Defense Attorneys for North Carolina Violent Crimes
Anyone facing a felony criminal charge is in big trouble. By definition, your potential punishment if convicted is a year or more in prison.

Salisbury Violent Crimes Attorney
We take as our starting point the specific charges against you. We advise you about your exposure to the possibility of punishment under the sentencing guidelines and the practices of the court and prosecution in the county where your case is pending. In developing your defense, we consider the evidence, the rules of criminal procedure, the availability of constitutional defenses, and our ability to shake the district attorney’s confidence in the evidence against you long before trial. Although we know how to try and win cases before a jury, most of our work is done shortly after the charges have been filed. Our goal is to make sure that the most serious charges against you are resolved in your favor long before a trial even takes place.
