After being severely injured by a car, I had to choose a lawyer to represent me. Personal, expert help was important to me and so I decided against a big firm. Based on strong recommendations, I chose Alden Dychtenberg.

Alden provided outstanding ongoing customer service throughout the process and would respond to emails and calls within a few hours on a 24/7 basis. Whenever a decision had to be made, I was provided with the pros and cons of each option so that I could make educated decisions and be actively involved in my case.

I received great moral support, advice and help from the whole team who all knew my case inside out. Even after resolving the case through mediation, Alden and his staff have stayed in touch and continue to help me to this day.

Alden's actions are guided by his belief that "the only good outcome is a happy customer".  Having worked with him and his team for over four years, I can say that I am extremely happy with having chosen Alden Dychtenberg.
