When you are facing a criminal charge in the state of North Carolina, you need to be prepared for your day in court, and the best way to be ready is by having a lawyer by your side. There is paperwork to be done, and courtroom personalities to cater to. You need help gathering evidence and preparing a defense. Having a lawyer is the smartest thing you can do when facing the possibility of a day in court.

Having a lawyer to mount a defense is a hallmark of your legal system that goes back to before we were an independent country. A great example of this is something you learned a bit about in American History class. Do you remember learning about the Boston Massacre?

To summarize: in 1770, a group of eight British soldiers was standing guard outside of a Customs House in Boston during a week of unrest. A crowd gathered around the soldiers and taunted them. A young man threw a snowball and the soldiers reacted by firing their muskets. Five citizens of Boston lost their lives and the British soldiers went on trial.

The leading defense lawyer of the day was a revolutionary but he had such conviction in the system of justice that was in place, upon which our American system is based, that he defends the soldiers. He believed deeply that everyone, everyone, deserves to have a defense mounted in their name. That lawyer’s name? John Adams: George Washington’s Vice-president and the second president of the US. This Founding Father knew what we know. Everyone deserves a defense.

We are proud to play a role in this tradition.
