Tom is based at our Bury St Edmunds office, although his practice is nationwide.
"Tom really is one of the most dedicated and caring people I have ever come across. He quite literally provided me with a tireless, 24/7 service to not only to achieve the maximum and deserved compensation amount from a very difficult, bullying third party, but also to oversee my mental well-being and rehabilitation moving forward. Tom acted as an extremely capable and professional solicitor, but also acted as counsel to help me get through the darkest of days. I honestly do not know where I would have been without him. He is truly a star within your firm, and deserves every success. I would highly recommend him to anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves in a similar situation to my own." - Ashtons Legal client
"This result is beyond any hopes we had and is entirely thanks to you and your unwavering support throughout. It is far more than the fantastic outcome we have you to thank you for, without your guidance and encouragement in the darkest times we would have simply given up long ago. I don’t know how to express our gratitude." - Ashtons Legal client
"There are no words to express our thanks to you. You have literally turned our lives around. What we settled on is life changing and now it has sunk in we are absolutely over the moon! Without all your hard work and kindness through all this we would have struggled for the rest of our lives. Again, I have to say we cannot thank you enough." - Ashtons Legal client
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for your highly professional approach in managing my case, for your extremely thorough and precise preparations, and for your sympathetic, strategy and tactical approach. You really went the extra mile with your personal dedication to the case by responding to my 'urgent' questions during my moments of despair, even whilst you were on your holiday!" - Ashtons Legal Client
“Thanks for an excellent and just result with regards to this case. You have spent a considerable amount of time presenting this case and dealt with it in a first class professional manner throughout. Also you examined every aspect of this claim in fine detail and left no stone unturned. I certainly would recommend you to others – absolutely brilliant.” - Ashtons Legal Client
“Thank you very much for all your time and attention and the support given when I was about to crumble, without which I would have given up long ago. I appreciate it is your job but nevertheless I felt that you went over and beyond that in supporting me.” – Ashtons Legal Client
