As anyone who has ever been injured or lost a family member or friend to a drunk driver knows, even one person operating a vehicle while intoxicated is one too many. There are far too many “real” accidents out there already for law enforcement officers, victims, and regular people to deal without tacking on something like drunk driving that is completely preventable. What does that mean? That the only reason it keeps occurring – and people keep suffering – is because we let it.
In 2011, the number of people killed by drunk [...]
In November 2013, Second Amendment advocates were angered by a federal district court’s decision to uphold a law that bans for life anyone convicted of domestic violence from owning a firearm. The decision stated,
“The government has demonstrated that domestic violence misdemeanants are likely to commit acts of domestic violence again and that, if they do so with a gun, the risk of death to the victim is significantly increased.”
This means that if you have been found guilty of any kind of domestic violence, even if it did not involve the use [...]
Speeding caused the car accident that killed Fast and Furiousstar Paul Walker on November 30, 2013. Apparently, the car in which he was a passenger was traveling at twice the posted 45 miles per hour speed limit. People everywhere were shocked, but given the grim statistics on speeding deaths in the United States, they should not have been.
2012 U.S. Census data shows that there were over 33,000 automobile fatalities due to speeding across the United States.
Even the eternal gridlock of New York City does not prevent speeding from being fatal there,
Over the past 40 years, the U.S. has dedicated a tremendous amount of law enforcement resources to prevent people from using drugs. But instead of protecting the health and well-being of Americans, all the government did was to bankrupt the nation financially and morally. Here we take a look at the impact the war on drugs has had on the American society since it was first launched in 1971.
Traffic engineers recently discovered that in the greater Chicago area, almost no one actually adheres to posted speed limits. In fact, they reported that in the first minute of their tests, “10 of 14 vehicles exceeded 70 mph. One reached 91 mph — all in a zone where the posted speed limit is 55 mph.”
It’s not hard to imagine that this is also the case in most parts of the United States. Most of us live by the “10 Mile” rule: we think it’s OK to drive about 10 miles over the [...]
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.

Whether you’re married, dating, separated, living together, or divorced, sexual intercourse with another person through the use of force or without their consent is illegal in the state of North Carolina. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had intercourse with them previously – you must have their consent to have intercourse with them each time.
This type of situation often comes into play with marital rape. In North Carolina, it is a crime that can carry with it severe penalties. Don’t assume that a partner or former partner can be coerced or forced [...]
Anyone under the age of 21 in North Carolina is not of legal age to consume alcohol, but that doesn’t mean that they refrain from drinking. Unfortunately, some underage drinkers not only break the law by imbibing alcohol in the first place – some take it one step further by driving after they’ve ingested alcohol.
You may think that underage drinkers who get behind the wheel face the same consequences as anyone else in North Carolina getting busted for a DUI, but that’s not the case at all. In fact, there are some [...]
Any type of conviction can be a stain on your criminal record, but some criminal convictions come with added obstacles – like impacting your right to own a gun.
When it comes to domestic violence in North Carolina, you could be looking at more than jail time and fines for a conviction. If you are found guilty of an offense of domestic violence in the state, then North Carolina law says you can’t obtain a gun permit. And federal law has the same restrictions.
Even for misdemeanor offenses, your second amendment rights can [...]
