Our Criminal Defense Attorneys Defend Our Clients Against All Sorts of Allegations Throughout Wake County, North Carolina

We will travel state-wide for serious felonies and are ready to provide our clients throughout North Carolina with sound legal counsel.

Criminal convictions can:

  • Ruin your reputation
  • Cost you a great deal of time and money
  • Scar you with a permanent criminal record
  • Send you to jail

If you are facing any misdemeanor or felony charges in North Carolina, contact the North Carolina criminal defense lawyers of Kurtz & Blum for a free initial consultation and case evaluation. Our attorneys defend clients charged with everything from possessing or selling drugs to serious sex offense felonies and white collar crimes like obtaining property by false pretenses or embezzlement. We also defend clients against accusations of violent felonies including murder in which the possible penalty includes death.

Our team has made it a point to ensure that our clients are provided with the legal counsel that only a skilled and highly trained Raleigh criminal attorney can provide. We have successfully represented clients charged with various felony and misdemeanor crimes, including, but not limited to:

  • Property crimes such as burglary, breaking and entering, larceny, and arson
  • Violent crimes such as robbery, assault, domestic violence, murder, gun or weapons violations, and child abuse
  • White collar crimes such as embezzlement, obtaining property by false pretenses, and bank, wire, and Internet fraud
  • Sex crimes such as rape, taking indecent liberties with children, and statutory sex offenses
  • Drug crimes such as possession, manufacture, and trafficking of a controlled substance (i.e. marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, etc.)
  • Traffic violations such as speeding tickets, moving violations, hit and run, driving with a revoked license or stop sign violations (we also handle related DMV hearings)
  • DWI or DUI.  The police have become vigilant about charging DWI or driving while impaired.  We regularly represent people charged with DWI.

Whether you need a Raleigh criminal defense attorney to help you with a drug possession charge, an experienced trial lawyer to put together a murder defense, an attorney who has the know how to handle an MAR (motion for appropriate relief), or an appellate lawyer prepared to argue your case to the North Carolina Court of Appeals, choose Kurtz & Blum. We can help.

If you are eligible, we can also help you with expungement or expunction, the process of clearing your criminal record.

Our attorneys will listen to your side of the story, point out strengths and weaknesses in the evidence, and advise you as to the best way to proceed in court. Because some of the most vital breaks in a case can occur before the trial even begins, we will provide you with the necessary information and guidance to minimize the impact the prosecution has against your case.

We will fight fiercely for you at trial and exploit any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. If we feel your case is not strong enough to win at trial, we will negotiate with the prosecutor using all the tools in our arsenal to get the best possible deal for you without litigation. Either way, we will work hard to achieve the best outcome possible in your case.

Seth A. Blum, Partner

If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime, whether it's a serious felony, a DWI or even a simple traffic ticket, you've probably already realized that the accusation alone has consequences.  You wouldn't be here if you didn't.  Initially you're probably either confused or angry or scared or some combination of all three.  You want to know what's going to happen, whether you will need to go to court and what all of this is all going to cost.  You’ll also want to know what the best case, worst case and most likely outcomes are.  Most of all you’ll likely want to know how to achieve the best possible results.

Howard A. Kurtz, Partner

Since 1998 the attorneys here at Kurtz & Blum have been guiding our clients through some very tough situations.  After we discuss the details of your case together and after we have answered all of your questions, we will jointly formulate the best course of action for you.  Then we will counsel you as to whether you need a lawyer at all and, if so, whether we are the right law firm for you in your particular case.   We will explain how much it will cost and how we can best help you to accomplish your goals.  We will arm you with information so that you will have peace of mind knowing that there will be no surprises.  The faster we get started the faster we can get this behind you.  There is no charge for the initial consultation.
