Have you been charged with or investigated for a crime?
It is in your best interest to seek legal representation immediately. There are a wide array of acts that constitute a “crime,” and in North Carolina, a crime can be either a misdemeanor or a felony. A misdemeanor carries with it a lesser punishment than does a felony, but both have the possibility of subjecting a criminal defendant to prison time, among other repercussions.
If you have been charged with a crime, the State of North Carolina will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law, and will likely recommend the harshest punishment that the law provides. If you have been charged with a crime, your best course of action is to seek legal representation to represent your interests in a court of law. A criminal defense attorney at the Khan Law Firm will fight on your behalf to negotiate with the prosecutor and argue your case in front of a judge for the best possible outcome.
Preserving your legal rights is of utmost importance, because being charged with or investigated for a crime can carry lifelong consequences. The Khan Law Firm can guide you through the process and provide you with the representation that you need to have the best result possible.

Have you been stopped by law enforcement for a traffic violation?
The reality is that most individuals have, at one time or another, been pulled over by law enforcement for a traffic violation or routine checkpoint—but that does not make the occasion any easier or less intimidating.
While traffic violations are typically viewed as fairly inconsequential, traffic violations can actually have long-lasting and unexpected effects on both drivers and their families. If you have been pulled over for a traffic violation, a lawyer can work to minimize the various consequences of driving-related violations.
As you probably already know, if you plead guilty or are found guilty of certain traffic violations, your car insurance premiums can increase. If you allow our law office to represent you in this matter, in most cases we can resolve your cases without you ever having to appear in court, avoid or limit insurance points on your drivers license, and keep your criminal record clean.

Have you been injured due to the fault of another person?
Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when an individual sustains injury from an accident or intentional act due to the fault of another. The ultimate goal of a personal injury case is to hold the at-fault party legally responsible for the harm and injury that they cause.
Personal injury cases can arise in countless ways, and you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries that you sustained. Pain, inconvenience, and mental anguish oftentimes accompany the injuries sustained, and you may be entitled to compensation for that, as well.
Personal injury cases most often arise in the context of motor vehicle accidents, but they can also arise in the context of slip and falls, neglect, and even crimes that an individual is victim to. The Khan Law Firm will navigate your injury and the facts of your case, and fight to secure the compensation that you are entitled to.
