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.

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!

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.
