highly recommend this law firm
I spoke with Mr. James K. Minick with regards to helping me get my driver's license reinstated. He was very respectful, upfront and honest with me. He basically saved me $2K or possibly more by being honest. Most attorneys would have their hand out wanting money and giving false hope. I truly appreciate Mr. Minick. I would highly recommend this law firm for any service that they offer.

Mr. Minick is an excellent DWI attorney who analyzes every aspect of the law to help fight your case. He truly cares about his clients and is prompt in his communication. If you have been charged with DWI, hire Mr. Minick--he's the best around.

Strongly Recommend Attorney Minick & Minick law! He was an incredible asset during a very stressful time (DUI).

I can't speak highly enough of his representation and encourage anyone facing a DUI or otherwise to give Minick Law a call, you won't regret it (even if you regret whatever may be bringing you to his office!).
I had a wonderful experience with the staff at Minick Law, and was pleased with the work that James Minick himself did on my behalf. He not only worked before and during my case, but helped guide and assist me two years afterwards. He's a good man, but also highly intelligent and he knows how the legal system works.
Attorney Minick and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. All questions were answered in a timely, respectful, and friendly manner. The firm's attorneys are devoted and their areas of expertise are far-ranging. This firm is top-notch!
