Rafe did a fantastic job of understanding my situation and defending me. He was open minded and always eager to listen and work on my case. He came and visited me day , nights , weekends and worked dilligently on my case. He always kept my best interest at heart and never wavered from this.

Every case is different, but i couldn't have asked for better results from Mr. Banks. He took a 2nd DUI to court and got a Not Guilty. He saved my CDL's, me jailtime, and saved me a lot if headache. He got several motions passed that were key in my case. Not to mention, he had some excellent arguments in the courtroom. He will steer you in the right direction, as how to handle your case, and do his best to resolve the matter in your best interest. He was able to lift some weight off my shoulders and i would definetly recommend him.

I strongly endorse Rafe Banks. I've had the privilege of working with him on several matters and observed firsthand the amount of hard work and effort he puts into each case. He genuinely cares for his clients and knows the law. He is a fierce litigator who is not afraid to crank up a jury trial when it is appropriate. He is a mentor and a friend.

Rafe Banks is quitely simply the dean of the defense bar in Forsyth County. Years ago, when I was a young ADA prosecuting cases in Forsyth County, I quickly grew to respect his acumen, skill and broad knowledge of the law. As the years have advanced my respect for him has only grown. He possesses all of the traits that make a great lawyer and has them in abundance. His character, talent, collegiality and common sense are appreciated by all who work with him. You would do well to seek his counsel if you need a lawyer in the Forsyth County area.
