Tom Ashton is a published author and tenacious Roanoke lawyer who puts his clients’ interests first. He has won several jury and many bench trials in Virginia, and has also been victorious at the appellate level in both state and federal courts.

Tom has represented many different types of clients, from large multi-billion dollar businesses to pro bono individuals. He also has extensive experience in many different areas of the law, including: family law (divorce, support, custody and protective orders), wills and estates, general civil litigation, traffic law and misdemeanor criminal defense, business formation and corporate governance, appellate practice, debt collection, plaintiff’s personal injury, federal procurement law, bankruptcy, construction litigation, civil rights and constitutional law cases, and alternative dispute resolution. 

This broad experience and track record of successful representation allows him to bring a different perspective to bear in his practice, considering the “whole client” and not reducing the client to a specific issue or set of issues. He seeks to give clients legal advice in the context of their lives, along with a range of options and realistic assessments of the costs and benefits of each.

Filing an appeal, or having one filed against you, is one of the most daunting things clients face on the civil side of our legal system. The court rules on appeal can be confusing and often include tight mandatory deadlines. Missing a deadline can be fatal to your claim or make your opponent’s case much, much easier.

The rules also include complex directions about how your argument may be presented to the court, down to details like allowable font size and paper color.

If you are facing appeals in Roanoke or the surrounding areas, you need an experienced attorney to help guide you through this maze of rules.

Be confident that the details will be handled properly.
