Jacksonville Criminal Defense Attorney

Who is looking out for you following an arrest for a crime? Police officers will try to get information by encouraging you to be cooperative. Prosecutors will attempt to convince you that a plea bargain is in your best interests.

North Carolina Criminal Defense Attorneys

Before you cooperate or speak to anyone, make a telephone call to the Jacksonville criminal defense attorneys at Gaylor, Edwards & Vatcher PA As your dedicated legal advocates, we look out for your best interests, speak on your behalf.

Specific areas of our criminal defense practice include the following:

  • Felony/Misdemeanor Charges — Crimes include narcotics violations, breaking and entering, larceny, shoplifting and various other offenses.
  • Traffic Violations — Some attorneys continually access data on recent traffic violations and the individuals ticketed for mass mailings. We take a more personalized approach. First, we do not send out letters to prospective clients. Clients who contact our firm get individualized representation. There is no such thing as a minor traffic violation when low insurance rates and a driver's license can become a thing of the past.
  • DWI & Driver's License Restoration — Area residents face jail time, fines, driver's license suspension and increased insurance rates. Military personnel serving at local bases could see their career come to an end. While DWI cases are challenging, we help to overcome obstacles our clients face, which includes having their driver's license restored.

Expungements — A youthful indiscretion leading to a criminal conviction can follow you throughout your academic or career pursuits. Staying out of trouble for a certain amount of time shows the courts that the behavior was an aberration. We tell your story to a District Attorney and pursue expungement, allowing you to get on with your life. In addition to the above areas of practice, we also represent clients charged with assault and battery, breaking and entering, and drug offenses.
