As such, it makes sense to try to avoid a conviction if at all possible. Charlotte criminal defense lawyers do more than review discovery, take cases to trial, or argue motions. Indeed, a substantial part of our job is to consider options to avoid litigation and a criminal conviction by negotiating with the State (the District Attorney assigned to the matter).
If you’re facing a criminal offense, whether felony or misdemeanor charges, it’s understandable you might be anxious. The consequences of a conviction can be long-lasting and severe, making it hard to find and keep a good job. That’s especially true for larceny, crimes of “theft or dishonesty” and drug charges.
