I am attorney Neil W. Morrison. I devote most of my practice to defending individuals facing federal criminal charges in the Middle and Eastern Districts of North Carolina — from Winston-Salem to Wilmington. The federal government has the resources, both in terms of money and manpower, to spend as long as it wants to investigate suspected criminal activity. Once indicted, a defendant faces the possibility of mandatory minimum prison sentences for many crimes, including drug, gun, sex offense, and child pornography charges.
The fact is, if you have received a target letter, are facing indictment, or have already been indicted, the lawyer you choose will greatly impact your life going forward. You can rely on my law firm to provide tough, calculated and effective legal representation each and every step of the way.
Fighting Federal Charges and Other Serious Criminal Accusations Across
In my federal criminal practice, I defend people facing all types of allegations, including white collar charges such as bank and credit card fraud. I also defend clients against drug and firearm charges, sex crime allegations, including child pornography, and illegal re-entry accusations.
My practice takes me to courtrooms throughout the Middle and Eastern Districts of North Carolina, from Winston-Salem to Wilmington. I represent people across the state, in places such as Greensboro, Raleigh, Winston-Salem and Greenville. I also handle serious felony cases throughout the state of North Carolina, including violent crimes and murder charges. Whatever your charge, you can rely on me to deliver the highest levels of client representation and service.
Service Is Its Own Reward
Before I entered law school, I was a high school teacher for approximately 10 years. I taught courses related to political, economic and legal systems, including an Advanced Placement course on government and politics. In that position, I learned that helping others is the best way to find satisfaction in work. I loved every minute of it, and it feeds the ethic of service that I have brought to this law firm: Help the client in the best way possible.
Organized, Detail-Oriented Strategies
I will tailor your legal strategy based on a comprehensive and detailed review of the evidence and of your personal circumstances. I always come prepared. As a teacher, my students taught me to always anticipate the unexpected. I will consider all possible outcomes for your case and create a thorough and meticulous plan and approach to handle any contingency as your matter moves forward.
Educating Clients About What to Expect
Once I have learned the facts of your case, I can work with you to set realistic goals and give a complete and full outline of how you can expect the matter to proceed from your initial appearance to arraignment to trial. I will help you understand your rights, your options, your odds of success, and your place within the broader legal system. Any time you have to make a decision about what to do next, it will be fully informed.
