Knowledgeable and Responsive and Determined
Aspen was willing to explain the process whenever I had questions. I did not want to be in the position of needing a personal injury lawyer, but he got a good result.

Does his best for you
Aspen met with me and helped during a complicated car accident case with multiple people and insurances involved. He's very competent and considerate. He took the time to fully understand the situation.

Persistent and stays with you.
Aspen stayed with us for almost 8 years after a car accident where a teen aged girl rear ended my wife. After many years of back and forth with the insurance agencies we finally met to mediate with the insurance companies. He worked directly with the car insurance companies and the medical insurance companies to come up with a creative solution to make sure we maximized our settlement. I don't think most lawyers would have stuck by their clients that long.

Assertive and Effective
I hired Aspen as my attorney after a parking lot collision that injured my back and did over $1000 in damage to my car. Geico was unwilling to give me just payment even with a police report showing their insured admitting fault for backing out very quickly without paying attention. The insurance adjuster called it the worst damage to a car's quarter panel she had seen from a parking lot case. However, Geico still would not pay for medical treatment for my back until Aspen contacted them. After Aspen intervened, I was able to get treatment and received compensation for my pain in addition to having my car fully repaired. Aspen was very assertive with the insurance adjuster while still being professional and courteous. If I hadn't hired an attorney, I probably would have been able to get my repairs covered, but I might be on the hook for the medical bills for my back injury. I would hire Aspen again to prevent insurance company hassle and make sure I'm fairly compensated.

Helpful and Professional
Aspen represented me following an auto accident while I was in college. My busy schedule and injury following the accident left me feeling anxious, nervous and worried about what would come next. Aspen did an excellent job of alleviating my worries through his prompt communication, planning, and follow-through. Throughout the process itself, he was helpful, professional, and efficient. I highly recommend his work and services.

Very Helpful /positive experience
I had a very positive experience with Aspen Dunaway today. I was matched up with Aspen through the lawyer referral service of central Texas. I was in an auto accident that the statute of limitations was set to expire. I found out I (the victim) was being sued. Aspen was willing to consult with me on short notice. He was very helpful and willing to take control of the situation. Even though he did not have to do anything to help me since this was a free consultation. He advised against a law suit at this time, and faxed all the papers necessary to my insurance co. to make sure I would have proper representation through them. I found Aspen to be straight forward and ethical. He did not try to pressure me into hiring him or initiating a law suit. From my brief encounter I would recommend Aspen as a personal injury attorney

He did a great job staying in touch and making the situation go smoothly. Aspen made sure that even though the insurance companies involved were cheap, that I at least got my minimum needed to take care of my needs. I am very appreciative of that.

Aspen knows what he is doing!
I was in a car accident last year when I was 7months pregnant, a woman ran a red light and totaled my car. It was terrible, I was already a high-risk pregnancy, we had to spend hours in the hospital monitoring the baby. It was an absolute nightmare, luckily my little one is okay and is a healthy 10month old today. I did obtain some physical injuries plus acute stress disorder from this accident, I was scared and in pain. When the insurance company tried to swindle in and get me to sign over everything THE DAY AFTER THE ACCIDENT, something felt wrong and I knew I needed an attorney; I was referred to Aspen Dunaway, board certified PI attorney. Right away I felt his confidence and as the months went on he continued to earn my trust. He and his staff handled the proceedings with professionalism and educated me with my many questions; I had never been through a law suit and the entire situation was emotionally draining. Aspen was compassionate and helped guide me through the intimidating process of the deposition, mediation, etc...I am happy with how it all settled. I would absolutely hire Aspen again if needed. You can see that Aspen has integrity and puts his clients first, I am lucky to have had him represent me.

I was a client when he represented me in a suit he filed against American Airlines when they lost our luggage. His representation of me in this matter was unprofessional and I felt pressured by his tactics.
