Meet Our Waxhaw/Union County Criminal Defense Attorney

Headshot of Attorney Danielle Feller

Attorney Danielle Feller, a skilled criminal defense lawyer, fights for the rights of the accused across Union County and beyond.

Proven Results In High-Stakes Cases

  • Not guilty in a murder case (first-degree) that could have resulted in a mandatory life sentence ( State v. B.S.)
  • Charge dismissed, felony assault with intent to kill, which could have resulted in 73 to 100 months in prison ( State v. F.B.)
  • Charges dropped, multiple counts of sexual offense with a minor (first degree), which could have led to 128-plus years in prison along with lifetime sex offender registration ( State v. G.C.)

*Each case is different and must be evaluated on its individual facts. We work hard to assess each criminal charge individually. Prior results do not guarantee any future outcome.

Charged With Homicide?

With a murder charge, your life may literally be on the line. North Carolina allows for the death penalty in first-degree cases. Even with lesser offenses such as manslaughter, you may be looking at decades behind bars. You need a defense lawyer with experience handling these high-stakes charges.

Our team has achieved many favorable results in homicide cases, including a not guilty verdict on a first-degree murder charge that could have resulted in a mandatory life sentence. Of course, every case is different. But you can count on us to handle yours with that same degree of care and determination.

Under Investigation For A Sex Crime?

Few crimes carry a heavier social stigma than sex offenses. Mere allegations can ruin your reputation and future, even if they turn out to be false or exaggerated. The earlier you get us involved, the better. We can protect your rights at the investigation stage before charges are filed against you. And if you are already facing charges, it’s not too late to enlist our help.

Our lawyers handle charges ranging from statutory rape to possession of child pornography to forcible rape – and everything in between. We have seen it all.

Facing Campus-Related Sexual Misconduct Allegations?

Even if these allegations are unsubstantiated and never result in criminal charges, they can still have a lifelong impact on your reputation, career, education and future. Our lawyers know how to protect you in these serious matters. You can count on us to navigate the Title IX proceedings and any related criminal proceedings with determination and discretion.

We represent students, staff and faculty at K-12 schools as well as institutions of higher learning such as:

  • Wingate University
  • South Piedmont Community College
  • Winthrop University
  • DeVry University NC
  • York Technical College
  • Clinton Junior College

Defending Against Drug Charges

Drug crimes are increasingly common in Union County. If you find yourself in trouble with the law, you need a lawyer who won’t hesitate to go to bat for you. We handle all types of drug offenses, including:

  • Simple possession
  • Possession with intent to deliver
  • Drug trafficking/distribution
  • Manufacturing/cultivation
  • Conspiracy
  • Prescription drug crimes

Arrested On Suspicion Of Drunk Driving?

A DUI/DWI can lead to serious consequences, from loss of your driving privileges and mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device to job loss, jail time and hefty fines. Whether this is your first offense or your fourth, it’s not something to take lightly.

Let our lawyers help you challenge the charges. You may have grounds for reducing or dismissing them. You might be eligible for alternative sentencing options. Whatever your situation, you can count on us to fight for the best possible outcome in your case.

Facing White Collar Crime Charges?

Fraud, embezzlement, money laundering and other white collar crimes come with serious penalties. Prosecutors may try to throw the book at you just to set an example.

Given the complexity of these charges, you need a lawyer who understands how to handle them, with the experience to avoid costly missteps.

We have that experience. Our lead attorney, Patrick Roberts, worked as an assistant district attorney before founding his defense practice. He prosecuted all kinds of white collar crimes. Now, he draws on that knowledge to fight for people like you.

Other Types Of Cases

You can turn to us for skilled defense against any type of charge. We also defend juveniles against criminal allegations that could derail their future. And we can help you with expungements or post-conviction proceedings. No matter the type of criminal matter you’re facing, you will find the guidance and advocacy you need at our firm.
