Lawyer Here For You When You Face Felony Charges

Felony charges bring the possibility of serious legal consequences, including prison time and a criminal record. You need to explore every opportunity to reduce or dismiss the charges from the outset.

If you face felony charges, criminal defense lawyer James Borden, in Greensboro, can diligently and knowledgeably advocate for your rights. Your defense starts in district court, which screens cases to determine which will go to Superior Court. We can argue to reduce the charges and potential sentence, and keep your case in district court. But even if the evidence against you is strong, we can provide an aggressive defense in Superior Court and hold the prosecution to their burden of proof.

The Sort Of Felony Defense Representation We Provide

We can defend you against a range of serious felony charges such as:

  • Drug charges, including drug possession and drug trafficking
  • White collar criminal charges, including check forgery, embezzlement and fraud
  • Felony-level theft charges, including employee theft or shoplifting
  • Violent crime charges, including murder, rape and assault

If negotiations and plea bargaining with prosecutors offer your best chance of avoiding incarceration, we can argue substitute probation or house arrest. In a recent case, our client faced felony charges involving marijuana possession. We succeeded in having the charges reduced to a misdemeanor, thus helping our client avoid jail time. We are also currently working to have his record expunged, so that the criminal conviction will no longer appear on his record.
