Recognized "10 Best DWI Attorney For Client Satisfaction" in North Carolina. 26 Years Experience.Recognized as one of the top DWI attorneys in North Carolina, we aggressively defend our clients.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Timothy’s comment: “In 1996, I accepted a position in Law at the University of Amsterdam for year. I hired another attorney to manage my practice while away. After moving to Europe, the attorney I hired left my practice without notice. It took me one month to sever ties with University and move back to USA to deal with pending clients she had left high and dry. The attorney I hired has since been disciplined extensively and is, frankly, a complete nut. Lesson learned.”

My Vanderweet won my case in Raleigh. He knew what he was doing. He's an excellent lawyer. HIGHLY recommended to anyone who needs a tough lawyer who will work for you.

Mr. Vanderweert specializes in DWI defense. I was very happy with his services. He knew the law, knew the courts, knew which judges would give me a good hearing. He didnt rush me through the process but took his time to do the best he could. He kept me informed about the process and made sure I understood what was happening. I would recommend him witout hesitation. Very happy.

Charged with a DWI in Fuquay. I was driving home, minding my own business, driving fine, when stopped for "weaving." Once stopped, I was charged with DWI because I did poorly on the officer's tests, Hired Mr. Vanderweert, partly because I was thankful for the amount of time he spent on the phone with me explaining my options and giving me advice without having yet hired him.
I'm extremely happy with the outcome because the case was dismissed by the Judge after seeing that the officer had no right to stop me in the first place. Mr. Vanderweert requested a copy of the police video of the stop and showed it to the Judge. He argued, successfully, that I was not weaving enough to allow the police to stop me.
Obviously, I'm very pleased that I was not found guilty. I think this is due, in large part, to having a lawyer who took the time to understand my case and had the intelligence and patience to defend me properly. Tim is a nice guy, easy to talk to, but he can really be tough in court.
As for his fees, he's not the cheapest but not the most expensive. His fee was very reasonable given the time and effort involved.
His office support staff was exceptional. Always available, pleasant, helpful.
All in all, very postive experience and highly recommended to others charged with DWI.
