Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a crime, you may be thinking one of two things: "I am guilty, what is a lawyer going to do for me?" or "I am innocent, why would I need an attorney?"

The answer is very simple: Following your arrest, the state prosecutor starts building a case against you. You need an equally powerful lawyer on your side to ensure that your rights are protected. While this may be your first brush with the law, at Melrose Law, we have handled thousands of criminal cases. We understand the law, and we know how to build a strong defense for you.

Powerful Criminal Defense Representation

Criminal charges come with very serious consequences. If you are convicted of a crime in North Carolina, you could be facing prison or jail time, large fines, loss of your driving privileges and lengthy probation. Even if you believe that you are guilty, you may still have powerful defenses available to you.

With more than 25 years of experience, Mark Melrose has handled virtually every type of criminal charge, including:

  • Felonies
  • Misdemeanors
  • Drug offenses
  • Sex crimes
  • Violent crimes
  • Murder

Attorney Mark R. Melrose will take the time to listen to your concerns and explain the law to you in language that you can understand. We know that law enforcement officers do not always perform their job correctly. We will review arrest records, evidence and video to see if your rights were violated or police errors were made. We will explore every applicable defense option for you, including illegal search and seizure, improper interrogation, police misconduct, lack of probable cause, failure to advise a Miranda warning and more.
