"After my mother died in a tragic fire, I was left devastated, distraught, and extremely frustrated with many unanswered questions. If my mother's death could have been prevented, I wanted accountability and justice. Friends and family encouraged me to seek out the help of an attorney, so I reached out to trusted close friends with professional peers in the community. It was highly recommended I speak with Tom Comerford and John Kenneth Moser in Winston Salem, NC. I was looking for attorneys who were tops in their field, and who I could count on to leave no stone unturned. I also wanted attorneys with major trial experience and strong knowledge of the law because I was fully prepared to go the distance in order to obtain justice for my mother. I did some research online and was extremely impressed with their experience and accomplishments. I decided to give them a call, and spoke to Jenny Surmons, who I would speak to many more times and come to adore. She listened compassionately and patiently to me as I told her, between heavy sobs, about my mother and the tragic way she died. Shortly thereafter, my brother and I met with Tom, J.K., and Jenny, at their firm in Winston Salem. I remember feeling immediately at ease and comfortable, as if I somehow already knew them. They explained the entire process in detail and in easy to understand terms. I was very happy to hire Tom and J.K., and so relieved to have them in my corner. When I was heavy with grief and finding it difficult sometimes to simply navigate through a day, I had the comfort of knowing I had the very best law team on my side. The entire staff was exceptional. Our case was multi-faceted, intricate, and very challenging, so having the best lawyers was top priority. I know I had the best, and I highly recommend Tom Comerford, J. K. Moser and the entire firm of Comerford, Chilson & Moser."
"Working with the firm was the only bright spot during a rather dark time for my family. The lawyers at Comerford, Chilson, & Moser walked us through every aspect of the case after my parents' accident involving a semi-truck. They provided us with constant updates and copies of all the legal proceedings. When it was finally complete, they explained what we should expect going forward and continue to check on how we are doing -- after more than 10 years. I can't thank them enough for all they did and would highly recommend the firm to anyone facing similar circumstances."

"The lives of many people forever changed in the Spring of 2016 when unfortunate circumstances lead to the death of a 45 year old mother, wife, sister, daughter, niece and friend. At the peak of health, no one ever imagined life would be cut short in her prime.
I feel so fortunate to have been represented by the attorneys and staff at Comerford Chilson & Moser.
My first contact with the firm was through Jenny Surmons back in 2016. Through every painful step of recounting the situation to the numerous times we had to request more information, the knowledge, compassion and caring Jenny displayed is much appreciated and I literally cannot say enough good things. In each call, email or face to face meeting Jenny exhibited all the characteristics a family reeling from the loss of a loved one needs during these kinds of circumstances.
My next contact within the firm was with John Kenneth Moser, who carefully explained the steps needed to find expert witnesses along with detailing what exactly needed to happen to prepare to file a case of this nature. Patience is not one of my best attributes but, just like Jenny, John Kenneth is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. All of these characteristics are much needed and appreciated when dealing with clients experiencing significant loss
Tom Comerford and Aindrea Pledger handled the mediation. I was thoroughly impressed with the depth of preparedness of this group of attorneys. Tom rebuffed all attempts to divert attention from the facts with poise, tenacity and professionalism. He made sure that the group knew who my wife was and that they understood the loss we had suffered with her untimely death.
The attorneys and staff at Comerford Chilson & Moser are one top notch organization. While it is unfortunate we met under these circumstances, I am forever grateful to their team and I plan to keep in touch with everyone at this amazing firm.
Families dealing with the loss of a loved one want and need a firm in your corner that can get the job done - Comerford Chilson and Moser is that firm."
