New Bern and Morehead City Firm Protects Accused 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 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 Morehead City, 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.

Proven lawyers uphold fundamental rights in criminal proceedings

We provide tough, comprehensive criminal defense representation to clients throughout North Carolina in a full range of criminal defense cases, including prosecutions charging:

  • Crimes of violence — Severe penalties associated with crimes of violence can coerce an accused individual into giving up in exchange for more lenient treatment. We don’t accept the alleged victim’s story at face value but make every effort to develop evidence of self-defense and other factors that put the incident into greater perspective.
  • Traffic offenses — Citations for drunk driving, speeding, reckless driving and other road offenses can have serious legal consequences, especially if they result in auto accidents. Our firm works diligently to help you avoid such penalties as fines and license suspension whenever possible.
  • Expungements — One mistake in your past should not follow you forever. If you have a record of arrest or conviction and have avoided trouble in the years since it occurred, 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 to consult with an attorney. To protect yourself, it’s best to retain a proven criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible.

Skillful attorneys represent clients accused of drug crimes

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.

Firm handles felony and misdemeanor cases in Craven and Carteret counties

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.
