Bill Powers, a founding partner of Powers Landreth, PLLC, recently received notice from North Carolina Super Lawyers Magazine, a group that reviews and rates attorneys, that it has listed him in their Top 100 Lawyers in the state of North Carolina. Powers, who practices in a variety of areas of criminal defense law with special focus on traffic and DUI defense, has now been listed in Super Lawyers Magazine six years running and within the “Top 100” for the past two years.
To determine who gets listed, Super Lawyers uses a wide variety of criteria including peer reviews, ethical standards and a demonstrated history of achievement in the field. Peer recognition from within the law community is not enough on its own to secure a position on the list: Super Lawyers uses third-party research to see if nominees have a proven record of professional achievement including factors such as courtroom success, scholarly activity and volunteerism.
Powers adds, “My passion is to help people, not judge them. I take my responsibility seriously. People trust me with their worries, concerns and lives. I absolutely must be there for them.”
Over the years Powers has earned other awards and distinctions, too: in 2011 & again in 2013 he was named US News & World Report / Best Lawyers in America “Lawyer of the Year for DUI/DWI defense in Charlotte.” Bill is also a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist as recognized by the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification / NBTA. Powers Landreth, PLLC is listed within US News & World Report “Best Law Firms.” Bill Powers has been selected by Business North Carolina Magazine in the “2013 Legal Elite” and is also listed within “Best Lawyers in America.”
