CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

You deserve justice, but the prospect of going up against large
corporations and big insurance companies is intimidating.

John, I want to thank you for all of the work you did on my case. I appreciate the way you took the time to explain the process to me and respond to all of my questions. You have an intimate knowledge of local, state, and federal practices and procedures, and you are a bright and resourceful person who made yourself available whenever needed. You fought tooth and nail against a combative defense attorney with decades of experience, and in the end achieved a great result for me. I plan on recommending your firm to everyone!
Thank you again,

Larry Christy

The road of life can have many unexpected bumps and turns along the way, and you do not want to bounce the wrong way when it comes to legal matters. I have come to trust and admire John Trimble, Jr., for almost 15 years now. When it comes to legal advice and expertise, John is one of the best! I have had some difficult struggles with personal injury, a house fire, and a contract dispute, to name a few. John Trimble represented me with a confidence and style that reflect compassion and understanding. This is priceless when you are in pain, hurting, confused, and not sure what to do next. I was always glad he was my attorney and not opposing counsel! John will advise you every step of the way.

My cases usually settled before trial, except for one. When John Trimble is in the courtroom, he has a passion and flair for fighting for you. He will go all-out to win, and in a big way. Believe me, Trimble & Register is the right call to make when life gets bumpy. He and his staff have helped me and my family smooth out some rocky roads that seemed impossible to navigate alone.
