5.0 stars 57 totalReview James Minick
Very knowledgeable and professional while also being compassionate and understanding. He takes care of the majority of the work for you and makes the whole process progress along quite seamlessly. Soon after talking with him on the first day, he had created an "action plan" in which he laid out exactly what I could expect of him and what I needed to do to be prepared for each step of the way. He has developed relationships and connections for the various required steps of North Carolina from assessment and treatments to car insurance to help you with every possible detail.
Recently James Minick represented my 21 year old son for an open container violation as well as possession of a controlled substance. He was very swift to return phone calls and laid out a variety of options. He cares for his client's long term wellness by listening to their needs and situation. He follows up to make certain those needs have been met.
You couldn't ask for more from James Minick and his team at Minick Law. They truly out represent other DUI attorneys. in WNC. I was treated with respect, kept informed, and well represented in my own DUI case that was dismissed after being tied up in court for over a year, thanks to James and his team. I couldn't recommend a better Law Firm to handle your case.
I was charged with a DUI and Mr Minick was responsive , attentive and got me the best situation , given my guilty plea His council and that of the staff, especially Holly,was competent and very responsive and Professional I recommend his firm for all you who unfortunately need a lawyer I just hope I never will see him again
I hired Attorney Minick after I was accused of a crime I did not commit. I reside in another area in NC from Asheville, so I did my due diligence of researching an attorney for my case.
I called a handful of attorneys in the area based upon a Google search. I was most impressed with Mr. Minick, especially when he expressed his sentiment for my case. In fact, he was the only person who understood what I was going through, and his sentiments alone were of deep appreciation.
In short, I could not have asked for better representation. He was careful with my case and in the end, all was positive. It was somewhat of a complex case, and he knew exactly what to do, and when to do it.
Attorney Minick is not only a fine attorney but a good man. I am very grateful to him for handling my case,
I visited James (Jake) a few days after my citation for DWI. I was impressed as soon as we spoke. Very professional, very direct and very friendly. He explained what our steps would be and what to expect. Everything went perfectly. James saved my a lot of money and my case was resolved to my utmost satisfaction. I recommend this attorney as OUTSTANDING.
Last year I was pulled over, and long story short, charged with a DWI. I was frustrated with why the officer had pulled me over, and was convinced he did so illegally. After hiring the Minich Law team and informing them of my suspicions, James immediately sought to get the dash cam video before it was deleted. After a year in court, James and I were finally able to get the dash cam video which clearly showed that the officer had no legal reasons to stop me. In court the Judge agreed with the video and the charges were dropped. If it wasn't for James effort and knowledge of the legal system, that evidence would have been gone. Asheville police have become more and more aggressive with DWI charges, and sometimes can make mistakes and wrongfully charge someone. That is when the Minick Law team comes in and helps seek justice.
My case had terribly weak evidence and evidence and circumstances that made me shocked I was being arrested let alone charged.
Because of this I went cheap on my legal defense. I shouldn't have. My blood results tool 2 years to return. After another 6 months the state was ready to present their case. I might as well had represented myself.
A judge found me guilty. My case was appealed to superior court for a jury trial.
I had seen Attorney Minick defending another client of his that day in my trial. I like to think my legal experience gives me insight on how to judge an attorney. All I could think after my guilty plea is how I wish I could remember his name. As luck would have it I later ran into his client. He had great things to say about the work Attorney Minick had done for him. I was able to get the name and number.
I retained the services of Attorney Minick. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He kept me informed leading up to the trial.
During trial he demonstrated knowledge far superior to what I have observed in other attorneys. More than that, I observed him do things with out notes, delivering arguments and not missing a beat nor leaving out an importing point.
He is a rare combination of hard work, intellegence and talent. He is also by all measure a very decent human being, husband and father.
I'm sure there are plenty of good lawyers in Asheville, and I'm sure some can be hired for a lower rate. I wouldn't even consider another attorney in an area where Attorney Minick practices. Don't be like me, save yourself the time and money, a poor choice in lawyer can cost you. Get Attorney Minick from the start and from my experience you will have a great legal defense and about the best hope possible for the most favorable outcome.
10 out of 10
Mr. Minick gave me a free consultation that was incredibly thorough, kind and compassionate. This meeting helped me make very important decisions about how to handle an incredibly difficult legal situation. I will be forever grateful for his expertise, depth of knowledge and compassionate approach.
When looking for a lawyer you want someone who will do their job and do it right. James is a great lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone. Not only was he fast but also very helpful I'm explaining every detail of the process.
