Criminal Charges

In today’s society, it is more important than ever to keep your record as clear as possible. Let our experienced attorneys defend you.Employers, lenders, landlords, universities and others routinely use criminal background checks to screen applicants. A conviction on your record can limit your opportunities now and in the future. To minimize the consequences of your charge, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. For more than 30 years, we have been defending people facing criminal charges in Duplin County, Onslow County, Jones County, and Sampson County.

At Smith and Blizzard, P.A. we guarantee to take your case seriously. After a thorough investigation of the facts and research of the law, our attorneys will advise you of the reality of your situation and its probable outcome. If a fair offer is not made by the district attorney’s office, we will take your case to trial. Remember, you should not say anything to police or even to family members, as anything you say can and will be used against you when your case is heard in court.

We have the experience to provide you with assistance for ANY criminal charge. If you are a first-time offender, it may be possible to resolve the charges without the stigma of a criminal conviction. We also handle expungements of charges and records, so if you are asked on a job application if you have ever been arrested, you can answer “No.” You can read more about specific criminal charges such as DWI, Drug Charges, and Traffic Tickets by clicking the link below. You can also contact us if you want more information about your specific criminal charge.

DWI: Few people can afford to plead guilty to driving while intoxicated charges. The potential consequences such as incarceration, driver’s license suspension, job loss and high-risk auto insurance are simply too high.

Drug CrimesDrug convictions, whether felonies or misdemeanors, look terrible on your criminal record. Deferred prosecutions, meaning your record stays clean, is sometimes possible. Throwing out the evidence because of an illegal search is sometimes possible. Only a thorough investigation into each individual case by an experienced and determined attorney will obtain you the best possible results.

Traffic Tickets: Traffic tickets can add points to your driving record, leading to higher insurance rates and possible driver’s license suspension. In many cases, we can negotiate outcomes that will not affect your license or insurance rates.
