  • Jeffrey Allan Flores

    I first met Ken as an adversary. He was defending personal-injury cases for one of the largest insurance companies in the US. It was obvious why they entrusted Ken with their business, he has excellent courtroom skills and Juries like him! Several years ago, Ken decided to put his experience to work for people who have been injured. His clients benefit tremendously because the insurance companies know he can try cases and win! When you have that kind of lawyer, your case tends to settle rather than go to a jury trial. If that's the kind of lawyer you want working for you, call Ken.
