Thanks Clay and Abbott & Associates
I am very ecstatic about working with Clay. Since working with Clay i have felt a sense of confidence. His attention to detail and urgency is just a few traits that has astounded me. He and his colleagues have taken me in and made me apart of the family. I feel connected with this law firm. Clay explained the entire process in less than 10 minutes and everyday since my case has gone exactly as stated. He gives and sends out new updates almost everyday in every step, great communication and organizational skills I'm proud to say that I hired Clay.

v. District
I was injured on the job. The employer worked really hard against me. It was an accidental fall. I contacted Abbott's attorneys, because I had a feeling this was going to be difficult. Mr. Clay was very patient and fought for what was right. He assured me that I had done nothing wrong and it was evident in the case. He reached out and returned any emails or calls. I won my case and "reclaimed my time"!

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Clay is an excellent attorney. I am blessed to have him as my attorney. He stays on top of everything & doesn't let anything fall through the cracks. He keeps you in the loop of everything. And he won't let the insurance companies take advantage of you. Abbot & Associate's, he's definitely an asset to your team!

Good attorney
I hired Mr. Clay's law firm to help with a workers compensation case. Although I had to call a couple of times to get updates on my case they were very knowledgeable and made it easy throughout the whole process.
