The name on my case is actually Raymond Thompson, Floyd Tune Same Person! Let me start by saying James Minick is a total professional and a top shelf lawyer quite possibly the best in the south east. Nc's best for sure. His representation of me proved that month after month. My case lasted 3 yrs not once did James lose faith, James would always keep me up to date about what was going on with my case. And in the end all charges were dropped. DUI/DRUGS, Carrying a concealed weapon, Open container and failure to maintain lane control.I had total confidence in James from the Get Go. If you need a lawyer and have any doubt about who you might want to hire I recommend James Minick 100% five star. Thank you once again James and if I should need it harder for anything in the future he would definitely be the one.read more

Being my first DWI, unfamiliar with Buncombe County where my incident occurred, and residing 6 hours away, I had to start out at step one upon finding trustworthy and professional representation. After much research, Minick Law topped my list. The Minick Law team is courteous, respectful, knowledgeable, EXTREMELY timely with responses and carry themselves with the utmost professionalism. I could not have selected a better attorney than James Minick. In the courtroom, he has a presence that carries respect, honor and heart. Being an attorney may be his technical profession, but truly caring about the client he represents speaks volumes in my book.read more

James and his staff were extremely outstanding from start to finish. The staff was great for getting back to me with any questions I had in regarding my case. James has great experience and always figured out ways to help in my case dealing with the federal court system. James always had the time to speak to me about everything and was very positive and friendly. I was from Charlotte and I recommend James for any case, and I will definitely use him again in any circumstances. Thanks James for a great job!read more

Your Rights

Our NC DWI lawyers will explain your rights and the strengths and weaknesses in your DWI case.  

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 Approach

In order to prepare a thorough defense to your DWI charge, it is important to know how police officers and district attorneys investigate and prosecute DWI cases.

Our NC DWI lawyers are required to attend the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration‘s (NHTSA) course on DUI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing.

This is a three day (24 hours) course taught to police officers when they are being trained in charging DWIs. Our NC DWI lawyers regularly attend conferences and training related to North Carolina’s DWI laws.

Plan of Action

Your NC DWI lawyer will personally meet with you from the very beginning of the attorney-client relationship. After the meeting your DWI lawyer will create an individualized DWI Action Plan that will help you prepare for the case process and the consequences of the DWI charge.

We believe that effective DWI representation cannot be accomplished without excellent communication. At any time during or after your case, our NC DWI lawyers can meet with you to discuss your DWI charge, and we will keep you apprised of all developments in your case, keeping you in the loop.

James Minick winning this case helps the entire community and I would recommend anyone to go see James Minick…He’s trained in the same things that the officers are certified in so he knows DWI law.
