Criminal Defense

When charged with a crime, you need attorneys who have compassion for your individual situation. We understand how these incidents can adversely affect your life, your career, and in some cases even your ability to get a loan. Fortunately for you we're here to help. We'll fight for your freedom, advocate for your rights, ensure you're treated fairly, and help negotiate deals that otherwise might not be available. When in doubt consult with a Rowan County attorney in Salisbury, NC to help with your criminal defense needs.


Having a criminal record isn't something to be proud of, but we all make mistakes. Those mistakes, however, don’t define us – and shouldn't prevent you from employment opportunities, housing, governmental assistance, or other vital needs. There are many reasons to consider getting an expungement. Fortunately, you may qualify for an expungement that will erase your criminal record for good!

Trademark Registration

A trademark is any word, name, symbol or device (such as a sound) that one entity uses to distinctively distinguish its goods and services from the goods and services of other entities. In short, trademarks are the brands by which goods and services are identified. Trademark law can be very complex and confusing to entrepreneurs and business owners. The Polaris Law Firm is here to simplify the process and help you to protect your brand identity. If you have any questions contact us today for a free consultation.
