Salvatore Popolillo III makes his client’s satisfaction a priority, utilizing a straight-forward approach along with an amiable disposition to confidently position them for a favorable outcome. Guided by empathy and compassion, he strives to build a relationship with every client and listen intently to each unique story so he is able to effectively lead them through the often-convoluted legal system. “I was raised to work hard, so, as long as there is good coffee, I’ll work ‘til I’m dead.  In addition to being a people pleaser, I am a people person who takes that extra time to make a client feel like a friend.”

Recognizing his lifelong calling as a lawyer, Sal converted his interest in the law and an innate ability to talk to people to a JD at Elon University, and subsequent success as an intern and associate at various New Jersey and North Carolina law firms. His experience includes work in personal injury and workers’ compensation, fiduciary and estate litigation, and exposure to NC Superior and District Courts where he successfully argued an array of pleadings.

Despite his New Jersey roots, Sal calls the Tar Heel State his true home. He enjoys the Charlotte restaurant scene, golfing, working out, and spending time with friends and his mini labradoodle in his spare time. While Brazil and Hawaii are favorite vacation spots of his, the best beach in his opinion is the Jersey shore.
