Our Criminal Defense Attorneys’ Practice Areas
No matter what charge you are facing, you are entitled to a proper defense and deserve experienced legal representation from criminal defense attorneys who will defend your rights using effective strategies to achieve favorable results.
Coolidge Law Firm represents clients in all matters of criminal law, including felonies and misdemeanors.
While traffic offenses are often not taken seriously, speeding tickets, driving on a suspended license, or even reckless driving resulting in an injury can lead to serious consequences.
You may think there isn’t much you can do if you are pulled over for driving while intoxicated (DWI), but our criminal defense attorneys will challenge your case and strive to eliminate or minimize the consequences.
From misdemeanor marijuana possession to felony drug trafficking, we represent clients facing all types of drug charges.
Underage drinking, providing alcohol to a minor, and disorderly conduct are common alcohol charges that can stain your record and ruin your reputation.
If you are facing assault and battery charges or other domestic violence allegations, we will defend you against allegations and strive to get charges dismissed, reduced, or achieve a fair verdict.
Allegations of sexual offense or misconduct can be devastating but with our aggressive defense representation, we will stand up to prosecutors and build an impactful defense strategy.
Assault and other violent crimes are serious and punished severely, but we represent defendants accused of violent crimes. This has given us the experience and knowledge necessary to defend you against these grievous charges.
From shoplifting to breaking and entering, we will defend you against allegations and charges of property crimes.
Firearm and weapons violations charges can lead to prison or jail time and loss of all rights to own or use a firearm. Whether you’re charged with a misdemeanor or felony, we’ll stand by your side and work for favorable outcomes.
Federal Defense Attorneys
In addition to representing clients in state crimes brought by Wake County, we also represent clients in the Eastern District of North Carolina as federal defense attorneys. Federal charges are brought by the Department of Justice under suspicion of breaking a criminal statute of the U.S. Code, and these crimes are often accompanied by more severe penalties than the state equivalent. Additionally, the Department of Justice has more resources to investigate and prosecute allegations, making it that much more important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
When You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer
Regardless of how serious the charge is, you need a criminal defense attorney to help you navigate the challenging legal system.
Consider the impact on your life a conviction can have on you:
- Time in jail or prison
- Heavy fines
- Inability to find employment
- Damage to your reputation
- Inability to rent property
Even after you’ve paid your debt, your mistake can follow you. Having a defense lawyer who will put everything into your case, regardless of how minor the charge can help you move forward with your life.
