Firm Overview

Ms. Blanton is licensed to practice in all North Carolina State Courts and the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. She has been practicing law in both state and federal courts since 1998, at which time she began her career as an Assistant Public Defender in Miami, Florida. While there, she handled numerous felony and misdemeanor jury trials, and obtained specialized training in the Juvenile, Domestic Violence and Mental Health Divisions of the Miami Public Defender's Office.

Upon return to North Carolina, Ms. Blanton established the Law Office of Camille Blanton in an effort to focus her time and attention on the rights and defense of those accused of felony and misdemeanor crimes, as well as traffic infractions. She also accepts a limited number of personal injury cases on behalf of those who have been harmed by the negligence of others. Whether litigating a criminal or civil matter, in state or federal court, The Law Office of Camille Blanton will zealously and competently advocate on your behalf, while protecting and defending your rights.

In North Carolina, a criminal charge of Driving While Impaired or Intoxicated (often referred to as DUI or Driving Under the Influence) may not only affect your driver's record and insurance premiums, but can seriously impact many other aspects of your life. For example, just the issuance of a DWI citation will result in an immediate thirty day revocation of your driving privileges. If convicted, a court may sentence you to time in jail, revoke your driving privileges for one year or greater, require you to complete community service hours or a treatment program, and/or impose fines. However, you may be eligible for limited driving privileges upon initial revocation (pending a resolution of your case), or in some circumstances, even after conviction during the time period of sentenced revocation.

Our office can not only help you understand the charges at issue and determine if you are eligible for limited driving privileges pending trial, we can help determine whether or not your rights were violated when your vehicle was pulled over or after you were taken into police custody. There are also a number of legal defenses that may apply to your case, and be argued during plea negotiations or at trial. If you have a DWI case pending, or have previously been convicted of a DWI, those cases may be considered aggravating factors in plea negotiations/sentencing and lead to additional jail time or harsher penalties. An attorney can research this information for you, argue against any aggravating factors brought forward by the prosecution, and present evidence of any mitigating factors on your behalf.

When you contact The Law Office of Camille Blanton, your call will be answered immediately by an attorney, or returned as soon as possible. Your call is our top priority and you will never be forwarded to a paralegal or legal assistant for the handling of your case. Your initial consultation is free of charge, so that you can make an informed decision about your choice of legal representation free of obligation or financial burden. We represent both residents and non-residents of North Carolina, and will work with the charging state, your home state and insurance company, to ensure that your rights are adequately protected and you receive the best representation possible. Our office is open before and after regular business hours, as well as weekends, so that we may assist you at your convenience.
