Divorce/Custody, Civil Litigation, Traffic, Collections, Wills, & Business Formation.
I was very stressed about having to sue a contractor who did not follow through on our contract. Hiring Tom as my lawyer was the best decision I could have made. His preparation was on point, and his knowledge of the law and of the judicial system, along with his convincing and straight to the point presentation overwhelmingly convinced the Judge to rule in our favor. Not only was I awarded the actual amount that was owed and attorney fees, but I was also awarded extra $$ because Tom argued that my case was in violation of the VCPA (Virginia Consumer Protection Act). I am ecstatic with the outcome and it was better than I could have imagined. I definitely recommend Tom to anyone who is in need of a lawyer who is trustworthy and gets results. He is inarguably one of the best lawyers in Roanoke!!
I hired Tom to work on a complicated Divorce appeal. Having worked with a number of attorneys over the years I was very impressed. His knowledge of the law was outstanding. He was always prompt in getting back to me. I could not have been more satisfied with every aspect of his handling my case.
He constantly displays an indefatigable advocacy for his client's interests. Mr. Ashton is also a fantastic mentor. He is a patient, understanding and caring individual with an outstanding ability to break down complex legal concepts in a digestible manner that anyone can understand. I strongly recommend Mr. Ashton as an attorney.
Tom shows genuine interest and care in helping with the legal binds our company has found itself in. His attention to detail and ability to remain both calm and analytical in uncomfortable situations makes him stand out from the crowd. He has become a good friend. Having worked with other attorneys in the past, Tom Ashton will remain my primary legal source for as long as he'll have me as a client.
Tom went above and beyond for us and dug us out of a really awful situation. I couldn't be more appreciative of his help.
Tom definitely exceeded my expectations with his unique and persuasive way of gathering and presenting information. He helped me do the impossible - win primary physical custody of my daughter as a father in a 3 hour relocation case! Cant' say enough about how comfortable he made me feel and how much I appreciate the extra time and transparency he provided.
