Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys in the Eastern District of North Carolina

Statue of Justice - North Caroline Federal Criminal Defense

From our offices in Elizabeth City and Moyock, North Carolina, the federal criminal defense attorneys at The Twiford Law Firm represent clients on felony and misdemeanor charges in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Our attorneys handle matters at all federal courthouses in the Eastern District, including those in Elizabeth City, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, and Wilmington.

The federal criminal justice system is separate from the state system: different laws, court practices and rules apply. For these reasons, if you are facing a federal charge, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience in federal court and understands the federal rules and practices. Our federal criminal defense attorneys have the federal court knowledge and experience to vigorously represent and defend you.

We have decades of criminal defense experience in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Our federal criminal defense team also benefits extensively from the leadership of attorney H.P. Williams, Jr., who has served since 1995 on the Eastern District’s Criminal Justice Act Panel, a court-appointed panel that provides representation for indigent criminal defendants.

Our attorneys are experienced in handling the full range of federal criminal charges, including:

  • White collar crimes;
  • Firearms and weapons offenses;
  • Drug charges, such as possession and trafficking;
  • Conspiracies;
  • Felonies involving the Department of the Interior; Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives (ATF); Department of Homeland Security; and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Federal Criminal Laws and Regulations in North Carolina National Parks and Refuges

Our service area includes popular national recreation and protected areas, including:

  • Cape Hatteras National Seashore
  • Wright Brothers National Monument
  • Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge
  • Fort Raleigh National Historic Site

Visitors can face federal charges for violating laws and regulations that are enforced in those areas. Among the most common violations are fishing and hunting offenses and citations relating to driving vehicles on the beach. Our attorneys represent clients charged with those federal offenses, as well as all other federal violations that may occur in national parks and protected areas in northeastern North Carolina and the Outer Banks.
