So you think you might be in trouble.  And you think you need a lawyer.  Do you?  The answer is: better safe that sorry.  Look, no one wants to waste money, especially on an lawyer.

But talking to a lawyer is absolutely crucial early in a case.  I’ve talked to a number of potential clients in the last month. A few of whom have hired me. And a few who haven’t.  But I can guarantee you, that even the folks who did not hire me, have learned from my advice.

That’s because a criminal lawyer is familiar with the process. A criminal lawyer has been through cases numerous times. And a criminal lawyer knows the kinds of things that a client can do to improve his chances to avoid conviction.

Even if you don’t hire an attorney, if you think you might be arrested, or you think you might be in trouble, it is worth your time to call an attorney and, if possible, visit the lawyer and talk one-on-one.  You’ll learn things about the criminal process, particularly as it is handled in Raleigh, Cary, and Apex and the rest of Wake County.

You’ll learn what to expect.  You’ll also learn what you need to do to avoid further criminal liability, and to protect you and your family.

Call me at [#phone#] if I can be of help. Even if I’m too busy to take the case, or I’m not the right lawyer to take the case, I can point you in the direction of an attorney who would be good.  And I can help you think through your next steps.
