Mr Valkenet gave me specific procedures and indicated when I might need to further consult an attorney. He definitely is not looking to charge clients for what they don't need.

Called and spoke with me at a very professional level showing ample concern with my case and gave me free consultation and advice on how to handle my situation without me needing to pay a dime. Without a doubt in my mind I would use him without hesitation. I highly recommend this attorney!!!

Tom was irreplaceable during my litigations. My matter, to me, seemed so immense and consuming. That was until I spoke to Tom Valkenet.
His knowledge and professionalism is second to none. I was thoroughly pleased with my time in conversation and in email with mr. Valkenet. He was never too busy for a quick phone call and would ALWAYS respond to emails in a timely matter. Tom seemed more like an old friend who just happened to be a lawyer than someone I had just met. With Mr. Valkanent, in my experience, you are more than just money coming into the office. He treats you with a personable experience, something no amount of money can replace. I would recommend him to anyone that needed litigation help.

I felt Mr. Valkenet was very helpful and ethical in resolving a dispute as well as in dealing with me as a client. I left the conusultation with a lot of respect for him both professionally and personally.

I spoke with Thomas and he was very professional and knowledgeable. Gave me the information I needed for now without pressuring me to hire him. He's a rare find and I highly recommend him. Thanks Thomas.

I found Mr. Valkenet on the aavo.com website and based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews, decided to called his office. I had just signed a contract for a new home and wanted an attorney to take a look at the documents during a rescission period I was feeling somewhat uneasy about. After faxing him the paperwork, we agreed on a flat fee that seemed quite reasonable and it soon became evident that I had made the right choice. Not only is Mr. Valkenet knowledgeable, trustworthy and responsive, he's easygoing, practical and has a great sense of humor. Emails were returned promply, sometimes within minutes and I found his advice invaluable. He even wrote an addendum on my behalf even though it wasn't part of the original fee agreement. In the end, I rescinded the contract with the builder but the legal fee was money well spent. Mr. Valkenet is a professional, first rate attorney and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

While he couldn't help me directly in my family estate issue, Thomas provided me a through analysis of what he found that was very helpful. I appreciated it, and maybe some day we can meet on Wyndhurst, an old family place of business for me. I will send me a heritage handbag. I have hundreds of them. Cheers.

Consistent with the other reviews, Thomas is very responsive to the needs of his clients. He is able to communicate with you in a way that puts you at ease as well as break down complicated subjects so you can understand them. He is very engaging and makes you feel like a close family member or friend.

Mr. Valkenet helped us very much with an unusual situation that had a positive outcome. He was very responsive, fair with his prices, down to earth and we felt treated with respect. Would definitely use him again if ever the need were to arise.

Most of the time, due to constraints, and just being busy with daily life in general, few people have the time to even say a lingering good morning or even read the day's paper; much less spend a minute to read something from a stranger. Let's face it-we're just so active these days, there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. So when I posted a question a few days ago, I really didn't expect to get as detailed an answer as Mr. Valkenet gave me. Right off the bat, I could tell he’s not only knowledgeable, but he’s very responsive…you know what I mean…it’s as if he’s right there actually speaking with you. Believe me, those are probably the two most important traits I look for when considering hiring an attorney to help me fight for my rights. It’s truly a personal thing.
I've had my doubts about lawyers and whether they're trustworthy or whether they even know what they’re talking about or not. But after getting such an informed opinion, I know first and foremost that I can trust Thomas Valkenet; and secondly, I know he knows what he’s doing. It takes a genuine compassion for people to be able to not only take time away from your own schedule, but to spend that time reading questions and then fully answering them as well. Who even does that for someone they don’t know? I'm pretty sure he has enough to keep him busy in the course of a day…that’s why I have such positive things to say about the way he shares information. He actually cares!
Until I posted the question I had about the difference between a Motion, a Petition and a Request, I had no idea which would be appropriate to use for my cause. But after Mr. Valkenet gave me details and helped me figure it out, I found myself in a place of better understanding. He used easily understood words so I would have a clear picture of the situation and my options in dealing with them. So let me tell you something, if you need someone to help you navigate through the murky waters of the legal system, and you have doubts, you should definitely speak with Mr. Thomas Valkenet...you will no longer be a "DOUBTING THOMAS" either. I'm sure with all his many years of experience, and his impeccable reputation, he'll be able to advise you and help you determine what course of action to take in order to get the best outcome possible.
I am thankful to him for allowing me to benefit from his wisdom and experience. That's pretty generous of him to do if you ask me. I'd highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice--I seriously doubt you could ever find better!
