Aggressive Defense For Your Criminal Case

The lawyers at Bull & Reinhardt PLLC defend individuals charged with all types of criminal offenses — from misdemeanors to serious felonies — in both state and federal courts across all of western North Carolina. We are admitted to practice in all courts in Western North Carolina and we are familiar with the procedures and court rules that govern cases in all these jurisdictions.

Our comprehensive understanding of criminal law allows us to aggressively defend the rights of those charged with crimes such as:

Skilled Drug Charge Defense Attorneys

Our approach to these and all other criminal allegations is to minimize the consequences and overall impact that these charges have on your life. We make every effort to have charges dismissed or reduced without a lengthy trial and use our proven negotiation and trial strategies to minimize the penalties you face. In cases where the prosecution has failed to satisfactorily negotiate, we don't hesitate to engage in litigation to defend you and your rights. Above all, it is our goal to protect your rights and to keep you free.

It is imperative if you are under investigation or think you may be charged with an offense, of any nature, to contact an experienced criminal attorney immediately to insure your rights are protected. The jails and prisons are full of people who may not be there if they had the services and advice of a skilled criminal defense attorney before speaking with the police.

Our services are not limited to negotiation and courtroom representation; as a part of our commitment to meeting all the needs of our criminal defense clients, we help clients obtain bonds, deal with bench warrants, resolve licensure issues, represent in DMV hearings and defend their interests at parole and probation violation hearings.

We Support Area Students

It is especially important to obtain criminal defense representation if you are a student — or are the parent of a student — who has been charged with a crime or faces school disciplinary actions. Conviction for any type of crime, including marijuana, fighting, shoplifting, sexual assault, and other charges that are commonly targeted against college students, can cause irreparable damage to your education, reputation, and your future. You face not only jail time and a criminal record that will follow you around for the rest of your life but also disciplinary action or expulsion from your school. Most institutions have provisions dealing with legal representation at disciplinary actions and unfortunately, many prohibit an attorney being present at the disciplinary hearing.

However, it is important to consult with legal counsel prior to participation in a disciplinary hearing as statements made at the disciplinary hearing could be used against the student and lead to subsequent criminal charges, not to mention the disciplinary actions become part of the student's permanent transcriptions and will be provided to other educational institutions.

If you are the parent of a student who has been charged with a crime or faces a school disciplinary action, it is important to contact us before your son or daughter speaks with law enforcement, campus security, or school officials. We can ensure that your child is treated fairly and that his or her educational, legal, and constitutional rights are not violated.
