Criminal Defense Attorneys in North Carolina

DWI — Traffic Violations — Felonies

At the Crowe Law Firm, in Beaufort, North Carolina, we have more than 30 years of combined experience protecting the rights of individuals throughout Carteret County. We are both former prosecutors who have dedicated our entire careers to criminal law. We have a comprehensive understanding of the laws, procedures and language of the criminal justice system, as well as the ways the state prepares and prosecutes a criminal case.

Though we know how to work cooperatively with police and prosecutors to resolve your problems, we are experienced trial lawyers who appear in court every day. When efforts to settle your problems amicably fail, we are always willing and able to fight for you before a judge and jury.

Our Practice

We focus our practice entirely on criminal defense, handling matters involving:

  • DWI or drunk driving. We handle all issues involved in a DWI prosecution, from the license suspension or revocation hearings at the DMV to the criminal proceedings to determine penalties. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the details of your arrest, making certain there was probable cause to stop your vehicle, that you were properly read your rights, and that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were correctly administered.
  • Traffic violations. We defend people charged with all types of moving violations, including speeding, reckless driving or operating a vehicle without a license. We do a lot of work helping people avoid license suspension or revocation, and we handle license restoration hearings.
  • Felony charges. We protect the rights of people charged with serious crimes, including grand theft or larceny, drug crimes, and violent offenses such as rape, assault, manslaughter or murder.
