"I was involved in a car accident which was not my fault. I was hurt and my daughter’s car was severely damaged. I was having pain from this accident and due to complications ended up in the hospital. Mr. Tom Dunaway negotiated with the insurance company and I was awarded a big settlement. I can’t imagine ever using another Attorney for anything. I would recommend Mr. Tom Dunaway and his staff to any of my friends and family. The [paralegals] working in his office made certain that all my questions were answered and my phone calls returned. Mr. Tom Dunaway worked on my case until he got the results that we wanted."
