North Carolina Felony Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer
Conviction for felony drug offenses in North Carolina, including trafficking and conspiracy, can result in a mandatory minimum prison sentence. With each charge carrying a potentially lengthy sentence, a person charged with felony drug offenses must obtain strong legal defense to maintain his or her freedom and to protect his or her rights.
I am Neil W. Morrison, a criminal defense attorney in Greenville, North Carolina. I represent college students and adults facing criminal charges, including misdemeanor, felony and federal drug charges. Contact my office to discuss your felony or other drug crimes charges.
Exploring All Avenues of Defense
What determines if a drug charge is a felony or a misdemeanor? Typically, the charge is based upon the quantity of drugs as well as the circumstances that led to your arrest. Further, felony drug cases can involve prescription medications such as Xanax or more traditional drugs such as marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine.
In my state and federal criminal defense practice, I handle misdemeanor and felony drug offense cases involving:
- Possession of drugs and paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to sell or deliver (PWISD) drugs
- Conspiracy to traffic
- Manufacturing and distribution
- Fraudulent sale of prescription drugs
To achieve the best outcome in your felony drug crimes case, I will explore all avenues of defense. From challenging search and seizure methods to questioning witness credibility, I will work to protect your rights and freedom. From pursuing deferred prosecution to having your charges dismissed with the possibility of the expungement of your arrest and criminal record, I am here to help you.
Invoking Your Rights
You have the right to an attorney. As soon as you are arrested, ask to speak with your lawyer and call me. You also have the right to remain silent. Do not discuss the charges, arrest or details of your case with law enforcement, your friends or family. Anything you say can be used against you. Protect yourself by speaking first with your criminal defense attorney.
Contact my office to schedule an initial consultation and to discuss your legal options. I provide efficient, cost-effective representation while working to prevent life-long consequences for what may have been a one-time indiscretion.
