Highly recommend for intellect and integrity
Tom Asbury is an excellent attorney. I hired him to do estate planning, and was extremely pleased with the result. He took my particular set of circumstances, and created the perfect plan for me. My family is as pleased as I am. Additionally, Mr. Asbury, has a vast spectrum of knowledge in Corporate Law, which I have hired him for on other occasions. He is a very gifted attorney and a pleasure to work with.
