I fully understand the penalties, both legal and financial, associated with each criminal law case I encounter in Statesville, NC.
Facing criminal charges can be intimidating, frustrating, and confusing, especially if you are unfamiliar with how criminal proceedings work on both the state and federal level. W. Sloan Goforth, Attorney at Law is here to guide you throughout the duration of any criminal proceedings you are expected to attend while also ensuring that your legal rights and best interests are protected.
There are several specific areas of criminal law that I practice in Statesville, North Carolina and the surrounding area. These include assault and battery charges, drug charges, DWI offenses, juvenile law matters, probation violations, and sexual offenses. I fully understand the penalties, both legal and financial, associated with each criminal law case I encounter, and if a conviction is inevitable, I will work diligently to reduce the charges made against you or have them dismissed.
For example, if you were charged for drinking and driving, it is important to keep in mind that a conviction carries serious consequences, such as a hefty fine, loss of driving privileges, increased car insurance rates, community service and time in jail. The penalties increase with each DWI offense. If you are a separated or divorced parent, child custody and visitation may be in jeopardy.
As a tenacious lawyer who specializes in criminal law, I realize that it is my job to put the prosecution’s evidence to the test, make sure that all of your constitutional rights are protected and raise all possible defenses.
