Criminal defense


A driving while impaired charge can have serious consequences, including the loss of your license and potential jail time. You want to make sure you handle it properly. Attorney Jones worked as a traffic court prosecutor in Durham County, handling hundreds of DWI cases for the state. His job was to identify the weaknesses in a drunk driving case so the state could be prepared for trial. Let him put that experience to work for you.


Police video

Police departments across North Carolina are quickly adopting the use of body cameras and dash cameras. In 2016, the N.C. General Assembly rewrote the law governing police video. Now, if you appear in one of those videos, you have a limited right to see the recording. Even if you aren’t in the video, under some circumstances the police can be compelled to release it. Our firm offers affordable options to help you get access to police video, and we will take these cases anywhere in North Carolina.
