    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.

    I first came into contact with Alden Dychtenberg and his highly competent staff after a car accident. Up t that point, almost two years later, I had felt that my problem were being shelved, undervalued, possibly because of my age.

    Then my life began to change. Working with these capable, enthusiastic people I received truthfulness, honesty, candor and a unfailing understanding that someone "had my back".

    Jamie Elsasser, a feisty , positive young lawyer, along with Alden, went to bat with rapid results. Much effort was expended on my behalf in a mission that took months to complete, ending with satisfaction, relief and much gratitude.

    Should I ever again need such help I would not hesitate to call on the Dychtenberg team in perfect trust.

    My name is Carol R. On February 9th, 2005 I was in very a severe car accident. I was in the hospital almost four months. I ended up with severe brain damage and a lot of broken bones. Once home, we hired Shekter/Dychtenberg to represent me in our law suit. In June of 2012 they had made an offer which Alden didn’t feel was enough. I was willing to accept it, but thank god Alden talked me out of it. In December of 2012 they made and offer for the full amount. I am just so very thankful that I listen to Alden and received everything that was coming to me.

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for everything Richard. I want you to see how you've helped my boys S.P. and B.P. purchase a home together. B.P. has accepted a spot in a Master’s program at Queen’s University so they’ve bought a house close to the university in Kingston.

    This has worked well because my other son S.P. is doing renos nearby and he'll spread that work to Kingston as well.

    Mom is happy because her boys continue to work together and will be living only about an hour and a half away. They'll be able to rent out a couple of rooms and make a few improvements down the road and they'll have a nice nest egg. I just wanted you to see the outcome of the good work you do!

    Thanks for everything Richard,

    A. P.

    When my husband was involved in an serious car accident, and I didn’t know if he was going to survive, Shekter Dychtenberg patiently went through all the steps that we needed to know and pointed out areas that we hadn’t even thought about and promptly took over all dealings with the insurer so that we could just focus on my husband’s injuries.

    They cared. That is where the business relationship changed into a friendship, because they cared and most don’t. They personally got involved. They cared what happened on day one until the day the case settled, and they will care what happens to us from now on.
