    My experience with Atkins Law Firm was EXCEPTIONAL The ENTIRE TEAM did an OUTSTANDING job with every aspect of my worker's compensation case. I was informed every step of the way. All of my concerns and questions were answered promptly. During the case I lost a family member and I also became ill. Holly, Joe, Lynn, Elizabeth, Dewana and team I can not give enough accolades and gratitude to for doing and excellent job I felt like family from day one which means a lot to me because too often that is not the case and you are treated like a number. I NEVER felt that way as a client of Atkins Law Firm. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and I hope I will not need their services in the future, however, if I do, they will be my FIRST call. Thank you from my whole heart for everything you all have done for me and my family. The cards you sent, the calls you made, and most importantly something that's priceless the TIME that you spent to do your jobs well above my expectations. My most humble gratitude to you all

    I turned to the Atkins Law Firm when I was injured at work and workers compensation was not responding to me. Dewana took my case very seriously and worked tirelessly to help me. All of the attorneys and staff in this practice are kind and competent. My wife and I were always treated with respect and like we were family. I was kept informed and consulted through every step of the process. I was very pleased with my results. I would highly recommend the Atkins Law Firm.

    I was injured at work a few months back. After speaking with with the worker's compensation case manager, I decided it was in my best interest to find an attorney. Atkins Law Firm was recommended to me by another firm because my case is dealing with Amazon and they have a lot of experience dealing with this company.The first time I met with Dewanna I knew this was the attorney for me. Since hiring them on I have always been able to talk with someone concerning my case. And if I needed to speak with Dewanna and she was busy her paralegal would set up a call back time for me. I am currently going through a custody battle as well. And let me tell you my family law attorney is night and day to this firm. I am lucky to even get a call back and when I do it's always 34 days later. Which if anyone has been through a custody battle they can be very emotional and personally I think this is unacceptable.I just received a Christmas card from Atkins Law and Dewanna called me today just to check on me and wish me a Merry Christmas. If you are searching for a firm to represent you in this field it doesn't get any better than Atkins Law FirmI will update this review upon resolution of my case but I know I am in great hands with Dewanna and her team.

    Wonderful, wonderful group of men and women. I refer anyone dealing with a slack employer that lies and does not document issues that may arise while being employed with a particular company to get these individuals to work for you. I promise you they will get you paid with a worker's compensation claim. They do their hardest to assist you in any way humanly possible. I am not a spoke person for the Atkins Law Firm, only speaking what I experienced through my own personal experience. Dewana, Sherri, William, Jalisa and Ms. Holly Atkins are the real deal I love you guys and thanks again for all your hard work. They work for you.
