  • Robert N Bass

    I met Kent many years ago when he was opposing counsel in a very difficult case. He impressed me with his skill, legal knowledge and unfailing courtesy. Since we successfully settled that matter, my admiration for him is such that I have referred numerous people to Kent in matters involving insurance coverage/bad faith, real estate and related matters. All have thanked me for the referral. Kent always seems to come up with solutions to complex problems.
