You need experienced, knowledgeable attorneys on your side to fight hard for you—minimizing any punishment you may receive and helping you regain your driving privileges.

Let Asheboro attorneys Dodge & Altamura do everything they can to show mitigating circumstances, reduce your punishment, and restore your license.
- Larceny: North Carolina does not distinguish between grand larceny and petty larceny; rather, shoplifting, theft, embezzlement, credit card fraud, possession of stolen property, and breaking and entering all fall under the umbrella of “theft crimes.” Since 1999, Dodge and Altamura has been defending against the full range of North Carolina felony and misdemeanor theft charges. Whether negotiating a plea deal or defending in court, our committed, seasoned attorneys will protect your rights from the moment you are charged until the case is resolved.
- Assault and Battery: In North Carolina, assault and battery misdemeanors include simple assault, assault and battery, and affray, which is a fight in a public place. Felony or Class A1 misdemeanor charges may be levied for assault with a deadly weapon, assault resulting in serious injury, domestic violence, and assault against specific victims (women, state or school employees, and sports officials). Many mitigating factors can influence the outcome of assault and battery charges; that’s why it’s crucial to hire an experienced, driven criminal attorney who can confidently navigate the North Carolina criminal justice system. If you’ve been charged with an assault and battery crime, don’t take a chance: call the attorneys at Dodge & Altamura as soon as possible.
- Drug Charges: Drug charges include possession, constructive possession, possession with intent to sell, trafficking, and manufacturing. How you may be charged for one of these depends on the amount and type of drugs found; not all drugs are created equal! If you are charged with a drug crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to provide the best protection possible. Dodge & Altamura understand North Carolina’s drug laws down to the smallest intricacy, and they will use their knowledge to help you navigate the criminal justice system and get your life back.
- Probation Violations: Breaking the terms of your probation can seem all too easy to do. That’s why the attorneys at Dodge & Altamura are experienced at telling your side of the story and minimizing the consequences. North Carolina probation violations include failing to check in with a probation officer, failing to find employment, associating with known felons, committing a crime while on probation, failing to comply with a court order, and failing a drug test (or failing to submit to a drug test). Dodge & Altamura attorneys are your allies in court; they tell your side of the story, providing the circumstances that mitigate the punishment.
