Client perspective
Initially I didn't think I really needed a lawyer but called them about some questions. A few days later I realized I needed an attorney and called Ashley back. Knowing my situation, he offered to come to see me although I was able to make it to his office. Ashley didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear but he always told me the truth. He is very knowledgeable and professional. For two years he always returned my calls promptly and got my problems resolved, ( he even sent a representative to the hospital) to make sure I was getting what I needed. I would highly recommend Ashley if you feel the need to hire an attorney. He is honest and truly cares about his clients.
