Criminal Defense Attorneys Protecting Your Rights
Raising an effective defense in the Mecklenburg County, NC criminal courts
Miranda warnings inform you of your rights to remain silent and to have an attorney present during questioning. Exercise your constitutional rights. Before you speak to law enforcement, contact the Law Offices of Estwanik & May, PLLC. For 12 years, our law firm has represented clients who have been arrested in Mecklenburg County and Charlotte. We ensure that you are treated fairly by the police, state attorneys and the criminal courts.
Demanding proof from the prosecution
Our justice system requires that the prosecution prove each and every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. This standard protects the constitutional rights of every individual. If you have been charged with a crime in Charlotte, we demand that the state’s attorneys meet this strict standard of proof in your case.
Building a defense in your criminal case
To uncover relevant information and exculpatory evidence, our legal team conducts a thorough investigation of the facts surrounding your charges. Our emphasis on careful case analysis and meticulous preparation produces the best possible outcome if you have been charged in Charlotte with drug-related crimes, criminal charges, or a misdemeanor such as:
- Alcohol-related crimes

We take traffic court seriously
A traffic ticket costs you money and time and can result in higher insurance premiums and suspension of your driver’s license. We understand that the penalties for moving violations can create hardships for you and your family. Our attorney assertively fights these cases so you can avoid points added to your driving record, heavy fines, loss of driving privileges and other serious consequences. If you have lost your license because of too many traffic violations, DWI or driving on a suspended license, we guide you through the process of obtaining a hardship license and pursuing license reinstatement.
