Car Accident Review
My attorney, Anthony Thomas, was very thorough in explaining the process of filing a claim against an uninsured driver. Whenever we spoke, he was knowledgeable about my case and where things stood at that point in time. I truly believe that he worked to get me the maximum settlement amount available in my case.

Attorney Thomas provided me with an excellent experience. I knew the moment I spoke with her that I was in good hands. She kept me organized so that the experience was seamless.

Compassionate and Empathetic
Mrs. Thomas took the time to speak with me on short noticed and she genuinely displayed a loving concern for my situation with a strong desire to help. Even though she was not available to assist me on short notice, she took the time and research to find someone who could. The care that she gave me will be appreciated my whole life. I have obtained her as my legal family counsel and recommend her at the highest regard. Thank you Mrs. Thomas!!!

Last Will & Testament
The law office of Mrs. Debra Thomas was highly recommended to my husband and I by a close friend. We were not disappointed. She was very professional, personal and patient with us. She took the time to explain everything to us. We appreciate that she even answered questions concerning how my husband needed to handle the estate of his father. She went above and beyond. We strongly recommended her services to anyone in need of a lawyer.

I did not have to worry or wonder about my case because they did an excellent job communicating with me every step of the way.

Settlement
This is my second time working with Debbie and I was pleased to work with her the first time, which prompted my return. This time around my case was way more complicated. My case was supposed to go court but thanks to Debbie we were able to avoid that and settle for an amount that I was very satisfied with. She also handled my daughter’s case as well as my best friend’s. If you’re looking for a lawyer who not only makes you feel comfortable but has your best interest in mind then this is the place to come.
