If you have been charged with a crime, you need a qualified, experienced, and aggressive defense lawyer who will fight for you. We are here to provide that representation to you.
When you hire an attorney, experience is, of course, important. But it is just as important to consider what that experience means. An attorney with 20 years of experience means little to a criminal or traffic offender if that attorney has spent that time in a government job not dealing with criminal law, or shuffling papers in a law firm, and not in the courtroom handling the type of cases important to you. I have the kind of experience that matters to you, if you are charged with a traffic matter or criminal offense.
I have been representing motorists charged with criminal and traffic offenses in Western North Carolina for over 11 years. The vast majority of my day is spent in court in front of a judge and negotiating with the District Attorney on cases just like yours. I handle cases in several Counties in WNC.
When you hire my firm, you can rest assured that you have hired an experienced, aggressive, energetic attorney who is very knowledgeable in criminal law and traffic law. I have handled thousands of traffic matters over the years, and have learned just what the Department of Motor Vehicles and insurance companies will do after the court date is over, something the district attorney cannot tell you.
We strive to be different from many other defense attorneys. I have successfully defended people who have been charged with misdemeanors as minor as shoplifting and speeding tickets to hundreds of driving impaired charges and some felony matters, as well. We have helped a great number of people get their drivers licenses returned to them and provide sound advice on how to negotiate the maze of DMV regulations and rules to prevent you losing your license again.
No matter what your charges are, I take your defense seriously. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a MINOR charge. It matters to me and it should matter to you, as well.
Please remember that you have rights. Exercise them!
The North Carolina Law Directory is a free public service of the North Carolina Consumers Council to help you find a lawyer in North Carolina.
Finding the right lawyer to represent you is a very important decision! Whether you are drafting a will, fighting a wage garnishment, or simply trying to beat a traffic ticket, you should select the best possible lawyer.
Since you want to find the best possible lawyer, all participants in this lawyer directory are screened and verified against the North Carolina State Bar to have no public disciplinary actions on their records and to have an active North Carolina law license.
The content on this legal directory and linked content is not offered as, is not intended to be, and does constitute legal advice. It should not be relied upon as a source of legal advice. No part of this website, nor the websites of the attorneys, creates an attorney-client relationship. Your use of this website to contact an attorney does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and an attorney.
An attorney may, as a matter of policy, first investigate for possible conflicts of interest and obtain a signed agreement before accepting new clients.
All attorneys on the North Carolina Law Directory are licensed to practice law in North Carolina. The ability of an attorney to engage in activities on behalf of clients outside North Carolina is subject to state laws, professional codes and court rules.
Before entering into any agreement with an attorney, you should evaluate the attorney's skills and qualifications and understand all the fees involved. While no lawyer can guarantee success in any legal proceeding, you should ask about the lawyer's past history of success. Past successes should not be construed as a guarantee that the same or similar results can be obtained for another client. The outcome of a particular legal matter depends on a variety of different factors, including specific factual and legal circumstances.
- Treat the attorney and the attorney's staff with courtesy and consideration
- Pay the attorney's fee in accordance with any fee agreements you have signed to the extent required by law. If you do not pay the fee, the attorney is not obligated to represent you.
- Notify the attorney immediately if any contact information has changed. If your address or phone number have changed, the attorney can't reach you.
- Notify the attorney immediately of any developments that can affect the outcome of your case. This includes any communications you may receive.
- Be completely honest. If you aren't completely honest with the attorney, the attorney cannot do the best job.
- Request an explanation from the attorney if you are not satisfied with any development.
- Keep your requests reasonable. Twelve phone calls per day can keep the attorney from effectively representing you. Most attorneys are good about getting information to you very quickly. If you don't understand a development, ask for clarification. But don't expect an hourly progress report.
- Be patient.
