Armed Robbery: This crime involves the use of a lethal weapon, such as a gun, while committing a robbery. If accused of armed robbery or burglary, effective representation by an experienced attorney is crucial.

Fraud: This crime involves the intentional deception or the distortion of truth with the goal of acquiring an unfair advantage or inflicting harm to another person. Fraud can exist in different forms such as identity theft, insurance fraud, or securities fraud. Convictions may lead to criminal and civil penalties, including fines, imprisonment, and restitution.

Assault and Battery: This category includes violent crimes like physical attacks, scuffles, and incidents of domestic violence. Representation by an attorney who has worked as a prosecutor, like Attorney Patrick Roberts, can provide a deep understanding of the legal intricacies related to assault and battery cases.

Murder or Manslaughter Charges: These crimes are serious offenses that involve the intentional or unintentional act of taking another person’s life. When facing these types of allegations, it is vital to have representation from attorneys who understand the gravity of the situation and will fervently defend your rights.

White-Collar Crime: This includes crimes like embezzlement, structuring, money laundering, and securities fraud. Embezzlement is the act of illegally taking money entrusted to you. Structuring is the act of intentionally arranging financial transactions to escape reporting requirements. Money laundering refers to the method of concealing the origins of ill-gotten money. Securities fraud involves deceptive activities in the financial market.

We Fight For You

Attorney Patrick Roberts has secured the reduction* of felony charges to misdemeanors by leveraging his experience and understanding of the North Carolina criminal defense system. He relies on negotiations with prosecutors, plea deals, and pretrial motions to seek favorable outcomes for our clients. However, where those efforts are unsuccessful, Mr. Roberts is a skilled trial lawyer who is unafraid to tackle tough cases in the courtroom.

State v. B.S.: Not Guilty Verdict in First Degree Murder Case

Our client faced allegations of First Degree Murder related to a “drive by” shooting incident in Charlotte, NC. Despite the presence of GPS ankle monitoring evidence and a confession made in jail, we successfully persuaded the entire jury to reach a unanimous verdict of Not Guilty for our client. Consequently, he was released from jail on the very same day of the trial.

State v. I.R.: Reduction from First Degree Murder to Involuntary Manslaughter and Concealment of Death

After conducting a thorough investigation and consulting with a toxicology skilled, we successfully managed to reduce our client’s charges of First Degree Murder, which involved a drug overdose resulting in the death of a young lady. As a result, the case was resolved with a negotiated sentence of 5 years in prison, taking into account the time already served by our client.
