Bill Powers is well-known throughout North Carolina among courtroom lawyers. As the former President of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, through his work teaching lawyers, and as a founding member of the Center for Legal Education and Advocacy, Bill Powers is a “Lawyer’s Lawyer.” “Make no mistake, justice is a battle. As a courtroom lawyer, my goal is to fight to the best of my abilities to help my clients, while also being courteous to my opponent. It’s something I work on every day.”- Bill Powers
Experience in one area of law can be incredibly helpful with other legal issues. We’re not just criminal defense lawyers, or personal injury attorneys, or lawyers who handle divorce cases. We’re litigators. “Whether it’s a complicated, messy divorce, a bad car accident or serious felony DWI charge involving allegations of murder or manslaughter, courtroom advocacy and trial skills make a difference.” – Bill Powers
The knowledge base for defending for DWI charges in North Carolina is a wonderful, powerful tool if you represent a plaintiff on a wrongful death claim for punitive damages in a car accident case.
