Welcome to Prayer for Judgment

Legal Counsel Serving Those Seeking Prayer for Judgment Relief from Criminal Charges in North Carolina

A Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) is a finding of guilt for a criminal or traffic offense in North Carolina without judgment being entered.    If a plea of prayer for judgment is accepted by the judge, the defendant is pleading guilty but a conviction is not “entered” against the criminal defendant on the underlying charge.

If you have been charged with a traffic or criminal offense in North Carolina, it is important to understand your legal rights and options.  At Everett Law Firm, P.A., located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we welcome questions concerning legal matters from individuals throughout North Carolina.

This webpage is an attempt to provide the citizens of North Carolina with an overview of Prayer for Judgment and how it works; although, getting qualified legal advise is particularly important because a prayer for judgment entered against you on certain offenses can have a very negative impact on you.  In some instances, a prayer for judgment can be used as an aggravating factor when evaluating future convictions.  This site is not intended to be comprehensive, or cover every scenario as to when a PJC might properly be used.

This site is owned and operated by Everett Law Firm, P.A. which handles traffic ticket and other criminal matters in a multitude of counties in North Carolina.  For those North Carolina counties we do not service, we have attempted to identify other attorneys working in those counties.  When you make a submission through this website, we will forward your inquiry to one or more lawyers in the county that you received your citation.  The forwarding of information by Everett Law Firm, P.A. is not a referral and does not constitute an endorsement by the firm.  Everett Law Firm, P.A. is not a referral service and does not make any representation or judgment as to the qualifications or credentials of any lawyer listed on this site.
