Violent crime attorneys

We at Dozier Miller believe that everyone deserves a skilled and thorough defense attorney who will exhaust all possible means in protecting your rights throughout a criminal investigation and trial.

The justice system is relentless in cracking down on violent crimes. No matter where you live, the punishments for violent crime charges are severe, with severe jail time possible. The effect a conviction can have on your life — your career, your family, your independence — is staggering.

North Carolina is historically tough in sentencing violent offenders in an effort to keep violent crime rates on the decline. Whether you’re falsely accused or not, you need a skilled, knowledgable attorney to protect your rights and help you reach the best possible conclusion in your case.

Common violent crime charges include assault, sexual assault and rape, kidnapping and domestic violence. If you’ve been accused of any of these crimes, consult one of our criminal defense lawyers immediately. It is not uncommon for innocent people to damage their cases by talking to police without the advice of a lawyer. Though the court system makes every attempt to correctly identify innocent and guilty parties, innocent people can be convicted due to mishandled defenses.

We at Dozier Miller believe that everyone deserves a skilled and thorough defense attorney who will exhaust all possible means in protecting your rights throughout a criminal investigation and trial. From turning a microscope on the investigator’s work to identifying potential errors and arguing for not guilty verdicts to negotiating sentencing and filing appeals, we’ll stay beside you for every possible step.

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS

When you’re faced with a traffic violation, pleading guilty and paying the fine may seem like the simplest and fastest path to resolution. It’s important to understand a guilty plea can result in more consequences than a simple fine.

DUI & DWI

Whether you were stopped on the way home after two drinks at happy hour or were involved in a traffic accident where alcohol was a factor, driving under the influence (DUI) charges are serious matters.

PROBATION VIOLATIONS

Being put on probation is an alternative to being put in jail — it’s a second chance. However, probation comes with rules and restrictions. If those rules are broken, there’s a risk of having probation revoked and being ordered to jail.

DRUG CRIMES

Conviction in drug crimes cases can have serious and permanent effects on your future, long after you’ve paid the steep fines or served time. If you’ve been arrested on drug possession, trafficking or manufacturing charges, it is critical that you contact an experienced drug crimes defense attorney.
