Experienced Representation At All Stages Of The Criminal Process

At Hale & Associates, our practice is dedicated exclusively to representing people charged with crimes or infractions. We handle all aspects of every type of criminal case, from initial investigations, to pretrial motions and hearings, to trials, appeals, and post-conviction proceedings. We take on every type of case, from minor traffic tickets and DUI's, to state and federal misdemeanors and felonies. The depth of our criminal law practice lends us valuable insight into preparing effective case strategies in light of not only the immediate hearing or trial, but also any ensuing appeals or post-conviction remedies. Our attorneys' extensive appellate experience provides them with an enhanced ability to analyze and defend cases from all angles and perspectives.

Our Raleigh-based criminal defense lawyers have more than 25 years of combined experience. For the first five years of his career, founder Robert H. Hale Jr., served as a Research and Writing Specialist and later Assistant Federal Public Defender for the Eastern District of North Carolina, where he defended numerous individuals accused of federal crimes. He also represented many defendants on appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Now in his private practice, he has continued to devote his career to defending individuals facing federal charges. As a member of the United States Supreme Court Bar, he has also prepared numerous petitions for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. He has handled post-conviction death penalty cases through both state and federal court and was successful in exonerating one man from a sentence of death, whose case was later dismissed.

Associate attorney Daniel M. Blau also defends clients against all types of state and federal charges. He has successfully argued cases before state and federal appellate courts, and he is a former judicial law clerk for the North Carolina Court of Appeals. He was editor of the First Amendment Law Review at the University of North Carolina School of Law and graduated with honors.

Our firm's strength and success lie in our in-depth knowledge and experience at handling all aspects of state and federal criminal cases. Our attorneys have handled thousands of criminal cases, including more than 50 appeals, in both state and federal courts.

Handling State And Federal Cases From Pretrial Investigations, Pretrial Motions, Trial, Appeals, And Post-Conviction Proceedings

Our attorneys are experienced litigators and also skilled negotiators. We appear in state and federal courtrooms day in and day out. We have developed solid working relationships with judges, prosecutors, clerks, and law enforcement and probation officers. As a long-standing law firm in the Raleigh area, we have earned an excellent reputation in the legal community for our diligent advocacy.

Our attorneys are creative thinkers who draw on extensive trial and appellate experience to develop innovative legal arguments and strategies for all stages of criminal cases.

We are also attentive to immigration concerns that accompany getting arrested and charged with a crime for non-citizens. We understand the interplay between criminal and immigration law and work closely and consult with immigration lawyers to ensure the best results for our clients. We regularly advise our non-citizen clients on how to avoid or mitigate the immigration consequences of criminal charges or convictions.
