Criminal Law

Craven County & Pamlico County Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for or charged with a crime, do not face the legal system alone. Entrust your case to me, attorney Dan Potter. I have over 16 years of experience defending clients in many different types of criminal law matters. I am committed to my clients, fighting as aggressively as necessary in order to preserve your rights.


Upon being charged with drunk driving or Driving While Impaired (DWI) your license is automatically suspended for 30 days. I can assist you in seeking the retention of driving privileges to get to work or school. I also represent clients at trial or in negotiations with the prosecutor in the case. Penalties for DWI/DUI are getting more strict in North Carolina and throughout the country. It is important to retain an attorney as soon as possible who will protect your rights and advocate for your interests in court. I can help you handle these matters and strive to minimize the impact they have on your future.

I also handle all felony and misdemeanor crimes at the state level, including:

  • Drug offenses, such as possession of controlled substances and/or paraphernalia
  • Alcohol offenses, such as possession of alcoholic beverages by an underage person
  • Property crimes, such as forgery, breaking and entering, and obtaining property by false pretenses
  • Assault, communicating threats, and harassing phone calls
  • Sex offenses
  • Juvenile crimes and delinquency charges

Contact a North Carolina criminal defense attorney that thoroughly understands the law and will stand up for your rights. A free consultation is offered for criminal law clients so you can understand the circumstances of your case without cost or obligation. Flexible appointment times and telephone consultations are available and I accept Visa and MasterCard as forms of payment, as well as in-state checks, money orders, and cash.
