Review Ashton Thomas

About Me

When I'm not practicing law, I run, swim, hike, and garden. I also have written a science fiction novel. I'm conducting research so that I can complete volume 2 and 3 of the trilogy.


 


Recently, I had the good fortune to meet students from NJIT who helped me produce a film titled, "Trouble in Paradise." It's a documentary about a Class Action that I filed in the Federal District Court of New Jersey against Draeger Safety Diagnostic, the manufacturer of the breath tester used to prosecute suspected drunk drivers in New Jersey. The film may be viewed at www.frankieleaks.com


 


In short, I have fun.
