Criminal defense is a constitutional right. If you have been charged with a crime in North Carolina, you always have the right to an attorney, and you have the right to remain silent. You don't have to discuss the crime in question or your whereabouts at the time of a crime without an attorney present. Take advantage of these rights. Doing so will help you avoid costly mistakes that could severely damage your case and your future.
I am Asheville criminal law attorney Justin Sigmon, and I am prepared to represent your best interests. I offer aggressive defense, tactical negotiation and informative representation. As my client, I will keep you in the loop throughout the duration of your case. I am available and responsive to you when you need me, and I help you make informed decisions.
Former Public Defender | Best Possible Outcomes In Negotiation Or At Trials
As a former public defender, I have the opportunity to serve the community in a way many lawyers cannot. I maintain close ties with the public defender's office and with the prosecutors who represent the county or state. I am familiar with the tactics that will be used against you, and I know how to counter them.
Most cases are either dismissed or end in a plea bargain, but successfully negotiating the final outcome is just as challenging as poking holes in the prosecution's case at trial. In any situation, your case demands the representation of an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer.
I handle a variety of cases in Asheville and surrounding areas, and I focus on the following areas of practice:
- Traffic violations
- Drug offenses
- Assault and domestic violence
- White collar crime
- Weapons offenses
- License suspension
- Probation violations
Proactive Legal Protection
Criminal convictions and even traffic tickets can have profound consequences. I thoroughly defend you in North Carolina courts, and I independently investigate your case. When the case warrants it, I collaborate with experts in the fields of criminal psychology, forensic psychology, medicine, accident reconstruction, forensic accounting, narcotics, weapons and police procedure.
I will steer your case in the right direction and handle all legal aspects of your case with thorough due diligence. My devotion to your best possible outcome can provide you and your family with increased peace of mind and legal protection.
