Stephen C. Harris, P.C. represents clients in the following matters:

DUI / DWI Offenses
Driving any motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can be a very serious offense. The degree of enforcement varies between US states but driving while intoxicated is illegal and if you don’t get the right assistance at the right time, you could be in serious trouble.

Reckless Driving
Unfortunately sometimes when you get pulled over by law enforcement, it is not a speeding ticket you are getting cited for. If you drive 20+ miles an hour over the speed limit you could be charged with the more serious offense of reckless driving. If you receive a reckless driving ticket you could find yourself subject to a jail period if the offense is not handled correctly.

Speeding or Traffic Violations
If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license, or committing vehicular manslaughter, we can help put you back in the driver’s seat. We also assist clients in restoring their drivers licenses and fighting traffic tickets.

Sexual Offenses
Rape and sexual assault cases are among the hardest for defendants to win. Attorney Stephen C. Harris has the experience and skills to successfully argue these cases. Contact us today.

Drug Offenses
Being charged with trafficking, distributing, or possessing illegal substances or paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help you minimize or eliminate the charges against you.

Expunging Records
A criminal record can prevent a person from pursuing higher education, securing a dream job or traveling abroad. Stephen C. Harris, P.C. can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record to help you move on in the future.

Felonies
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court. Felonies are extremely serious crimes — murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary — and have serious consequences. A convicted felon will be sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications, and can be deported if they are not American citizens. How you handle a felony charge can make the difference for the rest of your life. We will work to attain the best possible result for you.

Misdemeanors
Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in prison and may include such offenses as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and require you to spend time in jail. Let attorney Harris represent you and ensure that you receive a fair trial.
