DEEPTI ASTHANA

Managing Partner

Deepti joined Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana, PC in 2013 and in 2019 became the Managing Partner of the firm. Her practice emphasizes the areas of Personal Injury, Estates and Trust Litigation, and Will Contests.

Raised in New Delhi, India and fluent in Hindi, Deepti brings a global view to her work in the law.  She feels comfortable in many cultures and enjoys meeting clients from a variety of backgrounds.  She has practiced law in the areas of taxation, including both corporate and income tax, and corporate and securities law. She continues to be licensed to practice law in the Province of Ontario, Canada.

Deepti brings deep compassion as well as rigorous legal skills to each case she handles.  She values being able to make a difference in the lives of her clients.

“When our clients need a lawyer, it is usually because they are experiencing something emotionally and financially devastating.  They are often being treated unfairly by a big business or insurance company and feel powerless.  I love being able to restore balance to those situations through my experience and knowledge of the law.”

Deepti’s most successful cases have included representing an expectant mother who tragically miscarried after a car accident and handling a large corporate real estate transaction that benefitted owners and stakeholders.  Whether a personal injury claim or business law transaction, Deepti brings the same high level of legal skills and exacting standards to her work.

Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana, PC is deeply rooted in the community and cares about residents.  Deepti is actively involved in local charitable activities.

“Ultimately, our business depends on client trust.  We recognize that forging relationships in the community and fostering a spirit of goodwill creates confidence and faith in our business.  Moreover, we know how fortunate we are to have this trust and it is a reminder to remain humble even as we experience success.”

Deepti embraces the law firm’s core values of holding wrongdoers accountable and exceeding client expectations with excellence.  Her goal is for Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana to become the most trusted accident and injury firm in Mobile and Baldwin County, Alabama.

Outside of work, Deepti is a mom of three, so life is very busy with their activities.  She loves watching her children play soccer, and she spends a lot of time with her husband and children.  She also loves reading and has an extensive library of leadership and management books.  Exercise and nutrition are also important to her, so she hits the gym as often as she can.

“We highly recommend attorney Deepti Asthana for all your legal needs. She is competent, honest, trustworthy, and pleasant to be around. Her excellent negotiation skills and timely attention to detail set her apart. A real winner.”

- Leighton & Christine K.
Best Business Attorney

“Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana were hired to handle the legal work associated with a desire to purchase a golf club. Drew and Deepti took a personal interest in the purchase, going far beyond just doing legal work. After 8 months of dealing with the owners–a Fortune 500 Company, Drew and Deepti won the war of attrition and the big corporation from the North threw in the towel. Not only did they become our attorneys for life but just as importantly, they became our friends!”
