Raleigh Drug Crime Lawyers

If you are facing drug charges in North Carolina, you need a criminal defense lawyer experienced in representing people charged with drug offenses.  In this circumstance, having a skilled attorney in your corner is the best resource in a process that includes by its nature fear, anxiety, and consequences that begin the minute you are charged.  Though North Carolina’s laws dictate harsh, mandatory minimum sentencing for drug crime, a conviction of any kind can negatively impact your life, narrow your opportunity for education and success, and degraded the quality of your life.  We may be able to help you avoid some of these ramifications.

North Carolina’s criminal laws governing drug charges are complex.  Depending on the amount of drugs involved, you could be facing misdemeanor or felony charges. Because drug charges can have both state and federal consequences, you need an attorney skilled in both jurisdictions.  The consequences arising from drug crime can range from small monetary fines and community service to mandatory minimum sentences of years in prison. The skill of your lawyer is often the difference between a jail sentence and a more favorable result.

With over 40 years of experience handling Raleigh drug cases, we are skilled and experienced in defending the full variety of drug offenses, including:

Regardless of the charges against you, the government carries the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt each element of the charges alleged against you in seeking a conviction.  The government has nearly limitless resources to secure such convictions and is often zealous in their pursuit of conviction.
