I was falsely accused of DWI last July simply for failure to burn headlamps at night….After passing the Breath Test and, in my opinion, the field tests, I was STILL arrested and charged….It was long and grueling but we won my case in front of a Jury. NOT GUILTY!!!…I would encourage anyone charged with DWI offense to call James Minick at Minick Law.
I was found not guilty!
James Minick was my attorney for an alleged DUI/DWI. He went above and beyond with regard to my case. He requested video tape and official documents from the officer and the state. Without this evidence I would have lost my case!…His thorough questioning of the current laws/education of the officer and mistaken recall of the officer, actually gave me a fair trial! I was found not guilty! Anyone who needs an attorney who will actually take the time to fight for his clients should hire him. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! Thank you James!!!
very pleased with the outcome
Truly one of the nicest and knowledgeable staff around. I would highly recommend Mr. Gilligan’s services. He and his staff helped me feel informed and at ease through the process. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.
I knew then our legal system was still alive!
