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 against police and prosecutors. For the last decade, the Carolina Law Group has provided defendants with the forceful advocacy they are entitled to in a full range of criminal matters. Working from offices in New Bern and Beaufort, we defend felony, misdemeanor and traffic offense cases. Whether you’re facing years in prison or heavy fines, our attorneys will ensure that you are not misled or intimidated into an unjust resolution. We will challenge questionable evidence and fight for fair treatment at every stage of your case.
We provide tough, comprehensive criminal defense representation to clients throughout North Carolina in a full range of criminal defense cases, including prosecutions charging:
Once you are arrested, authorities may pressure you to surrender your Miranda right to remain silent and to consult with an attorney. To protect yourself, it’s best to retain a proven criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible.
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. North Carolina’s Controlled Substances Act classifies drugs in to six different schedules according to their severity, addictive nature and potential medical use. We have detailed knowledge of evidentiary standards and relevant punishments for specific violations of state or federal law, including cases involving misuse of prescription pharmaceuticals. Our firm works diligently to secure an acquittal, a reduction in charges or a plea agreement that includes substance abuse treatment as an alternative to incarceration.
Prosecutions for serious felony 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 are adept at confronting unreliable witnesses and challenging improper evidence. Once you’ve been charged, we’ll explain the factors that go into the state’s felony punishment grid and press for a lesser sentence whenever possible.
Even though the maximum misdemeanor sentence runs 150 days, a conviction for assault, theft or another crime can have consequences that linger long afterward. A criminal record can prevent you from getting the home or job that you want. That is why, in appropriate circumstances, we champion out clients’ rights to seek vindication in court rather than accept unsatisfactory plea deals.
