Charleston Criminal Defense Attorneys

Criminal charges can have life-altering effects. Without a solid defense, you put a lot at risk, including your future, freedoms and liberties. At Carrico Law Offices LC, defending our clients' rights is our top priority. When you retain our services, you have our full attention. We begin working on a defense strategy that works for your criminal case.

Our criminal practice is headed by attorney Tim Carrico, a former assistant prosecutor with 20 years of legal experience. He has a long-standing track record in both state and federal courts, and has the skills to handle even the most complicated legal cases.

State Criminal Defense Cases

Mr. Carrico has extensive experience defending clients facing state crimes, including DUI, drug crimes involving possession or some prescription medication fraud, small-scale drug crimes, and more. He and our team take an aggressive stance to every case, and work toward a dismissal or lessening the punishments for the crimes. While state crimes do not carry punishments as serious as federal crimes, the consequences are still significant. We will do everything possible to mitigate the negative impact of a state crime on your future.

Federal Criminal Defense

Federally prosecuted crimes are often very different from state crimes. If you face a federal criminal charge, your choice in defense counsel is critical. A criminal lawyer may have a successful track record, but if he or she does not have experience in federal court your best interests may not be protected. Attorney Tim Carrico has extensive experience defending individuals in federal court who face crimes involving:

  • White collar crimes, including federal fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and more. This includes representation at the point of investigations, prior to criminal charges.
  • Sex crimes, including Internet offenses
  • Serious drug cases, including drug trafficking and drug crimes paired with weapons offenses.

Not only are we familiar with the unique steps of the legal processes in federal criminal court, but we also maintain a successful track record advocating for our clients. Our adversaries respect the legal approaches we take, and our clients appreciate the level of professionalism and individualized attention we provide.
