Gun laws in North Carolina could see some big changes, and it might not be in the way you expect.
The massacre of 49 people at an Orlando nightclub in June became a catalyst for heated gun rights debates throughout the country. Many people were moved to speak to local lawmakers and political leaders about how gun restrictions (or loosening gun restrictions) can prevent another mass shooting. The next day, the North Carolina House of Representatives introduced HB 1148, an amendment that would eliminate the requirement to have a concealed carry permit.
Guns are a hot topic right now. With numerous school shootings, police shootings, and even terrorist acts threatening gun policies, it’s more important then ever to know and understand gun laws and your rights regarding guns in North Carolina.
Protecting the Second Amendment and the “right of the people to keep and bear Arms” is at the heart of this issue. And under section 30 of our state constitution, North Carolina also protects North Carolinians’ right to bear arms.
But just because you have that right doesn’t mean you always have that right. [...]
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. I never had to go to court they went for me and kept me informed. That way I did not have to miss work. I say a job well done, and they went over and aboard. The first time I ever neeed a laywer and glad I made the right choice.

I know there so many attorneys that represent people in courts in countless places including Greensboro, NC, US. However, each attorney or firm is differentiated from other lawyers by his or her expertise, knowledge, experience, and philosophical professionalism. I can't find words that would describe my satisfaction with Schlosser & Pritchett Firm when they helped me shake off the trouble I most got into. Please do not hesitate to contact this firm if you really want an assistance with your case.

I made the right decision and retained SCHLOSSER & PRATCHETT. They were able to straighten out what was happening to me. I avoided what was surely happening to me.

In North Carolina, the crime of battery is taken very seriously, especially when children are involved. When the case includes an unborn child, the penalties faced can be even harsher.
In January, a Raleigh man was arrested after attacking a pregnant woman. He now faces charges not only for assault but also the battery of her unborn child. He threw a shelf at a woman who was eight months pregnant, and it struck her on the side of her abdomen.
Pregnancy takes many months, and it may not always look obvious, but that [...]
Sometimes people who perpetrate crimes assume that evading initial arrest means they escape charges for good. However, this is a false sense of security. In many cases, like drug distribution, investigations take time. Acts committed in the past can come back to haunt you.
A recent case in Asheville shows just how long it can take. After a seven-month investigation, nine people were arrested for an array of crimes, including conspiracy to traffick heroin/opium and continuing a criminal enterprise. The investigation may yet yield more charges against those arrested.
When you’re convicted of or plead guilty to a crime, sentencing may involve jail or probation. Also called “community supervision”, probation might be preferable to prison, but it still has its difficulties.
One of the biggest challenges of probation is the possibility that it can be revoked. What does that mean, and when does it happen? Read on to find out.
Probation in NC: What Is It?
When a judge hands down a sentence, they have the option to pass a suspended sentence and place a person on probation for a period of [...]
