Experienced Representation On Your Side

North Carolina only has one statute that covers most drug charges, so penalties are very specific to each case. That is why it is important to have an attorney on your side who has strategic negotiation skills and a comprehensive understanding of the justice system.

Attorney Michael D. Cleaves provides a strong defense if you are facing any drug charges, including:

  • Possession — This could lead to a significant fine and a misdemeanor charge.
  • Distribution — The charge depends on the type and amount of the drug.
  • Trafficking — Like distribution, this charge also depends on the type and amount of the drug. However, drug trafficking is more serious, and usually leads to a felony.
