    I had the honor of beginning my legal career under the guidance of Kurt Stender. Kurt's extensive experience in criminal law was often the only means of turning a bad situation into a favorable one. Perhaps the most valuable lesson I learned was how he always put his clients first. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have Kurt represent them can expect the highest level of dedication and professionalism.
