Avvo Client's choice 2013 Top 40 Under 40 Top 100 Trial Lawyers
Criminal justice attorney John Landreth is proud to be a lifelong Charlottean, graduating from Charlotte Christian School in 2000. John zealously represents the citizens of Charlotte and both Carolinas who are facing misdemeanor and felony criminal charges, Driving While Impaired (DWI), Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and traffic infractions.

“The Carolinas are my home and I feel a duty to provide the citizens of these great states with compassionate advocacy.”

After practicing throughout North Carolina, Mr. Landreth became a member of the South Carolina Bar in 2014. “The states may be neighbors but their laws and processes could not be more different. I enjoy crossing the border and implementing the trial skills I learned in North Carolina to a new set of laws and system of justice.”

Mr. Landreth has quickly earned a reputation as a fearless and zealous advocate in the courtroom, earning the distinctions of Top 40 Under 40 and Top 100 Trial attorneys in recent years. “It is truly an honor to be recognized for your work and how much you pour into the preparation of a trial. When I am in trial I am not only advocating for my client but for all the citizens of that state.”

“As attorneys we have the privilege to serve multiple roles for our clients, the advocate and the counselor. We get to be the voice of reason and calm during unsettling and difficult times.” Mr. Landreth adds, “I take pride in being there for my clients whether they need a shoulder to cry on, a protector in court or simply a listening ear. That is the highest duty we have to our clients and I am honored every day fulfill that role to the best of my ability.”

While Mr. Landreth has other hobbies such as boating, fishing, and outdoor activities, he states, “Practicing law is my real passion. I couldn’t see myself doing anything else in life and being this fulfilled at the end of every day.”

If you or someone you know has been charged with a Criminal, Traffic or DWI/DUI Offense in North Carolina or South Carolina, Mr. Landreth would be happy to assist you through this difficult time.

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
