very pleased with the outcome
Truly one of the nicest and knowledgeable staff around. I would highly recommend Mr. Gilligan’s services. He and his staff helped me feel informed and at ease through the process. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case.
confident and very professional
Just so happened to notice this firm in town while I was in a pinch. The attorney on my case appeared confident and was very professional, explaining certain nuances of the legal system and answering my many, many questions. And I should note that I was very pleased with its outcome. If you need legal defense in Waynesville, I highly recommend this firm!
I was charged with a DWI back in October 2015.. The Asheville police DWI task force charged me with DWI. My income solely depends on transportation to and from job sites and to perform service calls. …I highly recommend his firm to anyone who has been charged with a DWI. Mr. Minick is the DWI guy!
