I am probably a challenging prospective client to speak to. Thomas was great at reining me in and keeping me focused on the facts. He gave us excellent insight into our tangled web of a case without bad mouthing his competition and was very professional. Wish I'd spoken to him first, but he did give us clear directions on how to make the most of our legal representative we have now.
Thank you Thomas ... we so appreciate your time!
I spoke with Mr Valkenet in regards to a claim I was trying to file and his honesty and professionalism made it very easy to understand my situation better.
Very helpful with answering my questions of how to defend against a contractor's claim. He found several areas of weakness in the plaintiff's case and was extremely knowledgeable and responsive in assisting me...highly recommend.
Spoke with Mr. Valkenet over the phone regarding a potential case. I explained the details regarding our situation and he offered guidance and also discussed similar cases that he was aware of. He referred me to another attorney due to the area where I live and the extra cost it would be for travel (very kind to think of that). I can only hope that the next attorney I speak with is as kind as him.
Mr. Valkenet is very knowledgeable and response very quickly to my question. I personally sent Mr. Valkenet an email to further explain my case and informed me how I could handle it and if not please give him a call for further assistance.
I had a legal question concerning a civil summons resulting from a traffic accident. Mr. Valkenet answered my email on a Saturday only hours after my request for information. He explained that my insurance company would handle legal issues. If I feel that the insurance company is not being responsive I will definitely use his services. Thanks again for the quick response and informative information.
I consulted Mr. Valkenet in a series of issues and he seems diligent, honest, and knowledgeably. I highly recommend him in the Maryland Metropolitan area.
Met Mr. Valkenet today in reference to a dispute with a former employer threatening suit. Mr. Valkenet was very welcoming and reassuring. I left the consultation feeling relieved and worry free. Should I need his assistance in the future with this matter or any other, I am confident he would be a tremendous asset.
Mr. Valkenet was very forth coming and honest. He helped me out tremendiously on my civil suit against a big bank (Ex Bf took out autoloan with me listed as a co-signer, never signed or authorized the loan). (We won) He and his peers kept me up to date on what was going on with the communication between the bank and when I sat down to discuss the whole case he got me mentally prepaired for what could (and thankfully did not) happen. I highly recommend his law firm.
Spoke to Mr. Valkenet today about a legal issue in Maryland, and I was completely impressed.
First of all he was "all business" in his demeanor, launching immediately into a series of insightful questions to better understand my situation. I appreciated his directness, because if I were to retain him to do this work, I would assume he'd be just as efficient when I'm paying for his time.
Second, he shared his opinions freely without trying to sell me on his services.
Third, he was quite knowledgeable about the issues I was facing.
The value of the consultation was superb.
