Criminal Defense

Being charged with a criminal or traffic offense is a serious matter and our experienced attorneys are here to assist you with your charges. Years of trial experience allows us to offer our clients unparalleled defense from minor traffic infraction, speeding tickets or DWI/DUI to misdemeanors and felony criminal offenses and defense of juvenile clients. With our office being located directly across the street from the Onslow County Courthouse in downtown Jacksonville, the lawyers of Lanier, Fountain & Ceruzzi are conveniently located to assist our clients with any and all types of criminal defense.

We are proud to be one of the few law firms left in the Jacksonville area who do not engage in mass mailings to all persons who receive traffic tickets, as we feel that our solid reputation is the best form of advertising and the only type of advertising that a person can truly rely on. Our Attorneys always discuss with our clients the possible ramifications of a driving offense on a client’s insurance, driver’s license and, possibly, their freedom. Our attorneys have spent years honing their skills as litigators by zealously defending our clients in both State and Federal Court. All of the Partners in Lanier, Fountain & Ceruzzi are also licensed to practice law in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina and bring this added experience in performing criminal defense in Federal Court to our State Court practice.
