Dewey Brinkley is an outstanding attorney who combines legal expertise with strong commitment to the client. He put in considerable time and effort to learn the details of our case and to achieve the best possible outcome for us. He is highly experienced with court procedures and personnel and applies that knowledge to great advantage. Just as important, he kept us informed throughout the process, and he was always professional and personable to work with. We feel very fortunate to have received such excellent legal representation -- Dewey Brinkley is the best.
Attorney Dewey Brinkley is a great person, lawyer and a gentleman! The first time I called him, I remember it was back in Feb and I had just made a stupid mistake and was very worried and scared...He immediately asked me what the situation was and then told me exactly what we were going to do about it...he made me feel like he was in control, which he was, and he did not dilly dally or waste my time like one other attorney I had contacted who could not even give me a ball park of the cost...Attorney Dewey is not judgmental, never made me feel bad, ( I was already feeling bad enough, thank you) and he was super professional. I felt calm and like, yes, I am going to get out of this! Sure enough, he was there for me the first day of court, and was by my side every moment until the judge ruled. For the next 6 months or so, while I did community service, he was always a phone call or email away...he also advised me very wisely about an unrelated issue with an unpaid ticket and he was so right! Mr. Brinkley was there this past Sept when I went back for my dismissal and he was great. I like that he is very quiet and smooth and always looks sharp! :) . He knows his way around the court and the prosecutors, judges and everyone else obviously know and respect him. I am very very pleased with his representation and would highly recommend him. THE BEST! Barbara
To anyone reading this I want to let you know that I have been working with Dewey Brinkley for a few months and he has been very responsive and knowledgeable of the law and my case. I first looked on the web to find a lawyer for my case and his website jumped out at me as very professional and informative. That was important to me to be able to evaluate his qualifications. Also, during our initial consultation I felt very comfortable that he knew exactly what to do with my case. Since he was a former member of the DA's office he knew the ins and outs and would instruct me on the outcome. At the trial he was correct and the outcome was even better than expected.
I would highly recommend Dewey for you legal needs.
I was caught for a DUI and asked Mr. Brinkley to represent me. Although my case was never going to be in my favor(becasue I was drunk and caught driving in the wrong way), the help and support from him was outstanding. Being on time in court or having to meet up away from his busy schedule, visiting the site in the evening and trying to understand every little detail in my case were the highlights of this fine Lawyer. Mr. Brinkley on my request also pushed the verdict as far as he could so that I could live comfortably before I was remanded. I would definately recommend this lawyer to represent your case.
I can't say enough good things about Dewey. He represented my son on several traffic tickets and was amazingly able to get them all dismissed. Remarkable, efficient, and very, very reasonable charges.
One of the very best court attorneys in Raleigh!!
I thought Dewey did a good job for me. He was very reasonable, made himself available for you. Knew exactly what the other side was going to do.
I was very pleased with his service, and he took care of every thing in a timely manor. Also kept me well imformed of what was going on. I would highly recommend him to some one.
Overall, Dewey Brinkley was a great lawyer and was a tremendous help throughout the entire process. When I first met him I could tell that he was hard-working and knew what he was doing. I was at first worried by how this whole process was going to turn out, but Dewey kept everything under control and I knew I was in good hands. Things ended up getting cleared up way sooner then I thought they would. Dewey was very efficient in everything that he did and I was very please with all his work.
I reached out to Dewey following being arrested for a DUI in North Carolina. I had no idea what to expect or any idea about what the repercussions would be -- I just assumed the worst. But Dewey was fantastic about explaining to me my options, the different steps required, and what I should expect. He was also incredibly responsive to all of my questions via email and phone, and I knew that I could depend on him to represent me to the best of his ability in court. And, of course, he did! I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance, particularly for DUI/DWI issues in the state.
Dewey Brinkley is an incredibly talented and gifted attorney who actually cares. He is patient, answers all your questions, is respectful and 100% honest. Mr. Brinkley helped me during the most difficult and stressful time of my life when I was facing a felony charge. I have never met a lawyer as skilled or hard working as Dewey Brinkley - I would recommend him to anyone who needs the top gun attorney when things really go wrong and you simply need the best defense attorney in the state. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the case...a voluntary dismissal.
I had been arrested for driving while impaired. I wasn't proud of the circumstances, and thought the outcome was a foregone conclusion. Fortunately, Dewey Powell Brinkley thought differently. And fortunately, he was my attorney. Ultimately, the court ruled that my arrest for DWI had not been appropriate -- obviously these are my words, not the language of the court. From my perspective, this was not an easy case. Mr. Brinkley was tireless in his search for every aspect of the arrest that would support a plea of not guilty. Obviously, he found one. Mr. Brinkley is honorable, intelligent, experienced and tireless. I admire him as an attorney and respect him as a person.
