But while that’s true, you still want to make sure that you choose the right person for your case. How do you do that? What do you look for?
Many defense lawyers offer a free consultation, so take advantage of this. Meet [...]
If you’ve been charged with a crime, you may face jail time, heavy fines, and all of the lasting consequences of having a mark on your criminal record. Before you head into the courtroom, you will need to be prepared with a defense strategy to use against the prosecution to give yourself the best chance at regaining the freedom you had before being charged.

Those convicted of low-level crimes and drug offenses make up a huge amount of the prisoners serving time in local, state, and federal prisons in our state, and their numbers are only increasing. So many low-level offenders are being incarcerated that our prisons are now facing overcrowding and have become an enormous expense for taxpayers. It probably also won’t come as much of a surprise that a disproportionate amount of minorities are being arrested and incarcerated.
Partially because of these issues, Fayetteville is looking to reform the way it treats low-level drug offenders [...]

If you’re charged with assault in North Carolina, you could be facing a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the supposed crime.

My deepest thanks to the team at Schlosser and Pritchett. What might have seemed a hopeless case to some was not to this team. My traffic violation was dismissed when even I didn't think it had a chance. Well done folks and rest assured I am advocate of your firm. Thanks, Jim
I made the terrible mistake of driving drunk and got a DWI. And due to my high BAC I was facing some very serious penalties. After much "lawyer shopping" I decided to go with Mr. Pritchett. He made it very clear we faced an uphill battle and in all likelihood i would be convicted. Nevertheless, we came up with a plan and when favorable situations presented themselves Mr. Pritchett knew exactly how to use them to our advantage. Because of his thorough knowledge of how the system works he was able to get my DWI charge dismissed on June 8, 2018. I have learned my lesson and will NEVER drink and drive again but for those that make the mistake I highly recommend Mr. Pritchett. Thank you so much to everyone at Sclosser and Pritchett!
