I worked with James Minick on a real estate transaction, and I can say there's not a nicer guy around. Not only was he courteous, but he knows how to communicate promptly and honestly. He has a great understanding of how important good relationships are, and I would certainly trust him as my attorney. It seems the people with whom he works also have great character and integrity. Would definitely recommend Minick Law!

I hired Minick Law Firm to help with a ticket that I received while on vacation in Asheville. Not only did he have my charged removed, he always assisted me with kindness and a genuine desire to help. I never felt like I was burdening or bothering Attorney Minick and his staff, as I was always greeted with hospitality. I wish that I was from the area so I could use Minick's services with all of my future tickets (hopefully there won't be any). 11/10 would recommend to ANYONE in this area. THIS MAN WILL HELP YOU.

After a serious dog bite incident that cost me a lot of money in medical bills and left me permanently scarred, a friend recommended me to consult with Lakota Denton, a personal injury lawyer at Minick Law. He was kind, attentive, knowledgeable, and invaluable helping me move ahead with my case.
