Mr. Minick was willing to help from day one and helped me through the entire court process for the better part of a year. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and he continues to help with any questions I have. His staff is very helpful and I will definitely go back to him for any other legal needs and would suggest him over any other lawyers in the Asheville area.

The criminal justice system is a complex network and can be both scary and intimidating--especially during a stressful time. Mr. Minick helped walk me through my options, and gave me a step-by-step procedure to follow to put myself in the best possible position. He cautioned patience and restraint during long periods of inaction, repeated court appearances and continuances, but it was exactly this counsel that led to the positive outcome in the case.
I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Minick. He is an expert in his field, and in Asheville, you can do no better.

I worked with James on a personal case and was pleased to find an honest and knowledgable view on the possible outcomes and the best approach. The staff at Minick Law were also knowledgable, kind and willing to assist me in whatever way possible. If I had a question, it was answered immediately or the right person was found to address it. I was given a step by step overview of how to handle my case and supported each step of the way. I have a lot of respect and appreciation for Minick Law!
