You are facing criminal charges. You need a lawyer who understands your needs, knows how the local system works and possesses the criminal defense experience required to get you the best outcome possible. You have the right to representation. I can help you find the solutions you need.

Call my Asheville, North Carolina, office or contact me online to discuss your case.

Strong Criminal Defense Aligned With Your Best Interests

With 25-plus years of practice in Western North Carolina, my experience encompasses multiple areas of criminal defense in both state and federal court:

  • Defending against DWI charges
  • Defending against drug possession and other drug offense charges
  • Defending against breaking and entering charges
  • Defending against larceny charges
  • Defending against traffic violations
  • Defending against other misdemeanors and felonies

Knowledge is indeed power. The first thing I do when taking a criminal defense case is to explore the facts and the law, using the skills and resources I have cultivated in more than a quarter century of relevant experience to determine whether the prosecution really has a good case against you. Perhaps mistakes or loopholes exist that would help your case. If so, I will find them. Then, armed with that knowledge, I can negotiate forcefully with the prosecution to reach the best agreement possible.

On behalf of each client in a criminal case, I fully explore every possibility that might lead to an optimal result.
