Criminal Defense Attorneys in South Carolina and North Carolina
A criminal charge is much different than a civil lawsuit. It’s not about money in criminal court. It’s about your freedom. Criminal cases can range from being relatively minor (traffic citation) to the most serious (murder). Most charges we handle are misdemeanors, but many misdemeanors can result in a permanent criminal record (DUI). Other charges start out as serious (felonies) and can result in time in jail or even prison. Regardless of the charge, we can help whether you have been charged with a traffic violation, a misdemeanor, or a felony. We can also represent you whether you have been arrested or charged in either South Carolina or North Carolina. Our criminal defense lawyers have varied backgrounds and experience. Tom Holland (licensed in South Carolina and Virginia) is a former South Carolina prosecutor who has over ten (10) years experience. Robert Reeves (licensed in South Carolina and North Carolina) is both a civil and criminal lawyer who focuses his criminal practice on DUI (SC) and DWI (NC) cases. And in our Charlotte office, Anthony Wayne (licensed in North Carolina) is our criminal lawyer in North Carolina who focuses his practice on DWI and DMV matters.
Each of our criminal defense attorneys is a trial lawyer and not afraid to fight in court. We can handle many cases independently. However, in particularly complex criminal cases, we form a team and combine our experiences. No matter how good any single lawyer may be, we believe that combined input and different perspectives can be very beneficial to the defense of a case. We will often seek advice and counsel in house in order to consider all angles of a charge and anticipated prosecution. By “brainstorming” a case, we can better prepare for and connect with the different perspectives that will be found in a jury. The group dynamic of a jury is an awesome and unique aspect to our system of justice. It is important to be able to answer as many different questions as we can expect to be asked.
