Summary

I genuinely enjoy practicing law, meeting my clients, and doing my best to solve their problems. Each day brings a new face and a different challenge, and I am honored that I get to spend my days in my beloved hometown advocating for my neighbors. My focus is on traffic law and criminal defense in Bladen, Brunswick, and Columbus Counties, though I also handle 50-B and 50-C hearings for Domestic Violence Protective Orders. Additionally, my firm specializes in the mistreatment, serious personal injury, or wrongful death of inmates in North Carolina prisons and county jails. I am committed to learning something new every day, and I can honestly say that so far in my legal practice, I have done so.

Q. I was wondering if I could get a improper equipment if my child car seat wasn’t hooked properly in the car.?
A: I applaud your creative thinking! However, you might not even need to negotiate for an Improper Equipment. Depending on your charge and county, you may be eligible for a dismissal. In some counties in North Carolina, simply showing the DA that you have a proper car seat is enough to warrant a dismissal for Failure to Secure a Passenger Under the Age of 16. Speaking personally with the District Attorney's Office or hiring a lawyer to negotiate on your behalf are probably your two best options.
