You cannot afford to plead guilty!

Due to the increase in drug usage in North Carolina and the nation, the government has created laws that make it easier for a law enforcement officer to stop and seize whoever is suspected of a drug offense. After being arrested, it is imperative that you take advantage of your right to remain silent. Anything you do or say may be used against you in the court of law. The next step you need to take is to retain the services of a legal professional. The Carteret County drug crime attorneys of our firm are here to tirelessly pursue your freedoms.

Dependent upon the type and amount of substances discovered at the time of your arrest, your penalties may include penalties such as the following:

  • Heavy fines
  • A severe prison sentence
  • Court-mandated counseling
  • A permanent criminal record
  • Strenuous terms of supervised probation

When you secure our supportive assistance, we will perform a thorough investigation of the evidences against you and review the events surrounding your arrest. We will take note of all evidences proving you innocence and use them to strengthen your personalized defense. It is also possible that your rights have been infringed upon by law enforcement officers. If this is the case, we will work to have you case completely dismissed or your charges reduced.

The following are circumstances in which the law enforcement officer was at fault:

  • No valid reason to stop you
  • No valid reason to search you or your property
  • No consent given to perform the search and seizure (when there was no search warrant)
  • Insufficient proof that any drugs discovered were actually possessed by you
