Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.

He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!
