A Versatile, Effective Greenville Criminal Law Attorney

Through my law practice, I represent clients of all ages who face criminal charges in eastern North Carolina state and federal courts. I work hard to shoulder the burden of my clients' criminal defenses on charges, including:

  • Drug offenses: Possession, possession with intent to sell, trafficking, sale or distribution of controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia and drug conspiracy.
  • Traffic violations: Speeding tickets, reckless or careless driving, driving while intoxicated (DWI), and driving with a revoked or suspended license. I can also represent you in Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearings to reinstate your driving privileges.
  • Violent crimes: Allegations can range from simple assault and murder to domestic violence and weapons offenses.
  • "Student" crimes: These are crimes involving minors and young adults, including possession of false identification, larceny, shoplifting, underage drinking and underage possession of alcohol.
  • Federal crimes: I defend people charged with federal crimes, including drug offenses, white collar crimes and firearms offenses in the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Can I Clear My Record?

In certain circumstances, individuals can petition judges to erase arrests or convictions from their criminal records. This legal process is called expungement.

Expungement is valuable not only for saving you embarrassment, but it can also protect your prospects for future employment or admittance to selective campus organizations. If you want to go to graduate school or gain an important professional accreditation, it is in your best interest to have your record cleared.
