I have been licensed to practice law since 1980. For the first 25 years of my legal career, I worked for the Employment Security Commission and held a number of positions with that agency. During that time, I obtained a detailed understanding of the unemployment benefit system in North Carolina. From 1980-1991, I worked as an Appeals Referee and conducted unemployment benefit appeals hearings. From 1991-1997, I was the Chief Appeals Referee and was responsible for the conduct of all unemployment hearings in North Carolina. From 1997-2005, I held several positions in the agency's legal department, including Deputy Chief Counsel.
The cases mentioned in these testimonials are illustrative of some of the matters handled by Monteith Law, PLLC. It is important to recognize that the results in each case depend on a variety of factors unique to each case. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes in future cases.
Chuck Monteith provided me with excellent legal service. Chuck not only kept me informed through each step that needed to be handled, but also showed constant concern for my family’s best interest. Many times, our phone calls and emails were in the evenings and on the weekends. His professionalism and proficiency exceeded all my expectations. I would have no hesitation in using or recommending Chuck Monteith’s services in the future.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all you did for me during my case. Your knowledge and persistence in this matter was much appreciated. I very much appreciate the fair settlement achieved but would be remiss if I failed to mention your concern and kindness during this difficult but necessary process.
