Serving Our Community Since 1915

At Pope McMillan, we have strong ties to the community of Iredell County. As members and leaders of this community, we have invested our services to making the lives of our clients better. As one of the oldest law firms in the county, we have a number of experienced attorneys that have a historic perspective on the issues that matter most to the residents.

Workers Compensation

Workplace injuries are, unfortunately, a common occurrence in North Carolina. Luckily, North Carolina put in place a Worker’s Compensation scheme designed to provide benefits to employees injured on the job in order to help them with their recovery. The specific law that puts this system in place is Chapter 97 of the North Carolina General Statues, better known as the "Worker’s Compensation Act."

Real Estate, Land Use, & Zoning

At Pope McMillan, our attorneys are highly regarded throughout North Carolina for their knowledge and experience in real estate, land use and zoning issues. Whether you are attempting to get a property rezoned or get a specific project through city hall, we can advise you. We will carefully evaluate each client’s matter and advise on the best route. We will pursue whatever legal action is necessary to meet your objectives.

Family Law

When you are faced with one of the most challenging times of your life, you should take the steps necessary to protect your family and yourself. One of the most important considerations is what attorney to hire as you work through a difficult family law matter. At Pope McMillan, we grasp just how devastating some of these legal issues can be for a client.

Estate Planning & Administration

Estate planning is the careful consideration of what happens to your property when you become incapacitated or when you pass away. Good estate planning protects your assets, plans for your care and outlines your wishes for your loved ones when you are gone.

Personal Injury

The Attorneys at Pope McMillan are experienced North Carolina personal injury attorneys who represent the rights of those injured in Statesville and other areas of North Carolina.

Civil Litigation

At Pope McMillan, we work with clients to effectively and efficiently handle their civil litigation needs. Whether your matter arises from doing business or from a personal injury, our attorneys will strive for a just result.

Social Security Disability

Federal and State laws provide social security benefits for individuals with a disabling condition that prevents them from working. The term "disability" is defined to cover specific types of conditions, all of which must be expected to last at least one year or result in death. The Social Security Administration maintains a list of criteria that are applied to a disabling condition to determine whether said condition constitutes a total disability. These criteria can be complicated to understand, but the Attorneys at Pope McMillan can help evaluate your injury to determine whether you and your family members are entitled to benefits as a result of your condition.

Traffic Citations/Tickets

The Attorneys at Pope McMillan, P.A. have extensive experience handling traffic tickets and citations for drivers from across the country. The city of Statesville sits at the intersection of Interstate 77 and Interstate 40, roadways that see millions of drivers a year. Being located in such an area means that drivers from across the nation pass through Statesville every day. This also means that some of those drivers receive traffic citations, along with many local drivers who also receive tickets. The Attorneys at Pope McMillan can help these drivers by fighting tickets, having traffic-related charges reduced, or getting those charges dismissed all together.

Business Law

Whether you are considering starting a business or you are an industry leader, the attorneys at Pope McMillan can help you with all your business legal needs. We can help employers or employees with common issues such as unemployment benefit disputes and noncompete agreements. From assisting new business owners with important initial decisions such as business corporation entity selection to current business owners requiring legal counsel on issues such as a sale of business, we have the experience that matters.
