Exactly what you'd want
Addressing legal issues is no one's idea of a good time: you're dealing with something important, and it can be stressful worrying about whether it's going to be done right, and whether you're going to be taken advantage of in the process. What you want is someone who knows his stuff cold, really takes your side, and treats you fairly and respectfully. That's Ed. He's done all our important contract work - and has helped me navigate an issue at municipal court. He's extremely efficient, explains it all in easy to understand terms, and helps you make the right decisions. It takes the stress out of the process - which is a big deal - and even more importantly, has gotten me successful outcomes (an even bigger deal!). Like finding a excellent and trustworthy doctor or a mechanic, you need to have a go-to guy as a lawyer. Ed is it. I fully recommend.

My Experience With Attorney Ed Krippendorf
A friend referred me to Attorney Krippendorf because my case was complex and required someone who was sharp and skilled in both criminal and divorce law. Before I could focus on my divorce case and custody of my children, I had to overcome a criminal case that was wrongly brought against me. Nonetheless, Attorney Krippendorf guided me through the process and had the criminal case dismissed so we could then focus our efforts on the divorce proceedings. From the beginning, he wanted to understand my needs and what I wanted in the end. His strategy was based on that and throughout the process, he informed me on what we needed to do to achieve that. He communicated with me and answered all of my questions during this time. He was extremely responsive to me and proavtive in our cases. Divorce and custody battles are not easy things to go through, especially at the same time but I am happy with my experience with Attorney Krippendorf. He got me more than what this state typically awards a father. He understood what I wanted and he fought for it. For knowledgable, experienced and honest representation, I would strongly recommend Attorney Krippendorf.
