Few criminal charges carry higher stakes for the accused, or traditionally receive more attention from law enforcement and the public, than those associated with homicide and physical or sexual assault. Our criminal defense lawyers have defended individuals charged with all types of violent crimes in both state and federal courts across North Carolina. We take the presumption of innocence and the prosecution’s burden of proof very seriously, and we independently and thoroughly investigate each case and zealously defend every person we represent.
As law enforcement agencies and prosecutors increasingly rely on the forensic sciences and digital evidence to prosecute violent crimes, our team has remained on the cutting edge of these developments, strengthening our base of knowledge and experience in those sciences and technologies and exposing their flaws and misuse, both inside and outside the courtroom.
We are acutely aware of the impact of allegations of violent crime on the accused and their families, and we care deeply about every person we represent. For this reason, our firm is well known for approaching each case and each client with the utmost compassion, focus, and commitment.
