Charlotte Federal Court Trial Lawyers: Practice Areas

Federal Criminal Litigation: Traditional

Terpening Law has a rich and respected history of defending not only white collar criminal cases in Charlotte, but “traditional” or “street” crimes in federal court. Experience includes:

  • Federal drug conspiracies (methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, marijuana) in Charlotte federal court and Asheville federal court.
  • Hobbes Act (bank robbery).
  • Carjacking.
  • Kidnapping.
  • Firearm dealing and felon in possession gun charges.
  • Conspiracies.

Importantly, we will negotiate a successful plea agreement when that is in your best interest, but we have plenty of trial experience in federal court and we love to try a case when doing so is in the client’s best interest. 

Many federal criminal defense lawyers will groundlessly boast about how tough and aggressive they are with prosecutors. In contrast, we are proud of the fact that we are firm and competent, but collegial with local federal prosecutors and judges. We believe that a good, professional relationship – coupled with a strong work ethic, preparation, and experience – will do far more to get you a good result at trial or in negotiations that screaming and yelling will ever accomplish. 

Will Terpening has been board certified as a specialist in federal criminal law by the North Carolina Bar.
