Wake County Misdemeanors and Felonies

Criminal offenses are generally divided into two categories – misdemeanors and felonies. Kirk, Kirk, Howell, Cutler & Thomas can represent clients facing either of these types of charges.

Misdemeanors normally are less serious than felonies and carry penalties that are less severe. However, these charges should not be taken lightly and if convicted of a misdemeanor, an individual could face probation and a criminal record, which can hinder future employment.

Felony charges generally involve a more complex representation due to the possibility of jail time and the loss of rights resulting from a felony conviction.

Because of our law firm’s convenient location, all criminal offenses can be efficiently handled in Wake, Nash, Franklin, Johnston, and Wilson counties.

Featured Testimonial on a Criminal Law Case

criminal law attorney“It is easy (and important) to announce a not guilty verdict and have us all chime in on the victory. What is not easy but just as important is to recognize great work that still results in a guilty verdict. Last month, Jeff Cutler, a Wake County contracting attorney, tried a case in which his client was accused of two murders. His client was 15 years old at the time of the crimes. The evidence was that the assailants were looking for some pay back against a rival gang. They shot up the house where the gang members once lived. Tragically, the new residents were a young couple and their children. The parents were killed. Jeff fought the good fight, cross-examined the informants mightily and gave great openings and closings.

After the jury found his client guilty, he then fought just as hard at the sentencing hearing that his client deserved a chance of parole one day. The judge sentenced his client to life.

I want to thank and recognize Jeff for working so hard for his client. And I thank all of you for the hard work you do every day.”
