I found Mr Vanderweert online, being skeptical I combed the reviews. But Mr Vanderweert is the most experienced I could find in the area. He was upfront about costs and expectations, patiently the case came to trial date, and Mr Vanderweert fought hard for my rights and I was found not guilty with a 0.08
Very happy for the outcome, and the professionalism
Much appreciation to him and his wonderful assistant Donna

My Vanderweert is an excellent and very knowledgeable DWI attorney who has an excellent paralegal 'Donna' to support you as a client. I blew a 0.26 in my DWI in June 2015 and my case was dismissed(Yes DISMISSED) this month. The only reason was because i hired the best in Tim. He is very professional and upfront on what to expect in each of the court dates and in my case i was lucky to have him. He not only knows the in's and out's of how the court dates work but also knows how to manuver any obstacles and get you in front of the right Judge and also in my case he played with the dates to extend my case to the last court date possible where he got it dismissed in front of the judge in just 5 mins.
i would recommend him without any doubts as your DWI attorney. I felt in safe hands with him and now that my case got dismissed i can now move on to better things in my life and breath a sigh of relief!! THANKS TIM & DONNA!!!

Mr. Vanderweert represented me recently and I was extremely pleased with his work. I never felt like I was in the wrong hands. He was extremely well priced compared to others that I found. He was always extremely honest and straight forward. He never made any false promises, even in the beginning when I wasn't sure if I would chose him as my attorney.
I would recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in a tough situation. He is on your team and knows how to make the correct calls to win the game.

I am a graduate student who found myself in a difficult situation about a year ago. I knew that the handling and outcome of my case was going to have repercussions beyond the norm of most people (academically and professionally), so I was INCREDIBLY thorough when initially researching representation. I spoke to approximately 10 attorneys, but Mr. Vanderweert stood out immediately. I was extremely satisfied with the level of care and attention with which he treated my case - he was always very honest and upfront with me, and I appreciated the open line of communication he extended. I was treated with professionalism and courtesy, even though my very long case was likely annoying. I would absolutely recommend his expertise to anyone who is looking for someone who is wise, knowledgeable, and aware of the gravity of the situation his clients are in.

I hired Tim after receiving my second DUI in 4 years. I read his reviews and never sought out any other attorneys to handle my case. He was very understanding and listened to my fears and concerns as having a second dui in 7 years is devastating! He was very honest in what the consequences were if I was found guilty but also reassured me that he would do everything in his power to help me. It just so happened that I was moving to another state and every question I had about how to handle the dui if convicted from my new state was answered and in detail. On my first court appearance he was very thorough and I felt as though he had my back come hell or high water! Tim's professionalism and knowledge of the law is worth more than I paid! My BAC was high, someone called in reckless driving, and after I was parked in a driveway an officer appeared out of nowhere ready to take me to jail. I never saw the officer any where near me on the road. I explained all of this to Tim. I had court yesterday but signed a waiver to allow Tim to go to court for me because I now live out of state. I received a phone call this morning stating that my case had been DISMISSED of any and all charges! HE knows what he is doing! If you need a lawyer please don't waste your time searching! His office manager Donna is exceptional! I dealt with her many times. She is professional, quick to respond to any questions I had and downright knowledgeable when it comes to Tim and his cases! I just can't thank them enough!!!!! What a blessing to have such an amazing legal team when dealing with such embarrassing and frightening charges! Thank you both!

I hired Tim in January 2015 after researching and reviewing his reviews. We met in person to discuss all the facts surrounding the situation, he was very professional and easy to talk to. We went to court 6 times until he liked the Judge however the last time he still didn't like the Judge so he motioned to move to DWI Court on the 4th floor where they have more experienced DUI Judges and understand the DUI laws fully. The defense brought in unexpected witnesses, after their testimony and the police officer's testimony Tim kept the cross examination to a minimum. In his closing statement he stated the FACTs that could not be disputed and the Judge had NO choice but to find me NOT GUILTY. I cant forget his paralegal, Donna Smith, every time I called she was there to answer the phone in person to go over any concerns I had. You cant go wrong with this team. Thanks again for the amazing Job !!! Worth every dime

My 22 year old son got charged in January with a DWI. We don't live in Raleigh, so I immediately got on the internet and Goggled "Best DWI Attorney in Raleigh" and Tim's name came up. I had my son call him and explain the circumstances and Tim said he would be happy to represent for a flat fee. This was fantastic, as I believe Tim when to court for him ~5 times having this case continued, waiting on the "right" judge. You see, It was going to be very hard to win the case since he blew .17. My son and I drove to Raleigh to meet with him and he could not have been any more professional and knowledgeable. Although the case got dismissed by the state, since the police officer no longer worked for the county, I have no doubt that Tim would have done the best possible job given my son's BAC. As for Donna, his paralegal, she was a Godsend. I had so many questions (as a mother) and she was always there to answer the phone and talk to me for as long as I needed. She also kept my son and I informed every step of the way as to what was going on with the case. Thank you both for everything you did.. you are one in a million. I guess my Google search proved to be correct.... Best DWI Attorney in Raleigh!

Tim is great! From his helpful paralegal Donna who is always reachable by phone and email to Tim's knowledge and reinsurance that everything will be fine. I was extremely worried about my situation but Tim has never lost a DUI case where the defendant blew below a .07 and this was no exception. He knew exactly what to do, when it came time to settle my case, he talked to the Magistrate and never had to argue my case in front of the judge or with the DA. I am so thankful for Tim's help, I don't know what I would have done if I lost my license.
I talked to a couple other highly rated local attorney's before choosing Tim, but Tim stood out to me because as soon as I told him about my case, with confidence he said he wanted my case. That confidence never left throughout the whole time working with him and Donna. If you have gotten a DUI, even if it's above the legal limit, I would highly suggest Tim. If (knock on wood) I ever have another case where I would need Tim's expertise, I would go to no one else but him.
I am always skeptical about reviews online, especially when who you decide to defend you is this important, but all of these reviews are spot on. I am glad to know that the reviews that also helped me choose Tim where all correct.

The thought of losing my license was devastating. However, as soon as I hired Mr. Vanderweert I had a sense of hope. The first thing he said to me was, "I can win this case." There was no hesitation in his voice and no doubt in my mind I had finally found the right attorney to represent me in court.
Throughout the time period it took for my case to go on trial I never felt out of the loop. Mr. Vanderweert and his paralegal Donna were excellent at keeping me up to-date on when I was to appear at court and what may be the outcome. Also, Mr. Vanderweert will make time out of his busy schedule to personally meet with you to discuss your case while Donna is only a phone call away for any questions you may have. They are an amazing team that puts YOU at the top of THEIR priorities.
So, if you're looking for a lawyer to represent you, don't click off this page. Go ahead and call Mr. Vanderweert's office and talk to him. He is very professional, devoted, trustworthy, and knowledgeable of the law. I highly recommend Mr. Vanderweert because without him I would not have WON my case!!
Thank you Mr. Vanderweert and Donna; you both truly helped me through a stressful time!
