If you have been charged with a criminal offense, it is important to seek the advice and counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately to ensure your rights are protected.  Our criminal law attorneys handle cases in Oxford, NC, as well as Granville County, Vance County, Franklin County, Person and Warren County.  Many criminal offenses, even misdemeanors, can subject you to jail time.  Even if you do not receive active jail time, there are severe consequences to receiving a criminal conviction.  For example, a criminal conviction remains on your permanent record for life.  Also, convictions can limit your ability to get a job, rent an apartment, be approved for credit, and receive other valuable benefits and rights in our society.

At Wilkinson & Carpenter, P.A. we have extensive experience in the area of Criminal Law. We have represented people with offenses that range from first degree murder to littering to traffic law cases that fall into the criminal law category (for instance, excessive speed and DWI).  We take every case seriously and provide a vigorous defense to all cases.

We believe it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible when you have been charged or think you may be charged with a crime. Often, clients will make statements to the police that may be harmful to their case without first seeking the advice and counsel of an attorney.  Furthermore, over the years, we have heard defendants proclaim that they do not need an attorney because they are innocent.  If you are innocent and have been charged with a crime, you need an attorney more than anyone else, since you have been wrongly accused of something you did not do.

If we can be of service to you, please call our office to schedule your free consultation with a criminal defense attorney.
