The Law Office of Christopher A. Connelly is a full-service criminal defense firm. We are dedicated to vigorously representing our clients who are presently charged, or may be charged in the future, with a criminal or traffic matter. Mr. Connelly has been Certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a Specialist in State Criminal Law.

Of the several thousand lawyers in the Mecklenburg County Bar, only a few have have received this distinguished certification. Since 1987, he has represented thousands of clients in felony and misdemeanor cases - as well as traffic matters - in the Federal and State Courts. These include cases involving:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Driving While Impaired
  • Boating While Impaired (BWI)
  • Revoked / Suspended Licenses
  • Traffic Violations
  • White Collar Offenses (i.e. Fraud, Theft, Embezzlement, etc.) and
  • Drug Offenses

He can also help to remove these offenses from your permanent record through Expungement

He has been involved in high-profile cases such as the Loomis-Fargo theft and drug cases involving anywhere from 150 kilos of crack cocaine to several tons of marijuana.

Law enforcement will frequently try to convince, or even coerce, you into giving a statement with false promises of favorable treatment. But whatever benefit you get from "hanging yourself" is far outweighed by the damage you will do to your case. The most important thing to remember if confronted by law enforcement is to say and do nothing. You are never required to give evidence or testimony against yourself. Whatever information the police want can always be given through this attorney at a later date and only if it is beneficial to you.

Schedule a consultation to discuss the particulars of your situation and strategies for obtaining: restoration of driving privileges for DUI / DWI defendants, avoidance of increased insurance rates, or driver’s license suspension for people who have been cited for speeding or reckless driving or traffic matters.

If you would like a free initial consultation on your case, please feel free to call or email us or fill out the contact form. We will return your inquiry as soon as possible.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
