Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with or are under investigation for a felony or misdemeanor criminal offense, you need to be sure to stand up for your rights.  We can help you understand what you are and are not entitled to.  Whether you are facing an assault charge, a larceny charge, a drug charge, a conspiracy charge or another criminal offense, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer / attorney to help you through the process.

You may be scared, mad, or even depressed about charges you are facing.  Our criminal defense attorneys will help you through the process and take care of everything.  You should be comfortable that your criminal defense attorney is fighting for your rights with zealous advocacy, and we strive to to just that.  Many people think they understand the criminal process, but far too often they are mistaken about critical points of law.  The defense of a criminal case can be completely ineffective if you don't assert your legal rights.  Only you or your lawyer are charged with upholding your rights, so if you don't have a knowledgable and experienced criminal defense lawyer, you may be giving away far more than you realize.

Too many people think that the truth will somehow simply work itself out, however without proper representation you could end up in jail for a crime you didn't commit.  If you've been charged with a crime, you need our help.  CONTACT the criminal defense lawyers in our office in Mooresville NC now for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.

what you could waive without knowing

If you don't assert your rights, they may be waived.  Even for a right as fundamental as your right to a speedy trial, if you don't assert it early and often, it could be deemed to have been waived.  If you don't assert your right to a formal arraignment in a felony charge, you could shorten your time to assert certain defenses.  If you don't formally request discovery from the State and the State then fails to provide you evidence relating to your case, or if you fail to object to violations of your rights at a criminal trial, you could be deemed to have waived those rights.

Many people are unaware that they may be entitled to have their charges dismissed by the court in exchange for an agreement to complete a probationary period and some relatively minimal additional terms.  You could waive this and other rights if you agree to plead guilty without our help and fail to request it.

The requirements to protect your rights in a criminal case require a knowledgable and experienced NC criminal defense lawyer.  Don't waive your criminal defense rights. We can help.  Contact us now at our Mooresville NC Office.

reviewing the evidence

The discovery, which is the documents, reports and other evidence the state has against you, received from the State can be confusing and overwhelming in a felony criminal case.  On a felony charge, the State may provide a large volume of documents and recordings in electronic or other format.  If you don't know what to look for, you could be waiving additional rights to object to the use of that evidence, which could be to your great detriment in a criminal trial.

Criminal Defense Attorneys at Ray A Hayes II PA know how to read police reports, what to look for in videos and audio recordings, how to be sure the evidence is properly authenticated at trial, what should be provided in the event something is left out, and generally how to review the evidence provided by the State in anticipation of a criminal trial.

contact us

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you need a good criminal defense attorney to preserve your rights.  Don't be convicted for a crime you didn't commit and don't be convicted where the State has a weak or non-existant case against you and don't be treated more harshly than others in your situation.  CONTACT the criminal defense lawyers in our office in Mooresville NC today for a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.
