A Diligent And Dedicated Defender

Helping Defend You Against Drug-Related Charges

Are you facing a drug-related criminal charge in North Carolina? If so, I can help protect you from the consequences of a drug crime conviction. I’m not only committed to doing everything possible to keep my clients out of jail or prison, but I also advise them about the best ways to avoid the creation of a criminal record, to take advantage of diversion and treatment programs, and to protect their academic standing or professional license.

To learn how you can benefit from my experience with both felony and misdemeanor drug charges, discuss your case with me, a seasoned criminal trial lawyer, today.

Experienced, Determined Legal Guidance

While our first objective is to defeat your charges by suppressing the evidence against you or convincing the government of its inability to prove the offense beyond a reasonable doubt, our experience in pretrial diversion, alternative sentencing and expungement can present a significant advantage whenever the facts indicate that a defense on the merits just won’t work.

When Do I Need An Attorney?

People should hire an attorney when facing any type of drug charge in order to protect themselves and their rights. Our counsel can benefit local residents, college students, out-of-state motorists and anyone else facing drug crime charges involving:

  • Possession of marijuana, the consequences of which vary, but can include prison time and/or fines
  • Possession of cocaine that can result in a $2,000 fine and/or up two years in prison
  • Possession of heroin, which can result in prison time of up to five years
  • Possession of meth, also can result in prison time up to five years
  • Possession of illegal prescription drugs which can result in prison time or fines
  • Drug trafficking charges, which have mandatory active sentences, even if you are a first-time offender
  • Possession with intent to distribute based on packaging materials, scales or large amounts of cash
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession charges based on drugs found in a traffic stop

At Nixon Law Offices, PA, I will take the time to sit down with you and explain your legal options. I have a strong reputation for success at trial and in finding favorable alternatives to the criminal justice system, especially in cases involving simple possession or first-time offenders.

Are You A College Student? If So, A Drug Conviction Can Put Your Future At Risk

Depending on the facts of your case, and the quantity of the drug involved, even a first offense can result in a long prison sentence, so you need to contact me today. College students in particular must act quickly as a drug crime conviction may impact their ability to obtain financial aid – putting their future at risk in the process.

No matter the circumstances, I can help you understand the risks you face and give you the information you need to pursue the most promising strategy. I assist students from all nearby schools, including High Point University, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro College and Guilford College.
