Our Criminal Defense Strategies Protect Your Future Right to Expungement

Our clients usually cannot afford to plead guilty, even in misdemeanor cases where there is no real prospect of jail time. The damage to future career or academic prospects would be too great. North Carolina criminal convictions, whether by guilty plea or verdict, create permanent records that normally cannot be expunged.

That’s why our Pitt County law firm concentrates on ways to resolve cases that will preserve your right to expungement. Under North Carolina law, expungement means that all records of the arrest and prosecution are removed, and it’s as if the offense never occurred.

In Focus: DWI Lawyer

One large component of our practice involves defending those accused of drunk driving, DWI, DUI and traffic tickets. Whether you are a first-time or a repeat offender, we want you to know you have options. Pleading guilty is a last resort, and should not be done until your attorney has exhausted all other options. The penalties for DWI are too severe to take lightly. We will defend you to the fullest possible extent.
