Chris McCartan grew up in Buffalo, New York, and has lived in Concord since 2002. As the child of a single mother, he learned the values of hard work and responsibility from one of the most incredible women in the world.
A graduate of Syracuse University, Chris received his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and his Master’s Degree in Public Administration. He was also fortunate to leave SU as a National Champion, Captain, and three-year starter of the Orange lacrosse team. Chris went on to receive his law degree from the University of Buffalo.
Chris moved to North Carolina and was hired as an associate with the law firm now called Powers McCartan, a group he has been a partner with for the last four years. He practices criminal defense almost exclusively, with a particular focus on Driving While Impaired (DWI) and Misdemeanor Offenses.
Away from the office, Chris was a two-term Chairman of the Cabarrus County Republican Party, and was also a member of the Party’s Board At-Large prior to being elected. He is also a partner in a commercial real estate corporation, with its two main holdings being 8 Church Street (the old Yorke & Wadsworth building) and 24 Cabarrus Avenue (the old Shuford Insurance building) in Downtown Concord. Chris is the Head Coach of the Cabarrus County Clash, a lacrosse program for boys and girls of all ages; the Chairman of the Barber-Scotia College Board of Visitors, the school’s chief outreach board; and a member of the Concord Downtown Development Corporation.
Chris focuses his practice on the areas of DWI Defense, Criminal and Traffic Defense, and license restoration and preservation issues with the DMV.
