Former Police...
Now North Carolina Criminal Defense Attorney

Our North Carolina criminal defense attorneys handle misdemeanor, felony, DWI and juvenile cases throughout Charlotte and surrounding counties.

Our staff of North Carolina criminal lawyers includes former police officers. Together with our private investigators, we work as a team, drawing on more than quarter century of law enforcement experience.

We know firsthand how cops put together cases. We used to be in their shoes. We have the playbook. Now we use this insider knowledge to your advantage in fighting your criminal charges.

Private Defense Investigation by Former Police

Make no mistake. Cops concern themselves mainly with aiding the prosecution and building up a case against you. They should not be relied upon to gather favorable evidence that helps exonerate their suspect. They are not on your side.

Our private defense investigators are former police officers. But now their job is to find the evidence that will benefit you. We assign them to re-interview and locate witnesses, to canvass neighborhoods, to obtain surveillance tapes, to do background checks on key prosecution witnesses, and to locate evidence to corroborate our client's version of the events.

Close Personal Contact with Your Attorney

Facing criminal charges traumatizes people. Nothing compounds the stress more than the inability to reach your attorney.

At the Mackey Law Offices, PLLC, we put a premium on the accessibility of our Charlotte criminal defense lawyers and support staff. We're here to provide moral and emotional support as well as legal representation. To do this, we observe two policies:

  1. Every client phone call, email or text is returned the same day; and

  2. Every client gets the personal cell phone number of his/her attorney.

Not only does this provide you the assurance of knowing you can reach your lawyer at critical times. It also helps us to do our job more effectively.

We find that close client interaction is pivotal to our work. Our clients are the best resource for understanding what happened and who the key players are in the case. We want to hear from you, and you'll definitely be hearing from us as together we map out the story and put together the best defense possible.

Types of Cases We Handle.

North Carolina DWI Defense Lawyer

Our North Carolina DWI defense attorneys are former  law enforcement officers with decades of experience both prosecuting and defending drunk driving cases.

North Carolina Domestic Violence Charges

More people get wrongfully accused of domestic violence than any other type of crime. Sometimes a person strikes their spouse by accident or in self-defense during a mutual struggle.

Other times the accuser lies to the police and makes up false allegations of abuse. Accusers fabricate stories out of anger or jealousy, or to gain the upper hand in divorce or child custody proceedings. Whatever the case, our Charlotte criminal attorneys can help you fight back.

We defend clients against any accusations of domestic violence, spousal battery or spousal abuse, in particular

North Carolina Drug Crimes Charges

Police frequently use unreliable informants, defective warrants and other illegal methods to make drug busts. Our Charlotte, North Carolina criminal lawyers can challenge these unconstitutional searches and search warrants in an effort to get evidence and cases thrown out of court.

We represent clients in all misdemeanor or felony narcotics charges.

North Carolina Sex Crimes Charges

Conviction for a criminal sex offense can lead to years in North Carolina State Prison getting ostracized from the community, and having to register for life as a sex offender. But many innocent people get falsely accused of sex crimes, especially date rape, lewd acts with a child, and sexual assault.

Our Charlotte criminal defense lawyers start by scrutinizing the accuser's background. We look to see if the accuser has a history of telling lies, and a bias against our client. We independently investigate the case with our own private investigators. Often times we can get charges reduced or dismissed, or secure an acquittal at trial.

We defend against all sex crimes charges.

North Carolina Violent Crimes Charges

Prosecutors and judges take violent crimes the most seriously. North Carolina's sentencing laws can lead to harsh prison sentences.

But many people accused of violent offense are truly innocent. Often the situation arose out of self-defense, accident, misidentification, false accusations or mental illness. Our Charlotte criminal attorneys can help you explore these defenses and fight the charges.
