Charges of white collar crime are a threat to your freedom

If you are under investigation for any type of white collar crime, you may be unsure of what you should do or not cognizant of the serious nature of your current situation. White collar crimes are federal charges that can include various types of illegal behavior. If under investigation in North Carolina, facing allegations or already charged, you have no time to lose in protecting your interests.

Just because it's a Breathalyzer doesn't mean it's accurate

Most of the dorm rooms and campuses at University of North Carolina, Warren Wilson, South College and other schools in surrounding regions are all but empty as summer breaks continue. Come August, many students will begin moving their things into the homes-away-from-home as they gear up for another post-secondary school year. Along with those arrivals comes a lot of socializing. Along with a lot of socializing typically comes one or more traffic stops on suspicion of drunk driving.

Seizing opportunities to challenge faulty vehicle searches

If you're one of many North Carolina college students who just rocked their final exams and are excited to finally be winding down another school semester, you may also be one of many who have plans to hit the beach in celebration of a successful academic year. Traffic on state highways is often heavy in early June due to many out-of-state visitors heading to the Outer Banks and other scenic regions for vacations. You're undoubtedly already aware of the need to drive safely.

Under representation could impact your underage drinking case

As a young college student, you undoubtedly want to do your best to find your way in life as you head out on your own, likely for the first time. Because many individuals in your situation want to fit in as best they can, sometimes you may not make the best decisions. Though the majority of these decisions likely do not have lasting or seriously negative impacts, one wrong choice could potentially land you in legal trouble.

Could expungement change your life for the better?

Though getting arrested and having charges filed against you does not necessarily mean you will face a conviction, the charges themselves could still remain on your record. You may feel as if these charges have haunted you for years, as marks with any relation to criminal activity could affect various areas of your life. If you miss out on a job, place of residence or any other type of opportunity due to an arrest or conviction, you may wonder whether you could ever get out from under the indiscretion.
