I am Attorney Frank Harper of Everett & Hite, L.L.P. Through my practice, I represent people who face criminal charges in eastern North Carolina state and federal courts. A large portion of my clients is students at East Carolina University and Pitt Community College. I recognize that the stakes are high when an arrest or criminal charge threatens your education and career opportunities.

On Your Side Every Step Of The Way

My practice can prepare you for a number of criminal defense situations such as:

  • Drug crimes, including possession, selling and trafficking from the
    misdemeanor to felony levels
  • Traffic violations, including speeding tickets
  • Violent crimes, including assault
  • Underage drinking and possession of alcohol
  • Other “student” crimes, including possession of false identification,
    larceny and shoplifting
  • White collar crimes, such as bank fraud and embezzlement
  • Federal crimes, including firearms violations and drug conspiracy

Because a criminal record can cause devastating consequences on your personal and professional future, we can work to expunge an arrest or conviction from your criminal record.
