Charged With Disorderly Conduct? Resisting Arrest?
Our attorneys know from many years’ experience that you could be facing a charge of disorderly conduct, resisting a public officer, or something similar due to a wide range of circumstances. While these are serious misdemeanor charges that could result in large fines and jail time, it is important to know that we are often capable of helping the people we represent avoid harsh consequences and a permanent criminal record.
Led by 20-year lawyer Christina Rivenbark, our firm has earned a reputation for hard work and integrity in the district courts throughout southeastern North Carolina. Once we know what happened, we can present options that help you decide whether to have us negotiate with the prosecutor for a manageable outcome or take your case to trial and target an acquittal.
