Chas Post is a Board Certified Specialist in State Criminal Law by the North Carolina State Bar and is the only lawyer in Lee County, NC who has earned that distinction. Born and raised in Sanford, Chas represents folks from all walks of life who have been charged with criminal offenses in the state of North Carolina. Rated one of the “Best Lawyers in America” for Criminal Defense by Best Lawyers, Chas’s practice involves the representation of individuals in serious felony matters such as murder, drug trafficking, sex offenses, vehicular homicides, firearms crimes, and violent assaults. He also provides zealous defense in criminal misdemeanor cases such as driving while impaired, larceny and other theft crimes, drug possession, domestic violence and assaults, along with any and all traffic offenses.
Chas is known throughout the legal community as being a tenacious trial lawyer who is not afraid to litigate the tough cases. He relishes an opportunity to represent the “little guy” and go “head-to-head” with the tremendous power of government in front of a jury of 12. He has tried hundreds of bench trials, argued hundreds of pre-trial motions, and appeared in countless hearings on behalf of his clients. Chas has represented folks charged with first degree murder to simple speeding tickets. Chas has tried double-digit Superior Court jury trials, ranging from serious class B1 felonies, carrying a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole to general misdemeanor appeals; and he is relentless when negotiating with the prosecution for a dismissal of his client’s cases, or for a reduced plea in cases where a trial is not in the best interest of his client.
When it comes to defending those accused of Impaired Driving, Chas has received the most recognition of excellence from his peers and lawyer rating agencies. For the past seven years (2015 - 2021), Chas has been one of a select few North Carolina attorneys named by Super Lawyers magazine to “Super Lawyers Rising Stars” in the area of Criminal Defense: DUI/DWI. The “Super Lawyers Rising Stars” honor is limited to no more than 2.5% of lawyers within the State of North Carolina.
Additionally, Chas has been selected by the National Trial Lawyers as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer in NC” and a “Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyer in NC”. He has also been ranked “Top 10 Under 40” by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys. Chas is a member of the National College for DUI Defense, a founding member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys, and is a regular speaker and presenter at Criminal Defense and DWI continuing legal education seminars for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ).
