Proven Trial Lawyers Defending Your Interests

At Hester & Tucker, PLLC Attorneys at Law, our clients are our top priority. With more than 35 years of experience representing clients in Rocky Mount and surrounding counties, we understand the stress, pressure and frustration facing our clients as they deal with traffic violations and other criminal defense matters in District and Superior Courts.

We do everything in our power to achieve the best possible result for our clients, whether the case is in district or superior court. From start to finish, we keep our clients informed of any updates while the outcome is pending. Both of our attorneys are former assistant district attorneys and use their knowledge and experience to better negotiate on behalf of our clients. In each case, we look at all the options and outline possible outcomes — we never force a client to accept a plea bargain that goes against his or her wishes.
