  • Jeffrey Ryan Hall

    I endorse this lawyer. Ken is a knowledgeable, zealous advocate that can see all sides of an issue very quickly. He is rational, communicates with respect, and is respected by judges and his fellow colleagues. I have been on opposite sides of cases with Ken and the cases were resolved reasonably, with justice being reached.

  • Thomas Robert Siegel

    I have worked on a number of matters with Ken from time to time and I am pleased to do so every time without exception. His willingness to listen and cooperate before passing judgment in order to solve problems swiftly, fairly, and without drama is one of the reasons Ken is one of my favorite attorneys.
