Areas of Practice

Criminal Law

We defend clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies both in District and Superior Court in Burke County.  This would include Assaults, Drug Charges, Larceny, Breaking and Entering and Expungments.  Depending upon the facts of your case it may be possible to obtain a not guilty verdict, a dismissal or a charge reduction.



Having prosecuted and defended hundreds of DWI cases, we feel confident that we can provide the best legal representation on your behalf.  If you feel that you are not guilty, we can help to plan, prepare and present the best possible defense to this charge.  If you feel that you are guilty, we will still examine and analyze the State’s case to determine whether the State can present sufficient proof to obtain a conviction.  We will also help you in presenting all mitigating factors to the court.  If eligible, we will prepare your limited driving privilege.



We focus this practice in helping clients on matters as minor as a stop sign violation to as serious as reckless driving.  Our firm has represented thousands of people charged with speeding and other moving violations.  A conviction for such an offense can have a major impact upon your driver’s license and automobile insurance rates.  With our experience and knowledge of the law we can help in almost every case so as to lesson the effect upon drivers license points and insurance rates.  Our traffic practice covers the entire 25th Judicial District; Burke, Caldwell and Catawba counties.


Personal Injury

We also provide representation to clients who have been injured due to the negligence of others.  Such cases include automobile collisions and slip and fall accidents.  We have helped numerous clients obtain just compensation for their injuries.
