“Over the course of the last 12 years, I have been afforded the tremendous opportunity of working with Tim Sellers with Sellers, Ayers, Dortch & Lyons P.A. I have had the pleasure of working with Tim as well as other partners within the firm such as Steve Sellers and Cynthia Jones on a wide variety of matters for multiple clients within the association industry.

While working in the association industry over the last fifteen plus years, I have worked with a number of firms and attorneys that practice association law within the Carolinas. Tim stands alone in his experience, approach, response time, knowledge and meticulous care as well as detail provided in his discoveries and legal opinions for his clients.

 While Tim Sellers and the Sellers, Ayers, Dortch and Lyons Firm is one of the most reputable and utilized firms in the Carolinas, Tim ensures that every client and matter always receives priority treatment as if you were his one and only client. An attention and level of service that is unique as well as few and far between in todays industry.

Tim Sellers is far more than an attorney, he has been a mentor and leader in the association industry for several years providing education, information and general assistance to all entities with regards to association law throughout the Carolinas.

While exceeding expectations of his clients as counsel, Tim also genuinely cares about each and every one of his clients. He has never missed the opportunity to check in, be it a holiday or just a general wellness check.

If you are seeking counsel or if you are looking for a Firm that provides exceptional service with counsel that you can trust to guide you and represent you or your association, I would refer Sellers, Ayers, Dortch and Lyons P.A.  hands down. Their counsel, experience and service that is extended to their clients is unmeasured.”

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Mr. Whitlow regarding my Social Security disability case. When the Social Security office repeatedly denied my disability claims and appeals, I reached out to Mr. Whitlow for his help.  Mr. Whitlow (and his assistant) was both kind and understanding about my situation.  He walked me through the process and communicated in a way that I understood.   My phone calls and emails were answered timely, and I felt very comfortable with my representation.  Fortunately, my outcome was favorable and I give that credit to Mr. Whitlow due to both his professionalism and knowledge of the social security system. I was actually just about to give up on my case when I called him and I am so happy that I did.   I would not hesitate to refer Mr. Whitlow to anyone who is frustrated by the legal process. He is an excellent attorney and goes that extra mile to provide the best legal services! Thanks again for your help! 


“I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Tim Sellers for 5 years. Tim is extremely knowledgeable, incredibly responsive, exceedingly organized and always makes me and other employees within my organization feel like a priority (even though we all know he is a very busy man.) Tim consistently expresses compassion and truly has a heartfelt interest in checking in on me and my family, which just speaks to the type of genuine person he is both from a professional and personal perspective. I have also had the pleasure of working with other Associates within the firm…Steve Sellers, Cynthia Jones and Sarah Frye. All of which exhibit the same extraordinary traits as Tim. I truly feel like we found an absolute gem with Tim Sellers and the entire firm.

“Lawyers like Mr. Brett Dressler are truly and exceptionally rare. My particular case was a long journey involving complex business matters. There were many unexpected twists and turns that required turn on a dime legal strategy and Brett always delivered “spot on” legal and personal counsel.

As the plaintiff against “multiple” defendants counsels one might’ve thought that the decks were stacked against us, but I could not have asked for a steadier hand and legal representation.”

Brandi P., Client

“Robert Whitlow was awesome. He made sure he was totally prepared and also that we were prepared. Because of his knowledge and professionalism our case went through without a hitch. His assistant Alicia Smith was also extremely thorough and knowledgeable and always had the answers to our questions. Thank you so much for your help.”
