John Fanney is a TOP NOTCH attorney and someone I admire tremendously. He is a leader in the law, having a presence in the courtroom. John is widely regarded as one of the best trial attorneys in North Carolina. If I ever got in trouble in Raleigh, John would be the person I call. He's also a tremendously kind person, compassionate, and down-to-earth as they get. It's an honor to call him both professional colleague and friend. Bill Powers Charlotte Criminal Defense Lawyer
