If you are facing a criminal charge, you are protected by the United States Constitution, statutory defenses and common-law defenses, and you should be represented by a full-time defense trial lawyer. A skilled criminal defense attorney can sort through the facts of your case, prepare the proper defense and deal with prosecutors in the most skillful manner. Many of our seasoned, accomplished attorneys are former prosecutors with the knowledge and expertise to properly handle your criminal matter.
With well over 150 years of legal experience in criminal law, few law firms have the same level of experience as Grace Tisdale & Clifton P.A. Our attorneys are recognized throughout North Carolina and beyond for our criminal defense expertise.
Always Talk To An Attorney First
Before you give any information or statements, whether to a federal officer or local law enforcement, you should speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney first. It is important to retain an experienced advocate as soon as possible to ensure that you can assert the proper challenges, whether you are facing indictment, at the trial stage or even at the appellate stage.
Meeting with a lawyer can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. Both federal and local law enforcement have sophisticated methods of extracting information which can be later used against you. You may not even realize that the information is being gathered and you may just want to be helpful. Getting the right advice early on protects your legal rights. So whether you are facing allegations of white collar financial crimes such as embezzlement, extortion or fraud or allegations of violent crimes such as murder, sexual assault or robbery — you should hire the right criminal defense firm from the start. We can also assist if you have been subject to civil or criminal asset forfeiture.
