Be a Better Lawyer

The practice of law is a profession, not merely a business.

There is a reason lawyers in North Carolina are deemed members of a “learned profession.” Knowledge and education provide the opportunity to serve others for the greater good.

We should all remain students of law, even after decades of licensure. There is always so much more to learn.

"The fastest way I know to become irrelevant and obsolete as an attorney is to assume you know everything. The best lawyers I know continue to learn and grow throughout their entire legal career, sharing what they know freely."

- Bill Powers

It is the duty and responsibility of experienced lawyers to help develop fellow attorneys, whether they be young or old, newly licensed or seasoned courtroom advocates.

It is tremendously rewarding to help educate lawyers. We learn from one-another and benefit by engaging on a deeply personal basis.

"I enjoy teaching continuing education for defense lawyers, prosecutors, judges, or other legal professions. My mentors, both present and past, have been generous in sharing their knowledge and practical experiences."

- Bill Powers

Courtroom Lawyers and Legal Advocates - Powers Law Firm PA

Senior attorney Bill Powers is a former President of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) and a founding member and director of the Center for Legal Education and Advocacy (CLEA).

Our law firm helps clients with a wide range of legal services, including Family Law, Personal Injury, and Criminal Defense.

"Our focus is on helping people. We purposely choose not to limit ourselves by practice-area designations."

- #BillPowersNC

As such, we consult with clients who have legal matters throughout North Carolina.

If we believe we can help, we will undertake the matter for representation.

If we believe the person in need would be better suited retaining other counsel, when possible we will refer another attorney and/or law firm.

Powers Law Firm PA is not a lawyer referral service. We carefully consider the matters the firm and our attorneys undertake for legal representation.

"Over the course of his legal career, spanning from 1992 until the present, we’ve had the opportunity to work with many wonderful attorneys. It’s an honor and pleasure to serve others as a lawyer."

- Bill Powers

Client Reviews
I am so fortunate to have had Bill Powers on my case. Upon our first meeting, Bill insisted that through the emotions of anger, sadness, confusion, and betrayal that I remain resilient. He was available to answer questions with researched, logical, truthful answers throughout our two year stretch together. I went to any lengths for my case because he won my trust almost immediately... J.R.
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. Lisa
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.
Bill and his staff are flat out great. I (unfortunately) was a repeat customer after a string of tickets. These guys not only took care of the initial ticket for me, but went the extra mile and reduced my problems from 3 to just 1 (very minor one) on the same day I called back! I would recommend them to anyone. A.R.
