  • Jeffrey Brett Hayden

    Having worked with Mr. Kruger, I found he had both the knowledge and the passion needed to excel in the Family Law arena. He is compassionate and truly cares about the well being of his clients. At the same time, Rolf is quite knowledgeable about Family Law -- he is the current Chair of the Family Law Advisory Commission of the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization -- meaning he knows the various avenues of relief available for his clients and how to use them. I highly endorse Rolf Kruger, an exceptional lawyer.
