I contacted Attorney Alston and he replied to set up a meeting. He first listened to what I wanted to do. Gave his professional insight and legal knowledge and suggestions. Once he understood my budget and schedule traveling in and out of town with my current job, he was very flexible with both. His main statement to me was, : if you are serious, and I really believe you are, then I will do all I can to assist you in getting your businesses set up right". He met me many times after 5 and 6 pm due to my work schedule and his work/case load. Be flexible, real, honest and SERIOUS about what you want and plan to accomplish when you go t meet with him. I was impressed when he attended a local entertainment/music and artist work shop sponsored by Power 98 as part of the legal council. His advise and response from the artist there was greatly received. He truly wants to make sure Charlotte artist have local professional entertainment and business representation. You don't have to go to New York , California or Atlanta for the same if not better and I believe a fair and just price. let us support our local attorney so they will remain here in Charlotte and the surrounding areas for all local artist, labels, publishers, writers, producers, actors, etc. in the Entertainment industry and any business you're in. Again, be SERIOUS and he WILL help you!!! Thank You and I will continue utilize his services.

I was recommended by a business associate to Mac Alston. From the time we first spoke, I could tell that he really cared about me as an artist and my best interest. He was excellent at setting realistic expectations with me and delivering on them. Mac established my LLC as well as other business ventures that are on the rise. Mac charges fairly, and has a great network of other professionals to reach out to. I am delighted that he answers his phone, returns calls promptly, and handled anything I needed him for pertaining to my business and he provides stellar services. Mac is a hasty thinker and undeniably the attorney you want to protect you. My expectations are high and he never has disappointed in handling all aspects of legal for my entertainment company. I was impressed by his forthright approach, honesty, and sincerity. Mac is definitely a cut above most professionals, yet compassionate. Without a doubt he is intelligent, experienced, and assertive and yet, I never felt he was egotistical, boastful, or condescending. Mac truly has catered to my necessities in order for me to be successful. He always has innovative concepts relevant to me as his client. My working relationship with Mac is NOT at and end yet. The awesome mechanism about Mac is, he assists anyone who is passionate about their skill. Thank you Mac!

My wife and I were new in the area and in desperate need of an Attorney we could comunnicate with candidly and took our concerns seriously . Mr.Alston immediately made time for us to come down to his office so we could meet and relay our issues. He was very pleasant,straight forward and thorough in the questions he asked and information that was requested. After leaving his office my wife and I felt a sense of releaf and confidence that we'd made the right choice. Yes , Mr.Alston got us awarded a favorable decision and compensation before a actual law suit or extensive litigation had to be filed ! Since then we've contacted Mr.Alston on all our legal issues and would recommend him highly to anyone in need of sound professional legal assistance.
