DWI reduces to lesser offense
Chris did a great job for me with my DWI. He got it reduced to a lesser offense that I was more than happy about. I got time served without any Court costs or fine. It was worth the money. I would highly recommend him to work your DWI case.

DWI Dismissed
Chris was well prepared and did an excellent job representing my case. Very knowledgeable and up to date on laws that were pertinent to the case. I would VERY highly recommend Mr. Beddow for any DWI case you may have.

Chris Hired = Case Dismissed
In summary, my experience with Chris and the entire Powers Law Firm was incredible. 1. Chris's intelligence, plan, and hard work met my satisfaction x10 and beyond. 2. I was confident and comfortable the whole time and did very little work. 3. The entire team is so intelligent, professional, and easy to work with. 4. Communication was top notch. 5. No judgement and everyone was on the same team. List could go on, but this is what you are looking for in someone who is helping direct you in life changing decisions. Thank you Chris and the entire Powers Law Firm.

DWI
I have never had an experience like this. First time having a lawyer that wasn’t court appointed. Wow what a difference. Having someone advocate and care for my case was awesome. The DA tried several different tricks and he was prepared for them all. I would recommend and use Chris again. Needless to say the verdict was not guilty. I am still in awe. What an experience. Top notch attorney.

Exceptional
Throughout the entire process of continued court dates and frusteration, Chris provided me with excellent communication. I was immediately impressed with how he went above and beyond my expectations to make sure I was informed of the steps along the way.

Felony AWDW
Chris and his team did an outstanding job in providing me confidence in their abilities when other lawyers used scare tactics. Not only were they personable, kind, and friendly, they were extremely knowledgeable and effective. While other lawyers weren’t sure these charges could be dropped, Chris and their team gave me the confidence I needed in this difficult situation! I can’t praise them enough! This team is definitely a recommendation from me!

AMAZING
The Powers law firm team, Chris, Bill and Melissa were amazing. They represented my daughter in a serious charge. This was a very detailed team ( follow their lead) and ultimately were able to get this dismissed. They were extremely Kind, responsive and most importantly extremely empathetic and helped us each step of the way with any questions and always made me feel comfortable and at some peace with what was happening and I am forever grateful for that in itself.. Thank you all again . Most importantly through this dark experience there is light as it helped my daughter get the help she needed for a past trauma she had experienced in her life .. THANK YOU ALL AGAIN

DMV Hearing
I lost my license permanently after a 3rd DUI in NC. I hired Carolina attorneys to represent me for my DMV hearing after a the 3 year waiting period required by the DMV. Chris Beddow was assigned to my case. His knowledge and expertise lead me through the long process of getting my license back. The DMV has numerous requirements that must be completed before they will even consider granting a hearing for possible driving privilege reinstatement and when they finally do grant an opportunity for a hearing there is no guarantee they will approve driving privileges. Without Chris's knowledge of how to maximize my chances of restoring my driving privileges I would of most likely been denied. Instead, I did everything he and the firm suggested to me and the DMV hearing officer restored my driver's license. This is a game changer for me and my family. I highly recommend Chris and Carolina Attorneys. Thank you Chris!

This guy will fight until the end
I was arrested with a dui and just knew that I was going to get convicted. I hired Chris because he believed so much that he could help me. We lost in district court, but Chris believed we could win in superior court so he pushed on. His performance in court was insane. We WON!!! How does that happen? To have this guy on your side. Chris is so nice and really puts in the work. I was amazed at his performance in court. Would definitely recommend Chris to anyone!

Beyond impressed
Chris Beddow represented me for my DWI I got while visiting NC, I chose him because it felt like the other 7 offices I called wanted to just bank on my guilty feeling. He got my case dismissed! Chris maintained a professional, consistent and human manner from the beginning with me.

Aide and abet
Atty. Beddow represented us in a DWI Aide and Abet charge. He and his firm were outstanding in every aspect. They were genuinely invested into our case and went above and beyond to get this case dismissed in a timely manner.
