What Others Say About The Firm

Ofelia P., Testimonial

Michael G., Client Testimonial

"The tragic events of a car accident left my wife paralyzed and diagnosed as a quadriplegic for the rest of her life.  In my mind, I had settled in for a long hard road that only God was going to get us through.  My wife suggested we obtain law counsel, but I refused, having engaged with lawyers in the past that left a bad taste in my mouth. After about a month, I relented and got in contact with the Ammon’s Law Firm. From day one, the Firm has been professional and courteous; from the administrative person that answers the phone, to the lawyers working the case, everyone is at the top of their game – they are the best!"
