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. 

Traffic Offenses

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. 

Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)

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.

Drug Charges

From misdemeanor marijuana possession to felony drug trafficking, we represent clients facing all types of drug charges. 

Alcohol Charges

Underage drinking, providing alcohol to a minor, and disorderly conduct are common alcohol charges that can stain your record and ruin your reputation. 

Domestic Violence

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. 

Sexual Offenses

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. 

Violent Crime and Assault

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.

Theft & Property Crime

From shoplifting to breaking and entering, we will defend you against allegations and charges of property crimes. 

Firearm & Weapon Violations

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.

    I can not say enough good about David Coolidge and the Law Firm! From the moment of our 1st interaction, I could tell that David TRULY cares and has a passion about the cases he takes on. I was anxious and nervous about my case from the beginning. David immediately showed his support and listened with an empathetic ear. From that moment on, I felt as though I knew I could trust him to put his whole heart into helping me with my case. He is intelligent, kind and completely nonjudgmental. He will listen to you and is so very supportive. I really felt, and still do, that he really cared about helping me. His passion for his work and in helping others shines. We VERY HAPPILY, had a GREAT outcome from the case and I could not be happier. As I told him when we left the court room that morning... “David, you have changed my life forever”. I would recommend David and this Law Firm to EVERYONE who is reading this review.

    David Coolidge is a wonderful attorney! I hired him twice for two different cases that I had which were only 2 months apart. He's very thorough and efficient. I was even able to reach him after hours through phone calls, texts, and email. Hopefully I never need his services again but if I am in a similar predicament I would most definitely hire David again.

    Excellent Customer Service. I had a Speeding ticket and they resolved it positively with no points on my Driver License. They represented me in Court and by midday on the Court date, they had updated me on the outcome. Very efficient service. I highly recommend them if you are in need of Legal Services.

    I got a speeding ticket for going 17 over. They sent me a letter in the mail explaining that I could plead improper equipment and get no points on my insurance or license. They even gave me the fees straight out on the letter including court costs. They represented me and made the ticket go away.

    I cannot say enough about Attorney Coolidge and his staff. He’s handed several matters for me and in every instance he has exceeded my expectations. He even answered a frantic call from me on a Saturday night. I called in desperation not really expecting an answer. Mr. Coolidge delivered on all that he promised and more. I highly recommend.
