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!

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.

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 [...]
