Thank you, Tom, your colleagues and staff for providing me with professional, compassionate and honest support system with impeccable service over the past 11 months while dealing with a painful (literally and figuratively) and trying experience following injuries suffered on the job.
You leadership, guidance, optimism and support have kept me going throughout. Mr. Atkinson has been listened to me, and he has been honest and forthright while leading me through this difficult process.
No one should have to experience what I have, but if they do, I can only hope for them that they find you and your staff to stand beside them during difficult times in their life.
You and your firm will always remain in my thoughts. When and if the situation arises, my recommendation for fair, hard-working, client oriented legal counsel will consist of a list of one - Atkinson Law.

It's pretty daunting to search for a good attorney. Three years ago I needed one.
I've worked as a professional nurse all my life. I am very much aware that securing the right health care professional means everything in receiving a successful course of treatment and care that results in the optimal outcome.
Finding the “right” attorney is just as essential.
I was incredibly fortunate to have found Tom Atkinson.
Tom Atkinson is an outstanding attorney because he is an even better person. He is a man of the utmost integrity with a passion to understand his client and provide his client with the absolute best support. This is what he did for me.
Tom Atkinson is always gracious, always a careful listener and he has a lot of patience.
I would be privileged to recommend Tom Atkinson to any of m colleagues or friends.

Don't make the mistake I did and wait to get a lawyer.
I was one surgery in and two years into my injury before talking with Tom Atkinson. Tom was very honest right from the start. He even told me to check around for lawyers but to make sure I got one. He just did not say it he meant it. I respected that in him.
My care did not start begin to move in the right direction till I hired Tom Atkinson. I learned I should have had a QRC all along. I was scheduled to see a specialist to start getting things moving in the right direction. Even when the road looked long and hard Tom has not given up on me or my family. My case is long from over, but I know I chose well when I decided to go with Tom Atkinson and his firm. They are committed to seeing the case through and fighting for your rights.
Don't wait. At least go and sit down with them today. Tom will give you honest advice you can trust.

I have had numerous cases with Tom over the past 20 years. He is always an excellent advocate for his clients. He is well prepared, well versed in the law, and always gets the maximum benefits for his clients. I would not hestitate to refer a friend or family member to him.
