COMMITTED, COMPASSIONATE CHAMPION FOR JUSTICE
Bill Powers is known as a polite, yet hard-nosed veteran of the courtroom. “Make no mistake, justice is a battle. My goal is to fight to the best of my abilities, while also being courteous to my opponent,” Powers says. “It’s something I work on every day.”
CRIMINAL, TRAFFIC, & DWI IMPAIRED DRIVING DEFENSE
The laws in North Carolina continue to evolve, so does Powers’ practice. It doesn’t matter the town, county, or jurisdiction, that law is the same. There is no substitute for experience, dedication, hard work, and compassion when it comes to practice of law.
NORTH CAROLINA STATEWIDE LAW PRACTICE
The State of North Carolina is wonderful. “I love traveling to different jurisdictions, working with all sorts of lawyers, judges, prosecutors, and court personnel,” he says. “It’s a rush to walk into a new jurisdiction for the firm time. I can think of no more fulfilling way to practice law,” says Powers.
Our firm has two convenient North Carolina locations in Charlotte and Concord. “While we may focus on the Charlotte Metro region and surrounding counties, I have no problem traveling near-and-far to help people. Sometimes a fresh look and different perspective is just what’s needed in Court.”
Bill adds, “I have practiced law and tried cases in many jurisdictions throughout North Carolina. I don’t worry about local politics or personalities. I try my cases based on the law and facts. The law is the same in Murphy as it is in Manteo.”
A LAWYER AND A TEACHER
Powers makes a point to share what he knows. “One of the more rewarding aspects of my professional life is helping other attorneys. I don’t believe in hiding information or experiences.” Though he spends most of his time in the courtroom, Powers keeps up in the classroom, too. “The best way to learn is to teach. Helping explain the law and courtroom techniques forces me to be on the forefront of law and legal issues. There is always room to learn and become a better courtroom lawyer.”
PASSION FOR CLIENTS
Powers views his job as an opportunity to counsel clients through difficult times. “My passion is to help people, not judge them,” he says. “I take my responsibilities seriously. People trust me with their worries, concerns, and lives. I absolutely must be there for them.” It’s that simple.
LEADER IN THE LEGAL COMMUNITY
Bill was elected President of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, serving in that position during 2016 – 2017. “It blows me away to be selected as President of NCAJ by my peers. It has been an incredible honor to serve,” Powers says. “The wisest professional decision I ever made was to join the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. One cannot practice law in a vacuum. You must engage.”
