Defending Against Drug Possession and Trafficking Charges

Drug charges lead to either misdemeanor or felony prosecution. The level of charge often depends on the evidence that was gathered by the police and on the type and quantity of the drugs in question.

A Strong Defense is Necessary When Facing Drug Charges

The most important thing you can do when facing drug charges is to hire an experienced drug crimes defense attorney. Attorney  worked as an assistant public defender prior to opening our law office. He has literally handled thousands of client matters and brought hundreds of cases to verdict. Our lawyers know exactly what to prepare for your defense and what holes to look for in the prosecution’s case.

Whether you are a college student who was charged with possession of marijuana while on your college campus, or are an individual facing felony drug trafficking charges, we can help you. We will investigate all aspects of the police stop and search to see if the police performed an illegal search and seizure. When possible, we will seek to have the evidence thrown out due to improper police procedures or actions. If that is not possible, we will seek to minimize the charges or remove the charges from your record.

Keeping Your Record Clean Through First Offender Programs

A conviction for any drug crime can have serious consequences. This is even more true for college students, as a conviction for having even a small amount of drugs in your possession can keep you from getting financial aid in the future.

If this is your first offense, our lawyers will work with you and the courts to see if you are eligible for a first-offender program. If you are eligible, and if you complete the program as required, your record would remain clean.

Traffic Violations Defense Lawyer

Traffic violations carry serious consequences in North Carolina. Speeding tickets that are 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit or over 80 miles per hour can lead to a revocation of your driver’s license. Driving with a revoked license can lead to four months in jail. Even minor violations can lead to points added to your driving record and insurance, which can eventually lead to significant penalties if further violations occur and an increase in insurance premiums.

While many alleged traffic violators accept their tickets and punishment, there are numerous ways and reasons to fight your charges. At the this firm, we have helped hundreds of people face their traffic violation charges, have their charges dismissed, or reduce their charges and punishment.

We can seek a prayer for judgment (PJC), which allows the court to pass judgment later. With a prayer for judgment, the driver is charged the cost of court, but no decision is rendered, no conviction is filed, and no points are assigned. We can work to have your charges reduced to a non-moving violation, which will not add any points to your driving record or insurance. If your license was revoked and you can resolve your issue before your court date, you may be able to avoid a revocation of your license. We can also assist with the following:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Failure to wear a seat belt
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving with an expired inspection sticker
  • Failure to observe a stop sign
  • Driving with an invalid, suspended or revoked driver’s license (DWLR)
  • Driving with expired registration
  • Failure to adequately maintain a vehicle
  • Racing and hit-and-run
  • Passing a stopped school bus
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road, illegal passing and following too closely

If you have been charged with a traffic violation, call our office. We can provide experienced representation, and can even represent you in court if you are unable to appear. This is often convenient for clients charged with speeding tickets while passing through from other states.
