Criminal Defense

The practice area of Criminal Defense primarily involves representation of people who are charged with crimes either at the State or Federal level. A person can be charged with a crime by the issuance of a citation, an arrest warrant, an indictment, or an information. Crimes in North Carolina are divided into two primary categories: misdemeanors, which are usually relatively minor violations of the law, and felonies, which are more serious violations.
