Best Attorney AND an Awesome Person
I first contacted Jason with a outstanding warrant for failure to appear at a court for a misdemeanor marijuana possession. I was skeptical because I've never worked with a attorney before and had heard that they're all scum and money hungry. After speaking with Jason on the phone for the first time, I immediately knew that he was different and really cared about people and helping them. He gave me an EXCEPTIONAL retaining fee to get my warrant withdrawn and take on my case to get it dismissed. While other attorneys were trying to charge me over $1500 for my very small case, he made it super easy for me to hire him. Taking care of my case was a very long process, because in the middle of handling my case I relocated to NY. He had to continue my case every month for 6 months until I was able to make it back to NC for the "First Offender's Program" to get the dismissal. Jason not only handled my case for almost a year and a half but he never asked me for any more money than we had originally agreed upon. Every time we have spoken over the phone he has always told me, "Never hesitate to call me for anything, you're never bothering me." I've never spoken too or worked with any attorney that was so passionate about the people he works with and actually cares about how he handles those people! I would definetly recommend him,and the rest of his firm, to anyone with any issue in Guilford county. He will forever be my favorite attorney! If I could give a higher rating I would!

Awesome Lawyer
Contact Jason last year due to some trouble I got into with shoplifting. I had a prior charge for the same offense three years earlier. Once I set up a meeting with Jason he assured me that this is something he can handle. So I went ahead hired Jason to represent me. Once I did he made everything happen. He informed me that I could get my prior case expunged while he continued my current case until the expungement was finished. Once my expungement was complete a new court date was set. Jason showed up and let me know my new case was dismissed like it was nothing. Throughout the whole process Jason and his associates kept me informed by phone and letters with updates. Anytime I needed to get in contact with him with further questions he was always there to answer. He had definitely been one of the best lawyers I've ever had.

USN, Ret.
I was involved in an altercation that would forever change my life. I was referred to Jason Aycoth for help. Help wasn't all I received. Jason discussed my case with the DA. Together after reviewing my case, they took my personal record and military record into consideration. Next, a miracle was presented. Jason and the DA gave me a path to resolving my case and a path to clear my record. I've never had to use an attorney in this capacity but, rest assured, Jason Aycoth and his team earned a 5 star rating from me. I fully endorse and recommend him to any potential clients.

He’s who you want!
I am beyond satisfied with Mr. Aycoth’s services. I ran into an unfortunate situation with the law and was referred to Jason by a mutual friend. Jason only made men one promise and that was to pool all his resources and give my situation his all. He held true to his word and was able to get my case completely dismissed and my funds returned. I couldn’t thank him enough.

Best Attorney in Greensboro
I met Mr. Aycoth in 2014 through referral from a close friend. I had already heard so many good things about him i honestly didn't think he could out do their presentation of him but he did. He makes you feel comfortable about your situation and that your 100% in good hands. I've had other attorneys in Greensboro before but honestly there's not one attorney who cares about you and your situation as Mr. Aycoth does. He is not like most lawyers who are just after money. He truly has the best interest in you & your situation. I can tell you since meeting Mr. Aycoth he is very hardworking, sincere, emphatic, and very diligent because Mr. Aycoth goes over and beyond for his clients. I was wrongfully accused at the end of 2016 right before Christmas. Facing multiple felonies I lost my job and missed out on alot of opportunities and didn't know if i would bounce back from it. It was a Stressful situation knowing you love what you do and have a family to feed. I told Mr. Aycoth the situation and he told me Dont stress yourself J i got you. He's a man of his word and long story short Mr. Aycoth went over and beyond to made sure my name was cleared and helped me get everything back on track. He keeps in contact with you whether he calls you or sends you a email and also is at every court date. I promise you he is the best in this area by far and u can't go wrong with Mr. Aycoth. His work is beyond 5 stars.

Mr. Aycoth, who insisted I call him Jason, was hired by me to help with my only ever criminal misdemenor charge. I researched lawyers and his great reviews convinced me. From the moment I met with him, he was genuine and sincere. He worked very deligently for me and talked me through the process. This was my first time being charged with anything and I was very nervous. I did what he asked and he worked very fast on getting my case dismissed. As soon as it was, I was relieved. He always answered my emails and called me back when I had questions. His fees are good and I would hire him again.

A great man and a great attorney
Jason is the best attorney I have ever worked with in my entire life and I was absolutely blessed to find him. Jason worked with me on my case for nearly two years and eventually negotiated with the district attorney (DA) to have my charges dismissed. Given the uniqueness of my case and my situation, he never gave up and continued to try to work with the DA to have my case dismissed. After several deals I refused from the DA, Jason continued to show the same tenacity from day one of working with me, which eventually led to a decision that worked in my favor. I can honestly say without a doubt if I had hired any other attorney, my case would have been resolved much differently. Jason was such a pleasure to work with and always helped me keep my chin up when I was saddened about possible outcomes. He went far and beyond the call of duty to help me through my case and I can't thank him enough. If you're looking for an attorney who cares and will continue to work with you through the thick and thin, hire Jason.

I would recommend Jason to everyone!!
I had a situation that needed to be resolved expeditiously. I call Jason Aycoth. He resolved the issue quickly. He treated me with the utmost care and respect. Everyone I spoke to in his office was courteous. I have attempted to get this matter resolved through other attorneys in the area. None came close to the experience I had with Jason and his team. I highly recommend you taking the time to hire Jason Aycoth. Jason my family and I are grateful for you! We send you the highest regards. Jerome-El
