THE MINICK LAW DIFFERENCE
Our Asheville & Gastonia criminal, accident and personal injury attorneys are not general practitioners, but concentrate their efforts in particular practice areas: DWI defense, Criminal Defense, Family Law, Personal Injury and Workers Compensation. Minick Law Firm’s Asheville and Gastonia criminal & accident personal injury attorneys take pride in providing the injured and accused with full service legal representation.
We also understand the importance of remaining up to date on changes in the law. While the North Carolina Bar requires attorneys practicing in North Carolina to only complete 12 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) each year, our firm’s devotion to remaining cutting edge on legal developments is evidenced by the fact that our attorneys spent an average of 30 hours in legal education courses last year.
Our goal is to provide our clients with as much information as possible about the laws and consequences related to decisions about their cases.
Responsive representation is essential to effective representation and we have Asheville & Gastonia criminal, accident and personal injury attorneys on call 24 hours a day to assist you on your case and answer your questions. Our Mission is to clearly explain the law and consequences at every stage of your case so that you can make informed decisions on the direction of your case and attain the best possible outcome.
Being charged in North Carolina with driving while impaired (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) can mean jail time, court fines, loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, employment consequences, and financial uncertainty. These issues are magnified by the fact that North Carolina DWI/ DUI law is one of the most complex areas of criminal law in the State of North Carolina. Our Asheville DWI attorneys are certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and DWI investigation.
