Dare County Criminal Lawyer

Words From Your Dare County Criminal Defense Attorney

No one expects to be arrested or accused of a crime, it is a frightening and unpleasant experience. If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to understand what to expect. A criminal defense attorney will decide on the best approach based on the specifics of your case.

Were you pulled over and given a DWI, or did you get in a fight that ended in an assault charge? Either way, you want answers about what could happen to you. Donahue Defense is here when you need us. Our firm’s only focus is to defend the accused in the northeast part of North Carolina. We don’t believe in dabbling in defense work, it is all we do.

A local attorney who frequents the criminal court where you have been charged can know the judges and how to work the system to get you the best deal. Which is important in cases where the judges have a lot of discretion and can be critically important to know how a judge is likely to respond to certain arguments.

Call Donahue Defense if you are in need of a bona fide defense lawyer to assist you for state accusations in the NC district and superior courts or for federal cases in the US District Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina.
