Ardent Advocate
The law is a complex language system that requires a guide. The quality of your experience and ultimately your outcome depends on who leads you through the process. Laktoa Denton has a firm grasp of the law and a realistic perspective that is necessary and refreshing. My family was represented by Lakota on a personal family matter. He was able to help us articulate our position more clearly, and helped me see the perspective of the other side. This was instrumental in deciding how to move forward and in preparation for potential outcomes. What I feel people should know about him, is that he will listen, he will explain the law in plain English, and he will develop a strategy for success that you can understand and are comfortable pursuing. He does not paint the world different than it is and he will not judge you for perspective. Lakota's presentation of the potential outcome was on point. I consider Lakota an advocate who uses the law to help and am grateful to have worked with him.

Excellent Attorney for Auto Accident Representation
Lakota managed legal affairs related to a no-fault auto accident I suffered in 2016. Having had a history of post-concussion syndrome, I took quite the beating from this accident. Lakota and his team were able to settle the best amount they could, and took excellent care to make sure all of my medical bills were taken care of.

automobile accident
Lakota gave me some very useful advice over the phone about an auto accident I was involved in. Despite the fact my case is a losing one, he helped me out tremendously. He responded to my email promptly and he obviously cares about the wellbeing of others.

Review of Services - Lakota Denton
Mr. Denton was referred to me by a paralegal at a prestigious law firm as someone who has a reputation for competency and success in obtaining suitable awards for his clients. I retained Attorney Denton to recover medical costs and pursue damages from an “at fault” driver’s insurance company after an automobile collision. That insurance company was not accepting its liability and wouldn’t even return my calls. Attorney Denton’s services were outstanding and I was pleased and impressed with his respectful demeanor. He was thorough and proactive in explaining every aspect of the proceedings demonstrating an unusually wide range of process and interpersonal competencies. From my initial meeting with him to the final settlement, he was understanding, supportive and responded to all my questions and concerns without delay. He represented my interests with tenacity until an equitable settlement was attained. I would recommend Attorney Denton without reservation to anyone seeking representation in a personal injury case.

Caring and Responsive Lawyer
Mr. Denton helped me with my car accident case. I was hit by a drunk driver and suffered serious injuries. Mr. Denton walked me through the entire case and kept me informed every step of the way. The staff was also very friendly and responsive. I would highly recommend calling Minick Law to anyone who wants to be treated with respect while getting the quality legal advice you need!

Highly skilled and caring Attorney, helped settle a complex Workers' Comp claim.
Less than a year ago I approached Lakota Denton for legal assistance with a difficult Workers' Compensation claim involving a complex occupational disease that I developed as a result of the labor I did and the work load I maintained for eight years at my former Job. My employer had refused to recognize my illness as work related, so I proceeded by seeking legal council at Minick Law and I am truly thankful that I did. Lakotas' professionalism and intelligence, though remarkable, are hardly his best attributes. He is kind and personable which is rare in his field, but above all he is diligent and dedicated to protecting the rights of his clients whomever they may be. Though aspects of my case were tedious and often frustrating, he never ceased to be reassuring, calm and confident. The litigation that Lakota and his team built and brought forth to the opposing council allowed us to settle our claim without going to court for a sum my family and I were very satisfied with. I would recommend Lakota and Minick law to my closest friends and family members.

Great attorney, helped me settle my car crash claim.
Lakota helped me with a difficult car crash claim a year ago. We just settled the case and I am very happy with my settlement amount. He helped me make sure medicare was completely paid off and I still ended up with a good settlement after all the bills were paid.

Excellent Attorney
Attorney Denton was professional, respectful, but very easy to talk with. He explained things in a manner that I could understand. Even though my case wasn't a big one he wanted to accept it because it was the right thing to do and he truly wants to make a positive impact. I will definitely use his services in the future if needed and I highly recommend him.

Mr. Denton is absolutely your best choice!
We went to Minick Law after working with another attorney for one year and receiving no results. Lakota Denton took our case and in one week he got more done than the other attorney did in one year. He was amazing. He kept in constant contact with us, was professional yet personal, and resolved our case in a little over one month with positive results. Mr. Denton made us feel like a friend that truly cared about us, not just our case. We recommend Mr. Denton without hesitation. Mr. Denton, we don't quite know how to thank you. You put our minds at ease and took a huge weight off our shoulders. You made it completely painless for us. You taught us that there are caring and honest law firms out there and Minick Law is at the top of the list with you, Mr. Denton being truly outstanding in this category. Thank you again!

Attorney Denton review
I chose Minick Law to represent me in my car accident case. Attorney Denton gave me clear advice from the start (who to expect calls from, and who to talk to and not talk to). He answered my questions and handled communications with my insurance company, the other driver's insurance company, and that helped me to concentrate on healing without worrying if details were being covered. He even managed to get one of the Health Professionals to lower his bill before we paid it. Very professional, responsive service. I am very satisfied with my experience and my settlement.

Our minds are now at ease now that we have some answers and direction.
Review of Attorney Lakota Denton from Minick Law. (www.minicklaw.com) Attorney Denton was kind enough to give us a single consultation for guidance and to discuss our obligations and rights related to an automobile accident, a five vehicle accident for which vehicle #1 was charged by troopers. We both have injuries that are just beginning to heal and we were unsure about whether we needed to be represented by an attorney at all and if so would the attorney need to practice in the state in which the accident occurred. Attorney Denton advised us in a very methodical manner on just what we needed to do. Our minds are much at ease now that we have some answers and direction, some of which we would never have thought about on our own. We would certainly return to Minick Law for any legal problems we might have in the future. We went to this law firm initially because of an acquaintance with James Minick’s parents but would go there again because of the very positive experience with attorney Denton.

Unbelievable Lawyer and Person!!!!
My wife and I were involved in an accident on May 1, 2012. We were not at fault. I contacted my insurance company for assistance and information. The only assistance and information I received was that since another Insurance Company was involved that they could do "nothing" and that I have to deal with the other company. We had large Dr. bills because there was serious injuries and operation from the injury. We had med pay on our policy. I researched and found that I felt that this was available to help in situations like this. Was told that it did not apply and that if it was used that my premiums would go up if I filed a claim and the they would subrogate the payments to recollect the monies if I filed for them. I contacted my insurance company and requested a "complete" copy of my policy so I could see if that indeed did apply. I was told that they could not supply this. I pursued this further and was told that they would have to contact corporate and that they did not usually give out that information. We researched on the net and found several articles in regard to N.C. law that refuted all the above claims about Med Pay. We came across a web site with Minick Law Firm. I entered the information on the web site about what I was experiencing. I almost immediately received a phone call from the Law Firm wanting more info. I was then told that a Lawyer would call me soon. To my 'dis-belief" it was within a couple of hours that Lakota called me. He listened to my info asked questions and then told me what the N.C. law was and that we indeed did qualify for Med Pay and that they could not subrogate the claim. He was pleasant, disciplined and confident. I knew that this was a trust worthy person. I contacted my agent who said I should not file a claim because they were not responsible to pay this. I contactek Lakota and he gave me the wording to use in a letter with the claim I was going to file. I filed the claim and received a call from the insurance adjuster who told me I did not have a valid claim. I filed the claim anyway. I receive a call from my insurance company again denying that they were responsible for the pay out. I called Lakota and relayed this to him. He requested that I send him a copy of my insurance policy and that he would "personally" contact the agents. While I was scanning in the information I received a call from the Insurance Claims Agent that said that we would be paid and that they would honor the contract per N.C. law. I called Lakota to let him know and found out that he had made a call to them. Haven't received the check yet but I fully expect to. Lakota told me if I did not to call him and he would pursue this because "Yes" they owed us the payout. I have never liked having to deal through a law firm but from now on I will and it will be Minick Law and my attorney will be Lakota Denton. thank you for reading this. If you need an "excellent" "knowledgeable" lawyer please choose Minick Law. You will not be displeased!
