A Great Help
I ran into a misdemeanor that could've resulted in jail time, received mail from Dummit Fradin requesting representation and ended up hiring Patrick. He and his paralegals fought hard on my behalf throughout several unexpected continuances of my case and the coronavirus pandemic momentarily shutting down NC's judicial system. They were also prompt in responding to any e-mails I sent regarding updates or questions. The end result was my case getting voluntarily dismissed. Couldn't be happier with the outcome and would definitely recommend him if you're looking for a criminal defense attorney.

Highly recommend Mr. Apple
I hired Mr. Apple to represent my daughter and once he looked over the case he informed me that he felt very strongly that he could get the case dismissed and that is exactly what he did after meeting with the DA. I highly recommend Mr. Apple

Highly recommend this law firm
I rarely drive on Interstates, however when my small dog got very sick I was put in a situation where I had too. As I was driving from Greensboro to NC State Veterinary Hospital I received a speeding ticket. As soon as I got home I reached out to Dummit Fradin they responded by email that evening and called next am. My lawyer Mr Apple and his paralegal Oscar Cerna responded quickly to all my questions and kept me updated on my case. I did not have to appear in court and no points were added to my record. I highly recommend this practice.

Limited Driving Privileges
After a brief consultation and review of my driving record, Mr Apple assured me that he could get my liscense back in about two weeks and that’s exactly what he did. I’m very pleased with the job he did.

Once I sat in the High Point Courtroom I quickly realized I would need a lawyer, & once I settled on Dummit Fradin I quickly felt comfortable with my decision. Everything was handled with clear and quick communication from the time I made a inquiry about their service throughout my time as a client. I became a client at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and they were still great at communicating with me the status of my case, the date changes, and anything else I needed to know. Not once did I have to reach out to them regarding anything because they reached out first. This was a complete stress free situation, and would recommend their services to anyone in need of it.

Keeps an eye on things
He told me I had a strong case and could likely get the case dismissed--and he delivered. Also important, he saved me from missing the court date. My case was moved but the courthouse never notified us. He was in court for another case, saw my name on the docket for that day and asked me if I could hightail it to the courthouse. Thank you for checking records.

Special Thanks to Patrick Apple for helping me through my case and providing a very positive outcome for me. He kept his word from the start and did a very good job at following up and returned each one of my calls when I had questions. Dummit & Fradin should be very proud to have a dependable person like Patrick. He will be highly recommended to others and he will be the person I contact if I need anything legal in the future. Awesome job again Patrick.

Very knowledgeable and quick to help!
I approached Patrick after my wife received a traffic violation. It was the first one she had ever received so we needed some guidance on how to proceed and what our options were moving forward. Patrick presented us with different paths we could take and outlined his recommendations for the best course of action. He was both prompt and detailed with his advice which gave us peace of mind and confidence as we moved through the judicial process. Will definitely be using Patrick for any future attorney needs.
