Criminal Law


My law practice concentrates on criminal law, DWI defense, law enforcement representation (SEE LAW ENFORCEMENT REPRESENTATION PAGE) and employment law as it pertains to State employees.  


My criminal practice serves primarily New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties, but I am willing to travel if you desire our services.

DWI Representation

Drunk driving or “driving while impaired” (DWI) is a serious offense that can seriously impact your freedom and your future. The penalties you face are based on your “level” and based on any previous offenses on your record, your age and your license type, you could face penalties like:

  • Fines, including court costs and lawyer fees

  • Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license

  • Jail time. For some offenses, the jail time is mandatory rather than possible

  • Community service

  • Higher car insurance rates
