Criminal Defense Charges:
Whether you face prosecution for a complex drug or fraud charge, or police recently arrested you for driving while impaired or hit and run, our Yadkin County attorneys can help. We can put you back in control of your life and develop an appropriate defense to your traffic ticket, misdemeanor, or felony charges.
Your charges can lead to significant fines and penalties, a suspended license, and even lengthy incarceration, depending on the type and extent of your alleged offense. It likely is not in your best interest to go without a lawyer.
We represent clients charged with traffic offenses, including driving with a suspended license, speeding, careless or reckless driving, and red light violations. Conviction for a traffic violation can lead to penalties and fines, as well as a significant increase in your car insurance premium. Depending on your violation, the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles may either suspend your driver’s license or add points to your driving record.
A charge of driving while impaired can affect every aspect of your life. In North Carolina there are multiples levels of punishment that a person can receive depending on the facts and severity of each individual case. Even if this is your first offense, you could have to pay at least $1500.00 in fines and costs, your insurance rates will increase 425% over the next three years, and your license will be suspended for at least one year. From the initial stop or arrest to breath and blood sampling and chemical analysis, we will carefully consider all factors when developing your defense strategy.
These types of offenses can range from a simple possession charge which is a misdemeanor offense, to drug trafficking which is a felony with mandatory active time and oppressive fines. The implications of being convicted of these types of charges can be far reaching, including exclusion for eligibility for student loans. Our team is ready, willing and able to help you wade through the complex and hard to understand drug laws for North Carolina. Together we can provide an often creative way to dispose of these types of charges.
There are a multitude of various misdemeanor and felony assault based charges. These types of crimes could result in probation or an active sentence. Our approach is to work with the client and advise them of the options for addressing their case, as well as advising on how different areas treat assault cases. Taking this approach allows us to keep our clients from getting lost in the wide array of “what ifs” and focused on the case at hand so that we can reach a favorable outcome.
This includes cases such as Domestic Violence Protective Orders (DVPOs) and DVPO violations. Depending on which side of the issue you land on, your needs vary greatly from that of the other party involved. We have years of experience defending alleged violators of DVPOs as well as assisting those who need the protection of a DVPO.
Besides the social ramifications and embarrassment of being charged, sex offenses also carry serious consequences. Shore Law Firm, PLLC handles cases such as Internet sex crimes, child pornography, sexual assault, rape and sexual offenses against children.
