Sex crimes are taken seriously in North Carolina, even when minors perpetrate them. However, the system set up for juveniles is different from the system set up to address adult sex offenders, even if they share some similarities.
Many people understand that adult sex offenders who are convicted of certain crimes must register as public sex offenders, but what about juveniles who commit some of the same crimes?
There’s a lot to unpack when it comes to juvenile sex offenses in North Carolina. Here’s what you need to understand about their crimes and [...]
Good Samaritan laws across the country are meant to keep those who try to save others in life-threatening situations safe from legal action. However, they don’t always work as they are intended – with devastating consequences for many people.
Recently, a group of parents – who had lost children to overdose and other substance-related accidents – got together and lobbied the North Carolina legislature to strengthen the Good Samaritan law in the state. Currently, the law does offer protections to those acting in good faith when they seek medical help for someone in [...]
It’s a common misconception that domestic violence increases over the holiday season. People assume that since tensions may rise when families reunite for the holidays, domestic violence incidents rise right along with it. But this isn’t the case at all.
Evidence suggests that domestic violence actually goes down over the holidays, in reality. However, with so many families getting together, law enforcement seems to be on the lookout for domestic violence situations more than ever. This can lead to arrests for domestic violence that may not be warranted.
Many people have packages delivered over the holidays. It’s simply a convenient and sometimes necessary way to get the things you need. Unfortunately, the rise of package delivery has also coincided with the rise of something else – porch piracy.
Porch pirates are the moniker assigned to those who steal packages off people’s porches. It’s something that is occurring everywhere, including in North Carolina. One Charlotte woman reported that, in a matter of just three weeks, she was struck by porch pirates several times.
One can only assume that porch piracy will continue [...]
If you assume you need to be behind the wheel of a car or truck in order to get charged with driving under the influence, you’re not alone. It’s a common misconception that, to get a DUI, you need to be behind the wheel of an actual car or truck. However, that’s not the case at all.
A North Carolina man is finding out the hard way what the definition of a motorized vehicle is. He was arrested behind the wheel of a golf cart for driving without the headlights on. When police [...]
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.

If you’re a North Carolina sex offender, then you know that you have to live by certain rules. Not abiding by the directives set forth by the state can land you in a lot of legal hot water, as one Flat Rock, N.C. man recently found out.
A man married to a woman who worked at a North Carolina middle school was arrested, along with his wife, for being on the school campus. Why? Because he was a registered sex offender. It is not legal for anyone who is a convicted sex offender [...]
Shoplifting is a crime some people view as not very serious. You may often hear it referred to as a victimless crime. But that is certainly not the stance that North Carolina takes when it comes to shoplifting.
In fact, a recent crime wave in Raleigh has law enforcement cracking down harder than ever on shoplifting in the city and around the state. Retailers have really struggled to stay in business during the pandemic. Shoplifting has been hurting their bottom line, so they’ve joined law enforcement to get tough on shoplifting and prosecute [...]
Domestic violence isn’t something that impacts only the lives of those directly involved. It has far-reaching effects on those in its vicinity, especially kids.
In North Carolina, domestic violence is taken very seriously and someone can face some serious jail time, fines, and other consequences if they are convicted of domestic violence crimes. There is more to domestic violence than penalties, however; there is also the way it can impact children who are mixed up in it.
Here’s what you need to know about how domestic violence impacts children and their development.
