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.

Josh Valentine

always available...very organized

Strongly Recommend Attorney Minick & Minick law! He was an incredible asset during a very stressful time (DUI). Minick was always available to answer questions and very organized so I was in the know every step of the way. 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!).

James Easter

wonderful experience

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.
