Does anybody have anything to say about the courts or lawyers in Boone nc.
Has anybody felt like the system is biased or crooked?
How about the DA's office, what side do you think they are on? And are they competent in your opinion?
Any input welcome.

Tom Speed and Scott Casey seem to be the best. PW Glidewell sucks. Judge Horne seems to be fair, unless you piss him off or disrespect him. But jst like every other district in the country, defense attorneys and prosocuters sleep in the same bed. And the Sheriffs Office will screw you over in a heartbeat, even if you're cooperative.

Tom Speed is a bottom feeder.
All know about his dady and his bank account, and his favorable position with the court system....
Are we talking to criminals here or people who needs real justice against criminals?
Judge Horne is a gentleman, patient and fair it seems.
I bet Speed and Miss piggy from the DA have it going on. Or she wishes. Incompetence is the word of the day people!!!
Sure you know who It is...1st admendment...

Tom Speed is a good attorney. He helped me out in the past. PW Glidewell is totally awesome. He won a trial for me, and he beat a meth charge for my buddies girlfriend. The judge's seem to like him, but i heard the da hates him.

Tom Speed is a good man and he does a heckuva job. The entire judicial system is so screwed up in Watauga county, and guess what...if you commit a crime and are able to get free on bond, then have fun, because your trial and the "finality" of it won't happen for a few years. Guess they're backlogged that bad, huh. JOKE!!

Tom Speed is the best. The DA's office even said that to me. But, with Tom Speed, he is known as the "Continuance King" because he continues every case for as long as humanly possible, but it pays off because he usually wins his case. However the judicial system is a JOKE in Watauga County. The more money you give them, the better off you are. If you have no money, then you may as well just plead guitly straight out. Also, you will be going to court forever...like 3-4 years forever. Oh-and Scott Casey is a good attorney, but I wouldnt use him because a friend of mine had a case & he was representing a man who hit a little girl in the face & broke her nose. And also made up a ton of lies(he is an attorney after all...but his lying ability shines through real bright). He even has had his clients bring false evidence to court, and STILL looses cases against someone who went to Tom Speed. Either way with all of the judicial system & attorney's you are going to have to pay out some SERIOUS money if you want to win your case, and even if you end up losing...may as well plan on spending a minimum of 1000 for the attorney alone.

does any one know if the thug that killed Jimmy Roberts is in the court system yet. Is he still in Boone/when will his trial be. Too bad we have to waste money to give him the luxury of a trial

I like this pw glidewell guy. He called me each night before every court date. He explained everything patiently one hundred times to me and my husband. Then he was excellent and professional at my trial. I lost the things he said I would lose and he won the things he said he could win. He clearly had the respect of the judge, and the jury clearly liked him. He also owns a restaurant in Blowing Rock, so he is real busy, and always seems to be on the move. But the man has a way with words, is a gentleman, and did a great job for me. I also want to talk about his staff. He has a lady named "linda" that works there and she is the kindest person I have ever met. My only critique is that pw seems to be always on the move and doesn't seem to have time to talk in court as much as I would have liked. I do understand that he has lots of clients, but one time he said "just sit there and let me handle this" But most of our dealings were great, and once my trial happened he was excellent. I don't know what he was talking about, but it worked with the jury. I would highly recomend him. he is also a good ethical person.

Its all a money game. If you find yourself in the situation of having no choice but to deal with these people I just hope you know enough to not get a state appointed attorney.

Charlie Bird is not the worst guy there is. At one time he was my attorney when he worked for Phil Ginns office. I know a few of these people on a personal basis and am sure of what I say. Others would like nothing more then to take everything you have if it will further there career in any small way.. A lot of the people in the court house today( I use the word people loosely ) will sleep with or kiss butt to whoever need be to get what they want. Its the same everywhere and always has been. The best thing to do is avoid that place and those people like the plague..

I can't speak for that particular situation, but Johnson county courts seem to at least have some order about them and actually get stuff done in a timely manner (from what I've seen.) They don't wait a couple hours after official "time" to call the calendar and the judges isn't always late. Watauga Co. is just hurry up and wait...and to be continued again, and again....if the judges and court officials wouldn't waste so much time, justice might actually occur.

Well, if they are 15, they're aware of what they're doing. Maybe not legally, but they know.

Well the best thing to do is stay out of trouble and you want need to mess with any of these people. The Attorney's Suck what a crooked bunch. Scott Casey charged my friend 2,500 dollars for a conviction. Then offered to get him a deal across the street at Mullins & Mullins. What a racket.
