  • Bradley Paul Ryder

    I have known Kerri for over 15 years. She is a colleague and a friend. We have worked together on several extremely complicated cases over the years. Kerri is intelligent, hard working, and a truly gifted attorney. She has the unique ability to genuinely "connect" with virtually anyone she meets. Without hesitation or qualification, I would recommend Kerri to anyone looking for an attorney who will make protecting their interests and needs her top priority.
