Traffic stop in Cherokee County results in drug charges

Being stopped by law enforcement is an overwhelming and frustrating experience for North Carolina motorists. While it might seem like an inconvenience, there is often a purpose for the traffic stop. However, it is important to note that not all stops are lawful. Additionally, even when a motorist stops for a traffic stop, law enforcement officers are required to follow strict protocols when it comes to their conduct with the motorist and evidence collection. This is true even when a driver fails to stop and attempts to flee police.

Helping you assert an aggressive defense against a drug charge

When individuals in North Carolina and elsewhere are accused of a crime, they are often overwhelmed by the situation, feeling helpless against the evidence the state has supposedly collected against them. With regard to drug crimes, even if a charge seems minor, it is likely that the penalties and consequences associated with it will impact the defendant's personal and professional life. Thus, it is imperative to take a stand, assert your right to a criminal defense and protect your rights.

Can you lose your car due to drunk driving in North Carolina?

Drunk driving can bring a host of serious legal problems for North Carolina drivers. If you are facing criminal charges related to driving while intoxicated, you know that you could be dealing with various penalties and consequences that may impact many areas of your life. However, you may not be aware of the fact that in some circumstances, drunk driving could lead to forfeiture of your personal vehicle. 

Facing marijuana drug charges?

Marijuana is one type of drug that North Carolina is working to decriminalize. This does not mean that, if you were recently arrested -- or are in the near future -- for marijuana possession, sales or trafficking that you will not face drug charges or penalties -- if convicted. As the current laws stand, the consequences for certain marijuana-related drug crimes can still have quite an impact on your life.

Facing drug charges? We can help

No matter the severity of the charge, facing a criminal charge is a serious situation. With regard to drug crimes, an accused offender could face serious penalties, especially if they are charged with a felony. And, while it might appear like authorities have a strong case against you based on the evidence that they collected, this does not mean defendants cannot assert a strong defense. It is possible to poke holes in the state's case, providing defendants with the opportunity to reduce or dismiss the charges against them.

Don't wait too long to file that car accident lawsuit

Being involved in a car crash can be a horrible experience. Sometimes, a car accident is relatively minor, consisting mostly of property damage and minor bumps and bruises. However, other car accidents are much more devastating. A person could be in critical condition following a car accident. Moreover, even after a car accident victim leaves the hospital, they could be facing months of rehabilitation before their health is back to normal, if it ever reaches that state at all. In addition, some injuries do not manifest themselves until days or weeks after the initial accident occurs.
