A sigh of relief!!

I received several citations and was blessed to get Mr. McMinn as my court appointed attorney. He had everything dismissed without me even standing in front of the judge. I did not expect that. I will not go into my charges but this man is GOOD. He knows the Law and keeps you informed every step of the way. He does not sugar coat things but will work hard for a favorable outcome. I am proof of that!!

I recommend Mr. McMinn to everyone I know.

James McMinn is an amazing attorney. I have had him represent me for felonies that are now completely dismissed from my record-to help me continue on with my life and make a turn in the better direction. He has also been there to answer questions I have had about other legal matters and is always a phone call away. I love that he answers his own phone rather than waiting up to weeks to talk to someone directly. I also hired him for a traffic ticket that he promptly had dismissed for me. I wouldn’t hire anyone else personally if the situation ever happened where I needed legal representation again. Thank you James!

More than Competent and Capable

I highly recommend James McMinn and here’s why:

  • At our initial consult he listened intently and noted any single detail that gave us an advantage. He had our entire defense mapped out from start to finish by the time we were done. He was able to extract and showcase several points that I never would have considered consequential.
  • He had very good rapport with the judges and the DAs—no one was out to get him and there was no unnecessary drama to heap on top of my already stressed situation.
  • Despite having no administrative staff he was attentive to details and made sure everything got the right place by the deadline.
  • In the beginning I had a million questions and he was nice enough to answer my questions almost immediately…nights, weekends, on holidays…it didn’t matter. He was happy to answer my questions as if it were no bother.
  • I never felt judged. This was important to me.
Exceptionally competent and fearless advocate for clients

I’ve known Mr. McMinn personally and professionally for over 3 years – so when I needed an experienced DWI lawyer, I knew James was the only man for the job. He is an exceptionally skilled, knowledgeable, and aggressive criminal defense attorney who works tirelessly and fearlessly on behalf of his clients. James offers a thorough and honest review case review (and tells it like it is) and walks his clients through the entire process in a way that even the most non-legal minded person can understand. You will not find an attorney who will fight more fiercely on your behalf than James McMinn. James made an unpleasant legal matter a little more bearable and I could not have been happier with the outcome. I recommend James McMinn without hesitation and the accused people of Forsyth and surrounding counties are lucky to have McMinn on their side.

Great, Compassionate Lawyer

Mr. McMinn is the lawyer to call! He convinced the judge to dismiss my DUI case after it was postponed 4 times by the court over a year and a half time. He was always prompt in returning my phone calls and would take as much time needed to talk with me. He is very knowledgeable about DUIs and will do a thorough job defending his clients.

The right man for the Job!

I was charged for a car wreck in which multiple charges were applied with no evidence except for myself actually being at the scene. James was very professional and precise. He always called me back and gave me positive feedback and or atleast had an optimistic outlook on things. Even when things aren’t looking so good for you it’s always good to have a positve person in your corner and giving you excellent advice. I was confident all the way through my trial because James was very knowlegeable of the laws and the different judges. He applied for a speedy and fair trial after about our 3rd appearance. In the end this small but strategically placed motion was what in the end resulted in my case being dissmissed and not having to pay thousands of my hard earned money to the city of Winston-Salems court sytems. If you need and honest affirmative to the point lawyer, in your corner this is the man you need to have counsel you! I could never thank James enough for his hard work and perserverance to shine light on the truth and be a strong professional in the midst of a complicated court system.

Great Attorney!

Attorney McMinn did an excellent job. He went above and beyond what I expected him to do. He was able to get all charges dismissed in a timely manner, and my license was reinstated within a week. I would definitely recommend using his services.

What can be worse than a phone call from the police station on Christmas night about my 16 yr. old and DWI? Mr. McMinn guided us through the court system and ended our nightmare with the best outcome possible. Please do not hesitate to contact him.
