Do not think for another second on retaining any other attorney—hire Katie Clary. She is responsive, diligent and one of the most intelligent people I have ever encountered. Her commitment to my family and our case made a world of difference. As someone who has (unfortunately) had to deal with a lot of attorneys, Katie was an absolute joy to work with.
In early 2019, I found myself accused of driving while impaired(DWI) and it was my first time in any legal trouble. The days following my arrest were some of the most stressful I’ve ever lived, but I immediately felt better after my initial consultation with Ms. Clary. The consultation put me at ease as she asked very specific questions, answered all my questions, and informed me of things I was very unaware of. She took extremely detailed notes and I definitely felt confident in her ability to resolved my case after the consultation so I didn’t even consult with anyone else. I decided she was the right one for me and my legal case so I hired her. The date of my court case was eventually pushed back a few times and then pushed back a year further due to COVID, but Ms. Clary and her assistant made sure to keep me very updated. Once the actual court case was approaching on July 2021, I received a call from her to further explain what the plan of approach was for my case. I knew I had the best lawyer by my side, but I was completely blown away at how well she handled herself in the courtroom. I arrived a bit early and overheard prosecutors refer to my case as the “Clary case” instead of using my name so they must’ve known she’s a tough lawyer. The plaintiff’s table was made up of three attorneys and the arresting trooper behind them, while it was just Ms. Clary and I on the defendant’s table. I’ll admit that seeing 3 prosecutors was a bit intimidating, but Ms. Clary was completely unfazed by it. The level of preparedness she came with was outstanding. I noticed she brought along the very same notes she had taken during my initial consultation more than 2 years prior. She presented a precedent court case that even the judge was impressed by. She takes so many notes that even her pen was begin to go low on ink. I don’t much about criminal law, but even I can tell the the plaintiff’s table was not prepared for Ms. Clary. They were often times scrambling through their files in order to counter argue and she even left them speechless a few times. One prosecutors in particular would turn red at the face because he could not counter argue against Ms. Clary’s evidence. Watching my court case play out in front of me, I felt I was in great hands. It was clear that my lawyer’s only goal was to win my court case, any other outcome was not an option. In the end she delivered exactly what she expected, finding me not guilty and having me expunged. She also informed me on what was next for me after being found not guilty. As we’re walking out, someone even tells her “every time I watch you, I learn something new”. That’s the type of lawyer everyone should want, one that’s a leader in her field and revered by her peers. I was more than delighted with the outcome she delivered, felt so much relief once the judge said “not guilty”. Hopefully I don’t find myself in any legal trouble again, but I’ll know who to depend in the future.
Mrs Clary was simply amazing to work with. Thank you for the best outcome possible.
Ms. Clary is very adept at what she does and was great at guiding me through this entire process. With her representation I received the best outcome I could have hoped for. I would also like to add her Legal Assistant Stephanie was awesome as well always communicating in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Ms. Clary to anyone in need of legal representation.
Generally speaking, I am not one to review a professional. However, today I feel like I owe it to others to inform them of what an amazing attorney Ms. Clary is. Not that I am always in need of an attorney, but life happens. Ms. Clary has been a rock to many people and she deserves the acknowledgement.
After a horrifying weekend where a trip to see my favorite band play turned into an instance of me being a victim of police brutality and being charged with crimes that were far more severe than the one I actually committed, I was broken, defeated, physically injured, and terrified that my job, my future, and my freedom were in jeopardy. I spoke to several lawyers who all empathized with my situation and said that they could get the charges reduced however only Katie really saw the truth in the matter that the cops had stopped me unlawfully, abused their power, broken protocol in many ways and left me physically, mentally, and emotionally battered in the process. She took my case incredibly seriously and worked diligently to collect all the evidence in order to present my side of the story to the DA. In the end she was able to get my case thrown out completely on the grounds of abuse of power, and lack of probable cause. I was convinced this trouble would be following me around for months to years so imagine my excitement and gratitude when she managed to do this in a matter of a few weeks! After that her and her firm were also about to handle the expungement of my case as well. She was reassuring, caring, supportive, assertive, and diligent every step of the way. I could not have asked for better representation. I would recommend her to anyone in the Mecklenburg area, especially anyone who is afraid that their side of the story will not be heard. With Katie that will not be the case. She is on your side 100%.
Mrs Clary was simply amazing to work with. Thank you for the best outcome possible.
I was grateful to have Katie representing me. She is sharp, on the ball, firm when necessary, and is incredibly through. She asks all the right questions, hones in on the details, and is extremely professional. I could not have asked for better representation.
Mrs. Clary is Amazing. Job well done for sure. Got my case dismissed. Could not be more happy with her services. Thank you Mrs. Clary, you’re the best.
The moment I shook hands with Katie in our initial consult I knew I was in safe hands. She was recommended to me by Cpt. Chuck Henson, who is familiar with the same defendent I have had issues with in the past. She not only prepared for the case in a very short amount of time, becoming very familiar and intimate with all pertinant details of the incident as well as prior history. Katie was tremendous in preparing me as well as my close friend who was indicated in the incident while trying to help me in a very dangerous situation. I was able to obtain a 50B for a years time and she also has offered to attend my next court date for the DA’s prosecution. One that I missed before due to a number of reasons, one a great lack of confidence. I believe with Katie by my side at the trial I will absolutely be able to follow through. I would not hesitate hiring Katie or recommending her to any friend, associate or aquaintance.
Ms. Clary is the precisely kind of attorney I had hoped to find to assist me in my legal matters. She is highly skilled and very competent in her legal knowledge and is able to articulate matters and concerns she has in ways that lay people can understand. As a client that was more concerned with outcomes than time frames, she worked with me to achieve the best possible resolution and did not attempt to pressure me to reach a more expedient resolution. She was more than willing to continue the case until she felt that the best resolution could be reached. in communications Ms. Clary or her assistant(s) was always prompt in communicating with me, and kept me adequately informed.
I was pleasantly surprised, on multiple occasions, when discussing the legal strategy of my case with Ms. Clary because she always seemed to have another approach or angle to explore. From requesting evidence, to impeaching potential witnesses, allowing and disallowing continuances, there was always another way to deal with my case. As a client this is something that really made me feel good about the abilities of my attorney.
My overall experience with Ms. Clary was resoundingly positive, and i would highly recommend her services.
When I first contacted the law firm Ms. Clary was immediately available to meet with me and listen to what I had to tell her. She was very informative and professional. I had no idea what my chances were for my case but after listening to what I had to say she told me immediately what she could do for me and the likelihood of being exonerated. The fees were straight forward, no hidden costs and they allowed me to make payments which was helpful. Action was taken immediately on my behalf, I risked losing my license and she was able to prevent that from happening, which allowed me to go to and from work without having to worry constantly about my case. Each time I had a case coming up her Legal Assistant would notify me and remind me of the dates and times of upcoming hearings. Ms. Clary and the law firm was always available for any questions I had. I’d certainly recommend her, I was able to trust her with my case and focus on life.
I received a speeding ticket recently which could have affected me in many negative ways. Ms. Clary took this to court for me and resolved quickly having the charges reduced and resulting in a positive manner, less charges and no points on my license. I cannot be more thankful for her and her firm who represented me in such a professional and effecitve manner. Though I was worried I am no longer and would definitly refer my family and friend to her. Upon the initial email I sent there was never a delay or question to how this could be handeled for me. The follow up was also quick which I appreciated so. Thank you to Stepahnie who responded so kindly and answered any and all questions I had concerning this matter
This matter for our grandson was handled in a manner that I believe will keep my grandson on the correct path. Very easy to work with your firm, thank you
Thank You Mrs Cunningham Clary, I’m very pleased with your job, you are awsome, you and your firm are the best in everything.
God Bless you.
The results Ms. Clary obtained while representing me were better than I was originally led to believe. I can only describe it as “magic”. I hope I never have to use her services again, but if I ever do, I won’t hesitate one bit to contact her.
