If you have been arrested or are under investigation for alleged criminal activity, there are two very important things to keep in mind:
- Do not panic.
- Do not speak to police investigators before consulting with your own defense lawyer. REGARDLESS of what they tell you, if you are under arrest or under investigation, they are not your friend, and they are not there to help you but will often say that they are.

Experienced Asheville Area Criminal Defense Attorney
A criminal arrest is a frightening experience, and there is much at stake. A seemingly minor crime can carry heavy consequences, including a permanent mark on your criminal record. For more serious crimes, the consequences are that much greater, and could include years, even decades in prison.
Many lawyers advertise experience but never be afraid to ask the lawyer you are consulting with his or her experience in the type of case you are involved in. Al Messer not only has represented thousands of people, but has the actual hands-on trial experience in First Degree Murder (death penalty and non-death penalty), rape, child sex offenses, embezzlement, theft, drug trafficking, DWI, assault and many more.
Our approach to criminal law is thorough and aggressive. We will scrutinize every piece of evidence to expose weaknesses in the prosecution's case against you. We will aggressively fight for the most favorable outcome, whether it is dismissal of charges, reduced charges, alternative sentencing or acquittal by jury.
Mr. Messer quotes his fee on a case-by-case basis. He understands that the cost of an attorney is an expense that you weren't planning on. Fees will be discussed and in many situations Mr. Messer will try to work with clients on a fee and payment plan.
