I receive a speeding ticket in Asheville, NC about a month ago. I found Minick Law on the internet and chose them based on someone answering the phone instead of voicemail. I'm so glad they answered. Stephanie answered the phone and gave me all the information I needed in detail, which made it all the more easier to choose this firm. The results were just what I was hoping for and feed back was very prompt. I highly recommend Minick Law and will choose them if ever needed again.read more

I was allowing my 15 year old nephew to drive in Waynesville, N.C.. He had not received his permit yet, through no fault of his, and I was allowing him some experience. A lady pulled from a driveway on Mainstreet, and clipped our car. No charges were filed in the accident (limited damages), but I had inadvertently failed to renew my collision insurance the previous month, and, I was allowing an underage, unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle, a serious charge in N.C.. The insurance was back in force the next day, but the unlicensed driver charge could have been a Class 1 Misdemeanor, again, a serious charge. James arranged for these charges to be dismissed.I founded and build an Assisted Living Company whose Portfolio Value exceeds $40M, with over 500 employees. Our Corporate Legal Representation includes attorneys who bill $500+ an hour. The representation James provided was on par with these, and his results exceeded many of them.Thank you, James and Stephenie..!!read more

I contacted Minick Law to help me expunge a 20 plus year old warrant that I didn't even know about. Their legal assistant and attorney took my information about the case over the phone and correspondence thru email and were able to take care of everything for me at a very reasonable fee. I was and am very pleased with their work. If you need good people on your side, definitely give Minick a call.read more

Mr. Minick was very kind and professional. He made me feel comfortable and confident every step of the way, and in court he clearly knew everyone there and had arranged the result before I even spoke to the judge. Definitely worth the money for peace of mind.

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
