    Chris is the best in Cabarrus County.

    I wanted to take a minute to share what a great experience I had as a client of Chris' and the Powers-Mccartan group. Chris put me at ease from the first consultation and I immediately felt very fortunate to have him in my corner. Though the legal process went longer than both he and I anticipated, Mr. Mccartan never wavered in providing me with solid counsel in appearance after appearance and eventually the trial. My decision to use Powers-Mccartan will always be remembered as money well spent and I'm certain that had I gone with anyone else i would have been less satisfied with the outcome.
    Big thanks to Chris and everyone at Powers-Mccartan.

    Thankful!

    We were referred to Chris by a friend of our family. Never having dealt with legal circumstances, Chris was informative, helpful and brought resolution to the issue in a timely manner. He was available when needed and was very personable during this ordeal. We can't think him and his staff enough!

    Grateful for his service

    Chris McCartan is an excellent lawyer. My case took several years to come to fruition and he saw it through until the very end. He was prepared for court and seemed genuinely interested in my situation. His office staff is friendly, polite, and returned phone calls as requested. I am grateful for the service he provided.

    Couldn't have asked for better

    Like I said in the title I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to have represent me on my cases Mr. McCartan got me the best deal possible and actually fought for me infront of the D.A. and judge and it was never about money to Mr. McCartan either all he cared about was helping his clients if you're backed up into a corner with no way to go and you need an attorney look no further than Mr. McCartan you will not be disappointed with his services

    Meh

    Although he did as much as he could do, based on my assessment, I would not recommend going with Chris because his services are over priced and I did not feel well informed. If you get a DUI your best bet is to get the absolute cheapest lawyer you can or look up the paper work to get your limited driving privilege and such yourself. I am dealing with the DUI I received 7 years after the fact because I was ill informed about how to completely serve my punishment. I was given enough counsel to keep me out of jail, but, now I find myself with a restricted license because I wasn't told that I had to initiate the time served for which I can only have a BAC of .04. Get the cheapest lawyer you can get that will help you get a limited driving privilege for the first year and help get you set up with the required AA classes. It is a good idea to have a lawyer if you have never been to court before because the courts do not have your best interests in mind and herd you through the process like cattle going to slaughter. In hindsight, I could have gotten the same service for 100 bucks if I had waited on the letters to roll in from cheaper alternatives. If you have an extra couple grand to blow then by all means, go for it. Just remember, there is no defense for DUI. You will be convicted, the best you can hope for is to be guided through the process of getting your full driving privileges back.

    phew!

    Chris helped me through a horrible time and I ended up with a fair and relatively painless outcome. He listened to my issues, was very informed, and his advice was spot-on throughout my ordeal. Chris was very strong and highly effective in the Courtroom: highlighting all the right aspects of my complicated situation (as a non-national), he got me exactly what I needed to move on with my life. I actually felt good leaving the Courtroom!

    Strong, personable defense lawyer with great attention to detail

    I was referred to Mr. McCartan by a friend and the referral turned out to be a blessing. My situation required an attorney who would listen to my side of the story and ALL the details that were relevant to my case. That's exactly what I received in Mr. McCartan. He seemed genuinely interested in my well-being as a client and made me feel very comfortable from beginning to end. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. Obviously, I highly recommend him!

    Miracle Worker

    Guys, I want to share these statements with you. I had the greatest experience in court the other day..I was charge with a case that has been hanging over my head for quite some time now. I"ve hire multiple Lawyers to handle my case in the pass and came up dissapointed, I was about to give up because of the monie I've spent, and I mean "Some Monies have been spent". Anyway,a colleague of mine told me about a Law Firm called Powers& McCartan that kick a_ _. I looked them up to see whether they serve clients in Cabarrus County.I got intouch with an Lawyer by the name of Chistopher McCartan. We got set up and went over the leagal expects of my case and I still was a lil sceptical about them been able to grant me my wishes," Boy let me tell you something" this Lawyer stood up in court and represented me just like he knew me from childhood, he spoke Loud, cocky, and direct to the Judge and the DA and presented my case with authority...WOW!!! he blew my mine when he spoke. everybody in court even the police officers was fixed on this guy and how he delivered my case..after spending so much money and time in the past while dealing with lazy ass Lawyers, that only care about your money and not the client's welfare, I can say Chistopher McCartan with "Powers&McCartan" has perform a miracle that day..he gets 6 starrs from me..Thank you so much!!!

    Thrown under the bus

    Was told I had a good case and we were going to plead not guilty. There was no probable cause for the officer to approach my car except that the officer stated my music was loud and he went to investigate. The noise around me was so loud you could not hear yourself think, so yes, my radio was probably loud: I was at the race sitting directly beside the track on the road that led to my motor home (a private road). I was not moving and the officer never observed my car in motion. I had been to visit my friend in another campsite and was dressed in my pajamas. I certainly had no intention of being on a State Road. His defense was going to be that there was no probable cause. There was never any mention of pleading guilty. I should have been told this at the first meeting with Mr. McCartan not six months later and 30 minutes before being called in front of the judge. My fee was 1500.00 and he was paid within 2 weeks of our first consultation. I am really let down by this and should have represented myself; I feel I would have had a better outcome and a LOT cheaper. A jury trial would have suited me just fine. My first impression was a positive one, I was truly in shock when he came to me at the court house and informed me of his change in plans. I felt blindsided and did not know what else to do. There was some language about not making the judge mad and taking a chance of having a severe penalty. Not having been in front of a judge before naturally I took his advice. I will say that I am a Senior Citizen with a spot less record...until now.
