Surry County Felony Defense

North Carolina's criminal laws designate a vast number of offenses as felonies. The structured sentencing laws have a complex grid for determining the range of potential sentences if a conviction is entered. The state recognizes 10 levels of felony charges, ranging from a class A felony as the most serious to a class I felony. In any felony case, the stakes are high.

If you have been arrested, charged or are under investigation for a felony offense, you have many decisions to make. The best decision you can make at the outset is to retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your interests and guard your rights.
