Needing a criminal defense attorney in Winston-Salem does not necessarily mean that you are some crime boss or hoodlum. Take the instance of a State Representative who was recently exonerated of death-by-vehicle criminal charges.

However, an expert brought into the investigation at the request of the Representative’s criminal defense attorney reconstructed the high-speed accident and showed conclusively that the opposite had happened—the other vehicle had crossed into the west-bound lane and had struck the representative’s car causing both to spin so violently that the representative’s car ended up in the east-bound lane and made it appear to witnesses that his car had veered.
