New Bern Criminal Defense Attorneys Battle to Protect Clients
Aggressive North Carolina advocates defend against all types of allegations
No matter what type of criminal allegation is made, the person accused has fundamental rights, including the right to remain silent. Without a strong defense lawyer, however, it can be hard to assert those rights in front of police and prosecutors. For the last decade, the Carolina Law Group in New Bern has provided defendants with the forceful advocacy they are entitled to in a full range of North Carolina criminal matters. Whether you’ve been charged with a felony, misdemeanor or traffic offense, our attorneys will ensure that you are not misled or intimidated into an unjust resolution. We challenge questionable evidence and fight for fair treatment at every stage of your case.
Proven lawyers defend fundamental rights in criminal proceedings
We provide tough, comprehensive criminal defense representation to clients throughout eastern North Carolina. Our firm handles a full range of cases:
- Felonies — Prosecutions for serious charges such as sexual assault, armed robbery and murder demand a proven defense attorney with a track record of success. We are used to high-profile litigation and understand how to confront misleading witnesses and challenge improper evidence.
- Misdemeanors — Problems arising from a conviction for assault, theft or another misdemeanor can linger long after your sentence is completed. A criminal record can prevent you from getting the home or job that you want. That is why we stand up for clients in court whenever it’s in their best interests, rather than accepting any plea deal that is offered.
- Traffic offenses — Citations for drunk driving, speeding, reckless driving, and other road offenses can lead to legal problems, especially if they result in auto accidents. Our firm handles these cases so that you can avoid penalties such as fines and license suspension whenever possible.
- Expungements — One mistake in your past should not follow you forever if you have avoided trouble in the years that have passed. If you have an arrest record or were convicted of a crime, we can advise you as to whether you are eligible to clear your name through expungement.
Once you are arrested, authorities may pressure you to surrender your Miranda right to remain silent and other fundamental rights. To protect yourself, you need to retain a proven criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible.
Skillful lawyers represent clients accused of drug crimes
Many different drug-related counts exist within the North Carolina Statutes. Whether you have been charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession or a felony trafficking count carrying a sentence greater than 10 years in prison, strong counsel maximizes your chances for a satisfactory outcome. Small distinctions in the amount and the particular substance involved can make a big difference in how your case is handled. We have detailed knowledge of evidentiary standards and the relevant state and federal laws. Our firm works diligently to secure an acquittal, reduction in charges, or a plea agreement that includes substance abuse treatment as an alternative to incarceration.
