We’ve all seen in TV shows and movies that one of the first things people do when they are taken into custody is ask to see a lawyer. As quoted in your Miranda Rights, you have the right to pick an attorney, and if you do not choose one yourself, the Court will appoint one to you.
Of course, it is in your best interest to choose your own lawyer – one who has your best interests at heart. Public defenders mean well, but most are so overworked that they are not nearly [...]
If you have been arrested on a criminal charge, there are several different potential outcomes. Your own outcome will largely depend on your situation and the strength of your criminal defense.
The criminal courts process a wide variety of offenses—everything from shoplifting to DUIs to homicide. But for every type of crime, there are a limited number of possible results. In this post, we’ll take a look at the potential results available for all individuals charged with a crime.
Charges Dropped. There are a number of reasons that the prosecution might drop charges [...]
Police brutality and unfair treatment are unfortunate realities of modern America.
Recently, there has been a public outcry to hold police accountable and a great deal of media attention around violations of human rights that occur under police custody.
No matter how heinous the alleged crime, whether it was a felony or misdemeanor, you still have rights when you are arrested. Rights of the accused were put into the Constitution to protect all citizens of the United States from abuse of power. Below we have listed actions that may constitute a violation of [...]
North Carolina is one of the handful of states that uses structured sentencing—a method of sentencing and punishing criminals where courts look at the severity of the crime and any previous criminal record in order to decide on an appropriate punishment and length of sentence.
Structured sentencing is different from the indeterminate sentencing system used by most other states, where courts have wide discretion when determining a sentence. With indeterminate sentencing, offenders are sentenced to a term of imprisonment that reflects a range, such as one to five years. With structured sentencing, [...]
The recent shootings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York have awakened the public to a disturbingly prevalent problem in our country—police brutality. Police brutality refers to the use of physical, verbal, or psychological intimidation by an officer of the law. Far too often, American citizens have been physically abused or forced into a statement by corrupt police officers.
In an effort to combat this problem, many cities in North Carolina—Greensboro included—have started outfitting police officers with body cameras. In Greensboro, these cameras are small—a little over three inches in length—and [...]
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!
I had a traffic case and they were willing to help me. I was told they would get the ticket moved down to a lesser charge. Thet actually had the whole case dismissed.
