Ashley impressed me in my daughters initial consultation with her for Custody Modification. She is very knowledgeable in Family Law and is straight to the point. She analyzed the arguments of the case and developed a plan in no time. While I was in deep worries she provided professional suggestions in details and explained everything. Ashley is supportive and responsive. She actually is more than a great lawyer, she has a big heart and she cares for her clients in many ways. I've worked with at least 3 family lawyers plus legal consultations in all these years. Never seen any other lawyer like Ashley, most are not even close. While we discussed issues to bring up at court she explained explained in detail the need not too and she was right. Can't say enough to express my deep gratefulness... I hope you never need a family lawyer, but if you do, call Ashley. Thank you Ashley.

Mr. Speaks and Debbie are excellent.  They took a very stressful situation and made it better.  Debbie went way beyond what I had expected.  She is great.  Mr. Speaks and the whole law firm are excellent. I will use them again if need be.

T.P.B.

I was very pleased with the way that Speaks Law Firm handled my case.  THey worked hard to get the most money that they could.  Everyone at the firm was always polite and always answered all of my concerns.  I would definitely recommend Speaks Law Firm to anyone who needs representation.  I always knew that they were there anytime I needed them.  A big "Thank you!" goes out to all of the people who are involved with the firm.

The experience I received at Speaks Law Firm was amazing!  Dealing with any time of [Workers Compensation Claim] settlement can be stressful.  Clarke, Debbie and their teamwere wonderful.  They took a lot of stress off of me.  They made it seem so easy every time I had a question or needed advice, they were always available to me.  It made me feel like they really care for me as an individual and not just as a case.  So I will definitely spread the word about Speaks Law Firm.  You guys are wonderful.

Speaks Law Firm and Ashley have been great to deal with.  I am very thankful and happy with the money I received.

I am very pleased with Jamie and Clarke's services.  In a time that was very grim and dark, they brought much light.  I don't know what I would of every done without you two.  Thanks from the bottom of my heart.  I am forever grateful.  Thank you.

M.C.K.

This is the first time I ever had to file a suit.  I must say, Ms. Debbie Black was so very attentive to me; always cheerfully answering my questions.  Her professionalism is outstanding.  She truly showed that I really mattered.  If ever I need a law firm, I would definitely come to Clarke Speaks and the Speaks Law Firm. 

L.K.L.

I would like to comment on the outstanding job done by Speaks Law Firm.  Their ability to communicate and attention to detail was first class.  The treatment that was shown to me during my hardship was nothing short of first class.  I would like to give special thanks to Attorneyu Ashley Smith for showing such understanding and ability.  I would recommend Ashley Smith for anyone in need of legal advice.

A.D.H.

The office has been very helpful to me along the process, answering all of my questions and keeping me informed.  I am so grateful for everything they have done. There is no way I would have have been able to navigate all of this alone and in the end, despite the injuries, things turned out very well.

A.F.M.

I came to Mr. Clarke (Speaks Law Firm) in pain and distress because of a car accident that was not my fault.  The insurance company was giving me the run around.  Mr. Clarke got me into a specialist the same day, thank God.  I was treated with dignity and respect and Ms. Debbie talked me through several bad days with kindness and genuine concern.  I will never let another law firm handle any legal matter for me.  They are just down right good people.

N.S., Auto Injury Accident

This firm stands behind their clients. They treat each case as an individual. You are treated as a human being. They do not treat you as a criminal. They are very understanding of your needs. They went above and beyond my expectation. They kept us informed at all times. They are very friendly and kind. They helped my son out of a real jam, he was caught driving 90mph in a 35mph. Came out with a clean slate. Kept his license, no jail time and most importantly no criminal record. Just to everything they tell you to do because they know their stuff. Great job guys. Thanks again.

Debbie

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You fought like hell in that courtroom for me.  What a show you put on!  You suprised me with that performance.  Again, I say "Thank you, Mr. Speaks!" God bless you and your family.

H.M.

Everyone was professional and informative. My questions were answered in a timely manner and I was kept informed on the progress of my claim.  I would gladly use them in the future.

S.J.

Mr. Speaks and his staff were very professional, kind, and hardworking.  They did a good job at putting my mind at ease.  When I had questions, he and his staff always made themselves available to answer them.  Being contacted ahead of time allowed me to keep up with my court dates and maintain my busy schedule.  The decision Mr. Speaks made in handling my case eluded possible jail time.  I’m very grateful for their services and would suggest them for anyone in the same situation.

J.M.

Thank you so much for your help . . . you're awesome!!

J.S.A.

Mr. Speaks and his entire team went above and beyond to help me in settling a claim after my not at fault head-on car crash. The lady that injured me had our state's minimum coverage and I was very concerned that I could come out of this situation owing money to health care providers even though it was not my fault! Mr. Speaks was able to get me a settlement that was not only fair, it exceeded my expectations. All my medical bills were paid. I was even able to get paid for some of the pain and suffering that I went through and continue to deal with. I highly recommend Mr. Speaks and his team. You would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable and caring attorney. I pray that I am never in this situation again. But if I need legal representation, my one and only call will be to Mr. Speaks.

W.N.S.

It was a very helpful experience and I am especially grateful for the way they answered my questions and helped me navigate what would have been a much more difficult situation.  I felt that my interests were fought for and taken care of and would hightly recommend anyone who might go through this to be respresented by Speaks Law Firm.

S.H.

I was very pleased with my services with Speaks Law Firm. From the time I stepped into the office to speak with someone about my injury claim, they showed so much compassion for me and my family.  They always keep me informed about everything with my case and were able to answer any questions I had or explain things to me in a way that I was able to understand.  I am VERY SATISFIED with the settlement I received at the end.  I really appreciate all the hard work they put into my case.  Thanks a lot to Clarke Speaks and the staff at Speaks Law Firm.

Dear Mr. Speaks,

Just a note to give you my heartfelt gratitude for the marvelous defense you did for my daughter.  Knowing it was an uphill battle, you gave her the caring, dedicated, and professional service that was required to prevent her from losing her freedom.  For this, we will be eternally grateful.  She was grateful, impressed and relieved to have this chapter of her life behind her, all thanks to you.  Wishing you the best, VK.

After a decade or longer of battling my ex over child support with a different firm, Speaks Law Firm picked up the ball and immediately ushered it through the court with a better than expected outcome!  I can't thank them all enough!

Dear Mr. Speaks,
Words are inadequate to express how grateful my children and I are for the professional way you handled this case. We feel so blessed with the outcome of this situation. I would also like to personally thank you for your patience and fortitude with us. Please extend my thanks to your wonderful staff. They were always so cordial and professional.

Hi Mr. Speaks,
We were over-whelmed and very grateful for all you did for us. Amazing! You could have said little and been on your way, but you ‘stayed the course’ and really helped us! Thank you so much for showing such a gracious and generous reaction.  Thank you!

- B.B. & G. B.

Clarke,
I’m sorry for doubting you. I was very worried about [my son]Nate. He is my only son and the thought of him being gone for 20 years was unthinkable to me. I’m very grateful to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The group of people working at Speaks Law Firm is out to make a better life for you. From the front desk to the attorneys, they made me feel confidant that they were with me at every step in the journey.  I always had my questions answered and phone calls returned. I have used them several times and with every outcome I felt like the winner.

Dear Clarke:
We know it is what you do (and you do it very well) but we just wanted to express our gratitude for how you helped ******.  The whole experience has shed some light on reality for him. We are sure the final outcome would not have been as favorable if you were not there for *****. Your staff has been very kind, helpful, patient and very easy to talk to. Thank you all for helping **** and myself with we needed you the most.

 

D.R. and S.Y.

Mr. Speaks, 
We just wanted to say Thank You for taking Robbie’s case and helping us work through it.  I really appreciate you working with us in when I was in Wilmington and the contact with us since. I am sorry if we worried you with our calls but we were so concerned. It is hard to be far away with something like this. Please tell your staff “thank you” also for their patience and help. They were so nice to us. It has been a pleasure.

Thanks again,

V.H.

Dear Mr. Speaks,
I don’t know how to say thank you for all the work that you and your staff did for me during the past 2 years. You have been very kind and supportive to me. Your patience and understanding of me and my lack of knowledge of “what was happening to me” is appreciated more than you ever know. I feel any client would be fortunate to have you with your expertise working for them. If I can ever be of any assistance to you please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

M.L.L.

 

 

My experience with Clarke Speaks Attorney at Law and his associates has been professional. I experienced a personal touch in every phone call, private meeting or court appearance. In my 20 years as a resident of the city of Wilmington, having been represented by two other attorneys of law for previous matters, Clarke Speaks brought extensive knowledge of the law concerning my case as well as a one on one client to council relationship that I did not find in the other two previous lawyers. I would fully recommend Mr. Speaks and his highly trained professional team to my family, friends or any person.
