Greensboro, North Carolina Criminal Lawyer

Criminal Lawyer

Individuals who come into contact with the criminal justice system as a result of being charged with a felony or misdemeanor should seek quality, experienced legal counsel. Regardless of guilt, defendants need an attorney who has extensive experience in representing clients in the courtroom.

While self-representation and public defenders may be a necessary option for some, the Ivey McClellan criminal lawyers simply have the time, experience, and resources necessary to build a proper defense. A criminal lawyer from Ivey McClellan represents clients in criminal cases involving misdemeanors and felonies with extensive experience on both the state and federal levels.

Ivey McClellan Criminal Defense Practice Areas

The criminal lawyers at Ivey McClellan are led by years of experience, familiarity with courtroom proceedings, and a thorough understanding of state and federal criminal statutes. Our criminal defense attorneys represent individuals charged with a felony and/or misdemeanor offense in the state of North Carolina. Our legal defense specialties include:


Also known as Driving Under The Influence or Drinking While Impaired, DUI/DWI charges have serious consequences including exorbitant fines and prison sentences. Some individuals may be at risk for negative immigration status impacts. A conviction may also result in license suspension.

Drug Trafficking, Possession, and Other Drug Charges

Serious drug charges such as drug manufacturing, intent to sell, or possession can lead to hefty prison times or possibly a life sentence.

Violent Crimes

Murder, aggravated assault, manslaughter, and other major felony charges (including some sex crimes) are incredibly serious offenses which can result in life in prison.

Weapons Charges

A weapons offense such as illegal possession of a firearm, illegal distribution of weapons, or fraudulent possession of a weapons permit requires a solid criminal defense strategy to avoid prison or jail time.

Probation Violations

Individuals who purposefully violate or break the terms and conditions of their probation (e.g. not reporting to a probation officer, not appearing in court, using drugs, etc.) may face jail time and high penalty fees.

Theft Charges

Individuals may be sentenced to jail or even prison time if convicted of a  theft charge including larceny, embezzlement, fraud, or robbery/burglary.

The above criminal charges can lead to serious penalties involving incarceration and fines, and a lifetime of other consequences. Our criminal defense lawyers believe that everyone accused of a crime is entitled to a presumption of innocence prior to a determination of guilt and conviction. If an individual already has a criminal record, our criminal defense attorneys may be able to assist with expunging or appealing the conviction in an appellate court.
