I would highly recommend Tom Ashenden as a personal injury attorney. Tom and his associates were very personable and trustworthy. They were there whenever I had a question and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Tom made me feel comfortable and at ease, treating me with respect and offering me guideance whenever I needed his help. I could tell Tom really cared about me and my overall well being.
Over the past 15 years, I have utilized the services offered by Thomas J Ashenden, Esq. many times. Additionally, I have referred countless individuals to him, who have been more than pleased. He made history with both my Worker's Comp case and my tort case, per the state judge who oversaw the mediations. On one of my referrals, it involved an incident in Tennessee, yet Tom found him adequate representation and assisted the client so that they would not have to make that long drive. He was highly recommended, and his patience and thoroughness have earned my respect. There is none like him, and I call him my friend as he has always had my best interest at heart. Each case is more than money to him, he truly represents the clients. His staff are impeccable.
My experience with Tom was very enjoyable. He and his associate attorney, Julia Latimer, and staff treated me with respect and honesty about all the facts I needed to know about my case. Tom and Julia worked very hard to get a settlement amount that I was happy with. Tom and I had conversations about events other than just my case. He was never rushed and I never felt like I was on a time clock.
Tom found out that I loved golf and after my settlement, he arranged a lesson with his golf instructor. It was so touching. I feel like I have made a friend for life.
I would highly recommend Tom Ashenden as a personal injury attorney, having just gone through the litigation process with him. The insurance companies' initial offers were low, so Tom asked me to come to his office so he could explain what to expect if we were to file a lawsuit. He gave me the option to either accept what was offered or to allow him to file a lawsuit. I decided to allow him to file it. Following several depositions and court filings, my case ultimately settled for more than three times the amount that was offered before Tom prepared my case for trial. Tom is an excellent attorney who protected my rights. He stood up for me against four other attorneys who all represented different parties in my case. He is truly a trial lawyer at heart who fought to the finish for me. I feel as though I gained a friend who helped me when I needed it, rather than a business acquaintance.
