If you are under investigation by law enforcement or have been charged with a criminal offense, step one is making sure you have a tough, proven criminal defense lawyer fighting to protect your rights, your good name, and your future. At Marcilliat & Mills PLLC, we combine a willingness to fight with decades of experience in criminal law.

Drug Trafficking

These devastating charges require a defense from an attorney with extensive drug crimes defense experience. Law enforcement organizations will spare no expense building a case to pursue these charges. A conviction can result in prison time and harsh fines, with a federal drug trafficking conviction resulting in draconian mandatory minimum sentences. The more time that passes, the greater the likelihood others will make a deal that leaves you behind bars. The time to talk to an attorney is now.

Statutory Sex Offenses

Being convicted of a sex crime will be the end of your life as you know it. Once the fines are paid and the prison time is served, you will still be haunted by the specter of a criminal record and registration as a sex offender. Your name on the sex offender registry will be like a scarlet letter that limits where you can live, where you can work, and how you are viewed by your community. We will fight to make sure your side of the story is heard and that you are innocent until proven guilty of offenses such as rape, sexual assault, child molestation, and possession of child pornography.

Statutory Rape

“I thought she was 18” is not going to fly in court. If that is your only defense, you better start getting used to the idea of wearing an orange jumpsuit for the foreseeable future. Your best option is to zip your lips and let an experienced criminal defense lawyer handle your defense.

First Degree Murder

Serious charges require a serious defense. First degree murder charges literally make your defense a life or death issue. First degree murder is punishable by the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole. We provide a thorough, tenacious defense against first degree murder charges everywhere in North Carolina. You can rely on our team to devote the appropriate resources and energy to your defense.
