Felony Charges


Felony Defense Attorneys in Eastern North Carolina

If you have been arrested and charged with a felony, or even think you are being investigated for a felony offense, you need a lawyer right now. It is never too early to ask questions and gain information.

Whether the allegations involve assault, murder, sex crimes or theft, it is not wise for you to attempt to handle your defense on your own. The legislature has set up significant penalties for felonies and the prosecution often seeks and gets maximum punishment. Everyone but you in the courtroom will know the rules and procedures that will be used to send you to prison.

At the law firm of Gerrans, Foster & Sargeant, PA, we have considerable experience defending clients against almost all felony charges. Our system places the burden of proof on the prosecutors and law enforcement to prove each and every element (or sub-part) of each crime charged beyond any and all reasonable doubts. Under our legal system, you are not guilty unless they can prove every element. We'll make them prove each element or dismiss when they cannot.

Before speaking to the police, get in touch with an attorney who has the ability to help you. Call 252.522.4500, or send us an e-mail to speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
