Our Clients Say It Best

I am pleased to share my experience with Ms Powers when she represented me in a traffic violation case in Duplin Co. Ms Powers’ responsiveness, experience and her excellent results are the reasons I chose her to represent me. She was successful in the delivery of the outcome I hoped to achieve. I highly recommend Ms Powers for her outstanding legal counsel. A.F.

I was recently represented by Mrs. Powers in a legal matter. She was totally professional!!!! With me being in a different county, everything that could be done by email was. Mrs. Powers updated me regularly of anything that was received or any contact that was made between herself and the other attorney. Being updated when something that is so important in your life changes can be major. I appreciate her services more than she will ever know. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends. ♥️  S.G.T.

Attorney Ms. Powers did things with my divorce case no other lawyer could do or would do and needed to be done in order to enforce a court signed alimony agreement that my ex husband was behind in. So if your looking for a good lawyer, a lawyer to fight for you, and who never gives up, and who I call my pit bull ….in a loving, caring way …….. than she is the woman for you.

Great experience with a speeding ticket. There was an issue with the court house and my correspondences with Cristal Bautista were great and she was able to get it taken care of very quickly! Would recommend. A.M.

Best attorney in the world! Thank you Anita for representing me and for getting the BEST case desired outcome. K.W.
