Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
DWI and criminal defense lawyer Bill Powers of Powers McArtan 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 six years running – an honor for any attorney.
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, a founding partner at Powers McCartan,PLLC 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 accreditations too: in 2011 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.
