Criminal Defense Attorneys in Winston-Salem, NC

From Misdemeanors to Felonies, We’re Here to Help

The criminal lawyers at Freedman, Thompson, Witt, Ceberio & Byrd, PLLC, agree that one of the top mistakes a suspect can make is to talk to a law enforcement officer or investigator without an attorney present. In almost any situation where criminal charges may be applied, it’s almost always better to refrain from speaking until you’ve spoken with a legal guide. Our criminal defense attorneys are highly reviewed in the realm of criminal defense, both locally and on the state/federal level. 

If you are under suspicion, were arrested, or have in any way been contacted in connection with a criminal investigation, talk to a criminal lawyer before talking to investigators or police. From a potential DWI to possible murder charges, our firm can work within the full gamut of criminal law cases. Contact us today to arrange a free consultation with an experienced attorney at our Winston-Salem office.

“Except for Miranda warnings, a law enforcement officer is under no obligation to inform you of your rights. Any statement you make to an officer without advice from your attorney may turn a winnable trial into a dead loser.”

Our Main Criminal Law Services

Below are the main criminal law services that we offer on the state and federal levels: 

  • DWI
  • State and federal drug crimes

  • Murder and vehicular homicide
  • Robbery, burglary, and theft

Some types of criminal cases—typically federal crimes, white-collar crimes, and murder and sex crimes—involve long, complex investigations. You may not realize you are a suspect until the case is well underway. If you have any reason to believe you are involved in a criminal case, you should seek legal advice immediately.

What To Do When Charged With A Crime

As stated earlier, the best thing you can do when suspected of or charged with a crime is to stay silent until you can speak with a criminal lawyer. Once you’ve spoken to an attorney, they will tell you what would be the best course of action for success. 

Once you’ve crafted a case with your attorney, it’s crucial that you stick to the advice offered by your legal representation.

Criminal cases, even more than other areas of law, can be subject to many variables in and outside our control. However, we can guarantee that our attorneys will fight diligently to secure the most favorable outcome in your case.
