Traffic Tickets. Accepting responsibility for a traffic ticket as charged raises insurance rates and can even suspend your license. TCDG negotiates with the District Attorney’s office to avoid these unwanted outcomes. Learn more.

Misdemeanor Charges. Whether misdemeanor drug possession, misdemeanor violent crime, or misdemeanor weapon charge, a misdemeanor charge is a serious matter. A conviction can be punishable by up to 150 days in jail. Moreover, a conviction causes complications with employment, housing, and school. One facing a misdemeanor should not proceed on their own. Learn More.
Felony Charges. Felony charges have original jurisdiction in Superior Court. After the charge by law enforcement, a grand jury indicts the defendant into Superior Court. Charges may be resolved before undergoing indictment. It is imperative to act fast with an effective defense strategy when facing any felony charge. Supervised probation or incarceration becomes a real possibility with felony charges.
Drug Charges. North Carolina classifies drug charges primarily by weight. Possession of certain controlled substances, such as cocaine, yields a felony charge regardless of weight. High weights of a drug lead to felony charges alleging intent to sell or deliver. The actual sale or delivery of any drug is a felony, regardless of weight.
