Mr. Connelly represented my son in two possession charges within a two month period. Chris made the first charge easy and painless. As for the second, he prepared us for the worst scenario and then delivered a more favorable outcome than we had hoped for. Throughout the process he treated my son with dignity and respect. He took the time to get to know him so that he could present him to the court in the best possible light.
It was a pleasure working with an experienced attorney who takes his role as advocate seriously. If we find ourselves in need of a criminal attorney in the future, we will call Chris without hesitation.

I was new to the business of needing an attorney. I was very afraid and very paranoid, partly because of what I had been charged with, misdemeanor larceny, and partly because of insecurity over picking the right attorney. Chris is a man of few words, but when he speaks, it all counts and is effective. I never had to seek him out regarding what was going on, and this was reassuring. He cannot make outcome guarantees, and I came to understand that, but he delivered. I HIGHLY reccommend Mr Connelly to anyone who is afraid and really needs an attorney who will fight hard for you. I expect to never get in trouble again, but if I did, I would deinitely return to Chris for help.

Mr Connelly has represented me now for two legal issues. Both were handled with thorough professionalism and dedication. Mr. Connelly takes the time to explain issues and keeps his client up to date on progress. Along with an excellent support staff working with him, I would recommend Mr. Connelly to friends and family in need of legal representation.

Mr. Connelly is the most wonderful lawyer I have had the pleasure of knowing! He had a true commitment to my case and was prompt in helping me to reach a resolution. He also took the time to follow up with me often- I never had to call and ask what was going on. It was truly a refreshing experience in the mist of not great circumstances!

I was very blessed by selecting Mr. Connelly just by reading his reviews, I am not from charlotte I live far away from there. I had to hire an attorney for my son's drug case. My son could of got a lot of time for what he did but Mr. Connelly took care of it as he said he would, so now I should see my son sooner then I expected. I can say I made the right choice , I believe he is doing god's work by helping others . He is very professional, experienced, knowledgeable. I could always count on him by phone or email he would always answer my questions and if he couldn't do it right there and then his employees would take care of it for him, that is what I loved about him and his employees they worked together to get the job done. I love the way he cares about his client's he goes above and beyond, he makes you feel like family not just someone you hired to do the job. God see's what he is doing for others, Mr. Connelly keep up the good work and you will continue to receive the blessing from above.

Chris is not only an excellent attorney, but a great person as well. He helped me with a first time offense and had the case dismissed before he entered the court room. He is experienced and kept me updated throughout the process. His staff is wonderful as well, and were always aware of what the status of my case was. I couldn't recommend a better attorney in Charlotte.

Mr. Connelly handled my case with professionalism, tact, and with much detail. I was expecting the typical attorney-client experience but instead I got an attorney who ensured I got a fair trail with positive results. I highly recommend Mr. Chris Connelly as an attorney for traffic cases.

I highly recommend Mr. Connelly. I was charged with a DUI a couple years ago and hired a different Law Firm. The case was continued for almost a year (which was fine by me) but every time I appeared for court, there was a different attorney from the firm to whom I had to explain the details of my case. I understand that I am not a high profile politician or celebrity but I felt as if they could not have cared less about my situation. About a year later, I was pulled over and arrested for DWLR and decided to hire Mr. Connelly based on a few recommendations from others who had similar situations. When you hire Chris, you will deal with Chris. I much prefer this approach and felt as if he gave a damn about me and my situation. This was a pretty serious situation considering the DWLR was a result of a DUI charge and jail time was a real possibility. Ultimately Mr. Connelly, was able to get the charge completely dismissed. This could have had a major impact on my career (especially if it resulted in any jail time) and I could not be more appreciative of the job that Mr. Connelly did.

Chris has done it again, 3rd time is charm. The first time I used Chris he got me off of reckless driving and speeding. I contacted him on Friday evening and got a email back from him Saturday. Monday morning he called me at like 10am and informed me the charges were dropped.
2nd - incident - Caught on hwy 77 doing 115mph in my corvette. Again charges dropped.
3rd screw up and definitely my last. I ran from the police on my street bike. Charged with Felony eluding, confiscated my bike, 133mph, failure to stop, and about 5 other tickets. I spent the night In jail and as soon as I got out I contacted Chris's office. within an hour he called me back and said to come in and talk. From there on I didn't have to do anything but show up at court. Anytime I had a question and emailed Chris I had a response within a couple of hours. In court the man is awesome, he got in front of the judge and made me sound like a medal of honor war hero (I'm a veteran). I guess it helped because when it was all said and done; my felony was reduced to a misdemeanor, speeding was dropped and the only thing I got was reckless driving. Which is very fair considering I was passing state troopers well over 150mph inches from their mirrors. One occasion I went through two of them. So I totally deserve a reckless driving charge. Last but certainly not least I got my bike back!!! woohooo!!! I can't drive it for a year but that's probably for the best.
Thanks again Chris!! Here's another * for this review.
