A Cup of Coffee with 10 of the Top DUI Attorneys in the United StatesIn 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.

National College for DUI Defense


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.

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!

Best experience I've had at a law firm! James Minick took mine and my boyfriend's case with a 2 day notice before our court date and was able to have both of our charges completely dismissed. We felt completely confident in the incredibly simple process - leaving all technicalities in the hands of a true professional.

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.
