When your future is at risk, who do you want protecting your rights? Someone who accepts the first offer from the prosecution or an attorney who fights back relentlessly? Your attorney should be prepared to do the hard work required to protect your rights.
I am attorney Rich Cassady, and I am well-known for my aggressive, strategic defense representation in the state and federal courts of North Carolina. Prosecutors and other opposing counsel know that I will go to trial and battle vigorously for my clients' rights. Over the years, I have tried more cases than most lawyers in Macon and Cherokee counties. As you can see from my case results, I am a successful trial attorney who can handle complex cases in criminal law, family law and personal injury. I have offices in Franklin and Murphy.
State And Federal Criminal Defense, And Trial Law
Clients appreciate that I take the time to explain their options and talk to them in regular language. I am upfront about each client's chances. While I like going to trial, it is always the client's decision.
My criminal defense practice includes a broad range of offenses such as:
- Drunk driving and traffic tickets, which can cause your insurance rates to go up and lead to loss of your driving privileges
- State drug crimes
- Domestic violence charges that can result in a loss of your rights before you are even convicted
- Sex offenses, including offenses involving minors, which have a devastating effect on your reputation and your future
- Illegal possession of a weapon, which can add years to your sentence if charged in conjunction with another crime
- Federal crimes
In addition to my criminal defense work, I protect the rights of accident victims and their families in personal injury claims. As a former insurance defense lawyer, I know how to get full and fair compensation for people injured in car and truck accidents.
