, DWI convictions and traffic citations can lead to higher insurance premiums. In many cases, a poorly handled DWI charge can result in jail time and steep fines. Therefore, it is important to contest any driving-related issue with the help of an experienced lawyer.

A Sensible, Compassionate Approach To Drug Charges

Drug charges are very often tied to addiction, which is why traditional prosecution and punishment are not effective. A large part of my criminal defense work includes finding drug rehab facilities for defendants struggling with substance abuse. This could include:

  • Requesting bond modifications and bond reductions releasing inmates to attend rehab
  • Continuing court dates to give clients time to complete rehab
  • Negotiating probation pleas that release defendants into rehab programs

We will discuss all of your options and choose the course of action that best meets your needs during your free consultation.

Clear Your Record Through Expungement

In some cases, you can petition the court to clear convictions and arrests from your record through the process of expungement. Clearing your criminal record can open doors to employment and education. I am one of a handful of attorneys in the area offering expungement assistance.
