Community Outreach at Powers Landreth, PLLC

Community OutreachOne of the founding principles of the firm, in addition to providing sound legal advice, is a longstanding commitment to giving back to the community through personal outreach, service and dedication to the organizations and people we serve.


We believe the practice of law should be:

  • First, a Vocation
  • Second, a Profession
  • Third, an Occupation

We consider it an honor to serve as lawyers in court. We consider it a privilege to serve our communities outside court. – Bill Powers

It may surprise you that many lawyers go to law school because they want to help people; they want to make a difference; they want to serve the community; and, they want to protect the “little guy” against what occasionally seems like an overwhelming legal system.

Whether promoting the Legal Profession and Continuing Education of Lawyers, serving on committees or boards in the State of North Carolina and for professional associations, the staff of Powers Landreth, PLLC are all about helping people. In fact, our telephone number is: 704-342-HELP.

We encourage our attorneys and staff to donate their time, talent and resources to the Community – Bill Powers

Best Practice Model

Community Outreach is what we consider a “Best Practice” for a successful, happy and fruitful life in the practice of law. Helping others, both in good times and bad, that is our Vocation, our Profession and our Occupation.

Client Reviews
My daughter had a second DUI and when it all seemed hopeless, Bill was able to get the charges dropped. This is a man who is extremely knowledgeable, yet still keeps his integrity which was impressive to me. He handles himself with dignity. If you hire him, you will have the best of the best, along with his expansive intellect and wisdom about the law. Please don’t feel hopeless, when you can hire such a great attorney to be on your side.
Bill Powers’ staff has handled several traffic citations for me over the years, and they exceeded my expectations each and every time. Would highly recommend anyone faced with a traffic citation or court case contact his office and they will handle it from there. M.C.
I utilized Bill Powers and his firm after my DUI infraction in December 2011. During my initial consultation he immediately made me feel at ease with his knowledge of the law and his confidence in moving forward. Not to mention a great personality. He filled me in on all the ramifications and the process as a whole. I am a realist, and did not expect miracles. But Bill is stickler for procedure and that is what you need in a crises such as this. It took a good year, and the results were more than I could ever anticipate or hope for. I would have paid more had I known the results ahead of time. If you find yourself in a similar situation, trust me, he is your go to lawyer. J SJ
