Welcome to Our Greenville, North Carolina, Criminal Defense Blog
If you have been charged with a crime, you want an experienced attorney to protect your constitutional rights, one who knows and understands both sides of the law, and who can anticipate the strategies prosecutors will employ to seek a conviction. The criminal process can be confusing and intimidating, with its own language and set of rules. You want a lawyer who has successfully protected the rights of others in situations like yours.
At the law office of Matthew J. Davenport, we offer extensive experience on both sides of a criminal prosecution. Before setting up our practice, Matt Davenport worked in the Pitt County prosecutor’s office, where he trained many of the prosecutors practicing today. With office just blocks from East Carolina University, we provide comprehensive counsel to many students and other members of the university community.
Our Criminal Defense Blog
This blog was set up to provide useful information to people throughout the Greenville area who have questions or concerns about criminal law matters. We will post articles to the blog on a regular basis, addressing a wide range of topics, including:
- Underage drinking and related offenses. We handle all matters related to underage drinking, including minors in possession and underage DWI. We also handle any other charges that might arise, including public intoxication, resisting arrest, using a fake ID or violation of open container laws. We also protect the rights of people who have refused to take a breath test.
- First offense DWI. North Carolina has a zero tolerance policy regarding underage DWI. You may be stopped and charged with drunk driving simply because the police officer claims to smell alcohol on your breath. We will help you protect your rights and ensure that you are not treated like a hardened criminal.
- The driver’s license suspension process. We handle the administrative proceeding to determine the status of your driving privileges.
- Vehicular assault
We encourage you to actively participate in this blog. Please post any questions, concerns or comments you have about any subject matter discussed here.
