Drugged Driving – or Drug DWI – is a form of “Impaired Driving,” under N.C.G.S. 20-138.1. This is the same law that the State uses to convict drunk drivers.

THESE LAWS ENSURE FREE SOCIETY. Civil Rights typically refer to personal liberties and freedoms expressly granted under the United States Constitution, Federal Statutes, and North Carolina law. These laws are designed to protect people from tyrannical government over-reach; they ensure our Democracy remains a free and fair society. They define our shared national identity. They serve as an example to the rest of the world.

A CAREER PROTECTING PERSONAL FREEDOMS. FLETCHER LEGAL, a Charlotte-based Law Practice, is committed to fighting for equal enforcement of the law, and individual liberties. Attorney Derek R. Fletcher has spent his career in court, fighting the police, for violating his client’s Civil Rights. Violations of civil rights cases we frequently accept include:

• Censorship of Free Speech

• Restrictions on the right to peaceably assemble

• Police brutality and misconduct

• Unlawful Search and Seizure

• Firearm Restoration Rights

• Pistol Purchase Denials and Appeals

• Concealed Carry Denials and Appeals

• Violations of 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendment Rights

CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATIONS RUIN LIVES. These types of cases often have devastating, and long lasting, repercussions on their victims. Everything they once believed about their society changes in an instant. They are forced to fight for the rights the rest of us take for granted. Their braveries in directly challenging powerful, large organizations remind us of the things worth fighting for.
