“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.”
“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!”
“Working with the lawyers at Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana, PC was a good experience. They spent a lot of time explaining everything to me. They were very helpful.”
“Thank you. Your professionalism and determination made all the difference in my Estate and Trust Litigation matter. You exceeded my greatest expectation, and have added significantly to my families future. I am grateful for your sincere concern.”
