"Drug charges are aggressively pursued in Cumberland County NC. Our goal as defense lawyers is help you understand your legal rights and options."

The consequences of a conviction extend beyond a criminal record and probation.

A conviction can affect your future, your ability to get certain jobs, find housing, and provide for your family.

Of course, that’s on top of the possibility of a prison term, probation, court costs, fines, and treatment, depending on the type of charges and your prior criminal record.

That’s especially true for felony charges.

Even a minor weed conviction (simple possession of marijuana) or a criminal record for possession of drug paraphernalia or “PDP” can be difficult to explain on a job application.
