Driving While Impaired Frequently asked Questions:
In February 2015, James Minick, the NC DWI Guy and Founder of Minick Law, co-authored A Cup of Coffee with 10 of the Top DUI Attorneys in the United States. This is meant to be a guidebook for anyone facing a DWI charge and its consequences. The Minick Law Team of DWI Attorneys is devoted to providing top of the line DUI Defense.
Being charged in North Carolina with driving while impaired (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI) can mean jail time and court fines, loss of driving privileges, increased insurance rates, employment consequences, and financial uncertainty. These issues are magnified by the fact that DWI/DUI law is one of the most complex areas of criminal law in the State of North Carolina. In addition to handling misdemeanor DWI charges, we handle Habitual DWI cases, Felony Driving While Impaired, Federal Driving Under Influence (DUI charged on Federal lands or parkway), Cherokee Tribal Court DWI, and Drug Related Impaired Driving cases (including marijuana DWI charges).
James Minick is an excellent lawyer and helped me fight my DWI case in Asheville. I got charged in 2012. From the beginning he was extremely helpful, professional, and informative with my case and was confident he could prove I was not guilty. His entire Minick Law team was friendly and always available to me. The case finally went to trial recently in 2015. During the trial James Minick proved me not guilty of my DWI case. After being told by other law firms I visited before going to Minick Law that I could not win my case and to just plead guilty, I am extremely glad I visited Mr. Minick instead. I highly recommend James Minick and his team for any legal issues.Carissa B.

The volume of DWI/DUI charges in Hendersonville has increased drastically in recent years due in large part to increased efforts to train law enforcement officers to identify and investigate impaired drivers. Arrests for DWI / DUI in Henderson County (including the City of Hendersonville) have totaled over 525 in 2014. We expect the number of DWI / DUI arrests in Hendersonville for 2015 to exceed 2014 totals.
Recent changes in North Carolina law have made it easier to prosecute DWI / DUI in Hendersonville and have imposed harsher penalties for those convicted of a North Carolina DWI / DUI. The Henderson County District Attorney‘s Office is one of the few prosecutorial offices in North Carolina that has a DWI / DUI Task Force.
At Minick Law, P.C., our Hendersonville DWI lawyers have adapted to these changes and are ready to defend your case.
