Well Recommended Lawyer!
Earlier this year, I contacted Ingalls Law, PLLC to see if they would represent me in a traffic matter. Ingalls took initiative and reviewed my case for me. With thorough communication, we came to an agreement that Ingalls would be representing me in my case. I can honestly say that I couldn't be more happy with the outcome of my case. Robert Ingalls did an amazing job representing me and communication with this company was great! He made sure that I new the whole process and kept me in the loop through the whole process. I would recommend this law firm any day! Robert is a very intelligent, hard working lawyer and it was a pleasure doing business with him. I will definitely use him in the future for any legal work! Thank you so much Ingalls Law, PLLC!

Very Pleased Client!!
I hired Attorney Ingalls after several failed attempts of trying to collect money that was owed to me after a breach of contract with a business partner.. Shortly after hiring Mr. Ingalls firm the case was settled and I started receiving the funds that were agreed upon. I would recommend hiring the Ingalls law firm to anyone that's having similar problems.

Unfair moving violation
My wife has gone over 20 years without a moving violation. She was caught in a unwinnable situation on Tryon coming home from work one night. Short stop a yellow (with cars behind) or roll under it. She chose the latter. The 2 sherif cars that pulled he over (and called her "sir") were not swayed be the short yellow excuse (which it is). She got a "going through a continuous burning red light" infraction. The bill is $268 with court costs and a raise in our insurance which seems rough after both of us have gone so long without infractions. I brought this to the attention of Robert and he was more than happy to take a look even though it's not necessarily his specialty. I brought the paperwork he needed, gave him the info he needed to pull up my wives driving record and he took it all from there. I, or my wife, didn't have to do another thing. Rob was prepared and spoke with the Asst. DA and got the charges dismissed which was a huge load off our mind and pocket. When I spoke with Rob, he was attentive and interested in what I was saying and he was genuinely sympathetic for our situation. We have never had a need for an attorney before and I was unsure of what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised. Rob also made sure we knew the very minute he had a decision from the ADA. Days before the court date I was at his office and got a chance to see him in action again for another client. He, again, was as caring and sympathetic to that person's situation as he was mine. Rob brings a good light to the profession that is much maligned. He demonstrates attention, caring and professionalism and gets work done. Though I hope it's a ling time until I need a lawyer, I can assure all who read this, it will be Rob Ingalls Law who's door I will darken. A couple days

Great Firm
Attorney Ingalls was very proactive with assistance in regard to my case. He kept me informed during the entire process. I will admit that I was skeptical in the beginning because of the distance and me being unfamilar with him or his firm but he was successful in turning my preconceived notions around for the better. I would highly recommend anyone in the Charlotte metro area or In close proximity to reach out to Robert Ingalls and his firm so that you are in good hands.

It feels nice to finally get a good night’s sleep
I have always been leery of attorneys and thus I vetted several before hiring Robert Ingalls. Thank goodness he represented me. Robert explained matters clearly and concisely and was along side of me every step of the way. There was always an immediate response from him and his office staff for even my most trivial concerns. If you want a knowledgeable, trustworthy attorney who understands customer service, hire him. Thanks Robert!

Mr. Ingalls did a wonderful job representing me on my recent unemployment appeal. I have indeed referred Mr. Ingalls to others.

Unemployment Win
Robert was very quick and to the point to help me when I was discharged for a supposed policy violation. Through cross exam, both the GM and the HR rep admitted there was no stated policy. Robert had identified this early on in the case, attacked it swiftly and pointedly, and the ruling was affirmed. I would use him again if ever in need.

Very Satisfied Client!
I hired Mr Ingalls to represent me for my unemployment hearing. He did a fantastic job. I was truly grateful for his expertise and knowledge. He is very straight forward with his clients. I would recommend his services.

Very Impressed & Extremely Satisfied!!!
Attorney Robert Ingalls had less than a 3 day notice to become familiar with my unemployment denial case however he presented it as if he had known my case and me for years; not to mention he and his office staff are very friendly, nice and professional. During my telephone hearing he was very confident, informative and knowledgeable (so many times during my telephone hearing I just wanted to jump up and high five him because he brought his "A " game... LOL) and I am pleased to say "We Won".

Robert Ingalls
Robert handled my case very well. Despite numerous delays, due to other parties, he stayed with me and got me most of what I wanted. He made sure my rights and opinions were respected and that my hearing worked best for me.

Great lawyer in the Charlotte area
Rob, helped me out when I was in a difficult situation. I was overwhelmed and in over my head, but Rob was able to eleviate my legal burden very quickly and effectively.

Very pleased!!
I engaged Mr. Ingalls to help me with a NCESC hearing for unemployment benefits recently. I am so glad I decided to retain an attorney, as I am positive it helped me with my case, as well as reducing the stress of facing the situation alone. Mr. Ingalls was very knowledgeable of the appeals process, and his expertise made me feel much more confident in the eventual outcome. Although having an attorney doesn't guarantee one will win their case, it certainly does not hurt. I could not be more pleased in the service I received from Ingalls Law, and in the favorable outcome of my case. Thank you!!
