    I have been working with Don Kral since I first became licensed as an Attorney and he has guided me through litigation techniques from his extensive experience as a lawyer. Don has had numerous large successful settlements and large verdicts in medical malpractice and injury law including a $6,000,000 settlement on wrongful death for a family of a middle-aged man admitted overnight to Intensive Care Unit after appendicitis surgery and was improperly given a paralytic medication instead of an antibiotic causing paralysis, cardiac arrest, brain damage, and death.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Don is a great resource within our firm. The ability to identify the "real" issues in a case is an essential, if not a common skill for effective trial attorneys. Don has this ability. I am also struck by the relationship Don builds with his clients. It is quite clear to me that because of his advice and availability to clients, he truly earns the respect and loyalty of those he represents. Don also appreciates that there is no substitute for hard work and knowledge. Fortunately for our firm, Don brings these assets.
