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.
