What Our Clients Say ...
Mr. Johnson and everyone at DeMent Askew went above and beyond in their handling of our case. They genuinely cared for the well-being of my husband and my family. I have used them for other legal matters as well, and would definitely recommend them to anyone with any type of personal injury case, no matter how serious.”
I want to thank Mr. Dement for helping me out with my DWI case. I was truly not very optimistic in my chances with my case, but on the day of my trial Mr. Dement vigorously argued in my favor that the officer did not have probable cause for my arrest. Mr. Dement was very detailed in his cross examination of the officer and posed great doubt that he did have probable cause for my arrest. Ultimately Mr. Dement was able to get my DWI charge dropped and I was responsible for his fees and the court costs. I truly appreciate his efforts in saving me from a DWI conviction and everything unfortunate that goes along with that conviction.
Five stars! About a year and a half ago I came to Russell with what seemed to be an impossible case to win and he told me I had a low percentage of walking away with the outcome I was asking for. However today my case got settled and it ended just how I was hoping. He really had his work cut out for him with this one and proved himself to be as good as everyone had told me he was! He's definitely the guy to call when you get yourself in a bind and need some help working it out.
(Rusty) and his team (Freda:) were not only thorough, but patient, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. I had several things going against me in my case, and Rusty was still able to deliver a not guilty verdict... definitely one of the top criminal defense attorneys in the area…
Mr. DeMent and his team are fantastic! I am a very satisfied client, and I highly recommend using them if you ever find yourself in a tight spot. They took care of me, and they'll take care of you.
Just a simply outstanding experience across the board. Rusty is the best in the business. He makes it all painless and doesn't miss a beat. Thanks for the outstanding service.
Rusty was a tremendous help. He never gave up his determination to give me a favorable outcome! Wonderful legal staff, especially Freda. Would definitely recommend Rusty as a great legal source.
The Dement Askew Law Firm represented me in my divorce more than 17 years ago and their patience and guidance was priceless. Most recently I retired after thirty years as a North Carolina State Trooper and I witnessed first hand their diligence in court. From this professional relationship has developed a true friendship. I cannot say you will develop the same friendship but I can guarantee you will develop the same trust and professional relationship many have experienced.
