Kind Words and Reviews From Our Clients.

How did we do for you?

Melissa Heinz at Gruel Mills is an extraordinary attorney who genuinely goes above and beyond in her service. From the moment we first met, her kindness, friendliness, and sincere care for my case were evident. She is not just a lawyer, she is a trusted advocate who truly cares about her clients’ well-being.

My family has trusted this law firm for years with our car accident cases, and Melissa went above and beyond our expectations. Recently, I went through a horrible experience where I was ran over by a drunk driver. The police told me the driver had no insurance, and I honestly thought there was no chance of getting any settlement. But Melissa worked tirelessly and turned everything around. She fought hard and got me a very substantial settlement that I didn’t think was possible.

What really makes Melissa special is her compassion and dedication. She’s not just an expert in her field, but she also makes you feel like family. She kept me informed every step of the way, reassured me when I had doubts, and was always there to answer my questions. I can wholeheartedly say that she is the only lawyer I completely trust.

Melissa’s knowledge of the law and strategic approach were also truly impressive. Her expertise and relentless dedication turned the situation around. I can’t say enough good things about her. If you need an attorney who is not only highly skilled but also truly cares about you, Melissa Heinz is the one to call. She has made a huge difference in my life, and I’m beyond grateful for everything she’s done!


Hi Tom, I just want to start by saying how grateful I have been for everything you did for me. It was a pleasure to work with you. I couldn’t ask for a better person to stand by my side and have my back in the entire process. Thank you for everything, I am truly grateful. Thank you, AC

Paul and his team went above and beyond on so many levels. He was very responsive, took the time to explain things, and always had our best interests in mind. We had a very long drawn out case but Paul did not stop pushing forward. Once Paul took over our case from a previous attorney we saw IMMEDIATE and favorable results despite COVID delays. Another thing that we admire about Paul is his straightforward attitude. He did not sugar coat anything and was ALWAYS honest with us. We HIGHLY recommend Paul and his team to anyone who is looking for help. We are extremely grateful to have found Paul to take over our case.

“Thank you for your kindness to Ron when this process all began. Thank you also for walking me through the end of a very sad time. Your compassion was noted and your professionalism appreciated. Carol and Karen were very patient, informative, and caring to me. I truly appreciate all of you making this difficult situation less painful.”

I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your help, determination and hard work you have put into our case. It was surely not a simple, quick case, but your beliefs in the case kept us moving forward. Your professionalism was so appreciated by me. Thank you for considering our case and seeing it through with a strong outcome.

With Appreciation,

Tom, Shari, and Diane,

Thank you all so much for your help with this matter. Your professionalism and care have been top notch and a relief, especially given the nature of the matter. I truly cannot thank you enough.
Tara, Managing Partner/Patent Attorney

Ben, I just want to thank you so much for all of your help. I trust you and really liked the way that the Judge spoke so highly of you, I think you are a Godsend for me!! Praying for you and I know that God has my back and so do you.

Tom Worsfold and his team far exceeded my expectations regarding my personal injury case. Every question I had throughout the process was thoroughly answered, every situation was diligently explained to me beforehand, and level of professionalism and compassion was outstanding. I was very satisfied with the outcome and would highly recommend him and his team to anyone.

Tom, over the last 3.5 years, you have exhibited the utmost professionalism in handling of our cases. Specifically, meeting the challenges posed by opposing counsel in reference to Dorothy’s case. So as Dorothy and I move forward in life, I wish to offer a sincere “thank you” for your services and counsel during the recent years. In my opinion, we simply could not have asked for a better lawyer to represent us. I hope to never have to need your services again; however, know that you will be the first call, if warranted.

Tom, we would like to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! We just cannot thank you enough for all your time, effort, and unwavering support. We will always be grateful for such a successful outcome resulting in continued healing. Wishing you and your family peace and happiness in the coming year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Tom, Becky, Raelynn, and Gerrit

We are being served by Tom Behm. He is personable, a good listener, empathetic…we have confidence in him to help us resolve our case in the best possible manner.

I’ve been a Banker for 17 years. I’ve worked with many attorneys in my tenure at Northpointe Bank. William Azkoul stands head and shoulders above them all. He is highly skilled in litigation, commercial law, alternative dispute resolution, mediation and coaching. His expertise has resulted in significant wins for Northpointe Bank. Additionally, he prudently manages expenses and costs.

William Azkoul is a detail orientated attorney who watches and recommends ways to alleviate extra expenses. He is a man of integrity and compassion and extremely trustworthy, a true gentleman and kind-hearted individual.

Sometimes what separates a truly great mediator is not the amount of the settlement(especially when damages are unjustly uncapped), but rather the time and compassion that is shown to a family that had a child tragically taken from them. Tom Behm is exceptional – he spent hours with a family, hearing stories of children rolling around in the backyard, family picnics by the river and what losing a daughter and sister meant to a wonderful, loving family. We all left in tears, and with a sense of peace and closure.
