Best Lawyer
I would highly recommend Ken Schreiber as an attorney . I am an elderly man that was given a process summons at 9:30 at night to appear in court in Wisconsin 2 days later at 9:30am. I reside in Florida. After trying to contact lawyer in Wisconsin with no results, Kenny was able to get in touch with the lawyer effectively resolving my issue in a very timely manner. I will always recommend and refer family and friends to Ken Schreiber.

Excellent attorney, Great man!
Ken is a PEOPLE'S attorney. After consulting woth several others we chose to hire him. Our case was very delicate and needed an unconventional and creative approach. Schreiber Law handled all aspects in a way I can't really describe. It's been 7 years and we still could not be more grateful. Nobody else would have been able to help us ,period. Ken is by far one of the most genuine and stand up types to walk this Earth!

Wonderful Law Firm
Ken Schreiber is one of the leading attorneys in the state of Rhode Island. His specific areas of expertise are criminal defense accompanied by personnel injury law, family court and divorce. He is one of the finest Attorneys I have ever had the pleaser to know and work with. Ken is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. It has been my experience that Ken’s tenacious nature and detailed knowledge of the relevant areas of law produce extremely favorable results. He takes a personnel interest with every case and client he represents. Ken addressed and resolved my issue in a fast and timely manner to my complete satisfaction.

Represented me in my divorce
I hired Ken after I realized my first attorney was in over their head. Ken was meticulous in representing me. Like others have stated, he works all hours and actually cares about his clients and their health and welfare. He is an honest and decent person who cares deeply for his family and his clients. Ken will be my lawyer for life

Workers Comp
My husband needed help. He was badly hurt at work and we knew we needed an attorney. We sat down with Ken and immediately knew he was the right guy. He is personable, funny and very knowledgeable. This case went to court alot over the course of 10 years. I am happy to say that we always came out winners, thanks to Ken. He has become more than just an attorney to us, he is considered a dear friend. We can not thank him enough for everything he has done.

Family Court Attorney - Highly Recommend!
Attorney Schreiber handled two Family Court Legal matters for me over the past 5 years. I must say, I always felt like his number one client. I don’t know too many Attorneys that will contact their clients at night, on weekends, or even when they are away on vacation; Attorney Schreiber did all three. There were numerous times where he contacted me well after dinner time, to answer a question for me or make me feel better about a situation that we were in the process of getting settled in court. Attorney Schreiber is compassionate and empathetic, his integrity showed in his actions while representing me. As a result, I continue to refer people to him, who tell me they feel the same way. I highly recommend Attorney Schreiber, and will continue to refer people to him.

Best Attorney in Rhode Island!
Ken listened to my legal matter and immediately took action. He returns calls and emails no matter the time of day. If you have any legal issue you should not hesitate to call Ken.

Excellent
Mr Schreiber took on our case after other attorneys could not help. We were interested in protecting our granddaughter, who was already in our care. The state of Rhode Island is not one who makes it easy as they would rather see a child caught up in the "system" than in a healthy environment. Mr Schreiber fought hard for our granddaughter. He took chances and guided us through the unnecessary, complicated, and frustrating process. RI is not a "best interest of the child" state. It is a "best interest of the parent, regardless of the predictable outcome for the child" state. Without the dedication Mr Schreiber brought, we positively would not be caring for this child.

Happy Client
I have had the pleasure of having Mr. Schreiber on my side multiple times for a divorce situation. He is very professional, extremely wise and won a case for me that I knew going in was going to be difficult. He was always honest and straight forward. I had full confidence in him which allowed me to sit back, and let him do what he does best,,,,WIN!! I highly recommend Mr. Schreiber to anyone.

A Friend
Not to long ago, I had to deal with a situation, there were two numbers pulled from a phone book. My first call did not sit well with me. My second one was Mr. Schreiber. He invited me into his office, it was immediate that I knew he would take care of me, I felt at peace. There was no airs about him, but a straight-forward truth to everything he said and did. I enjoyed our conversations and sharing of life stories, like two brothers. When I saw a flag that had the word "hope" on it in the courtroom, I knew I was watching an artist who filled that room with hope. When Mr. Schreiber would say "How are you my friend" "Take care my friend", I knew he meant it. When I would thank him for all that was done for me, his response would humbly be" It's my job". My thought was that it is his calling and he answered that call everyday. To this very day when I call the office, he would respond immediately as a friend, not a lawyer. I was meant to meet this gentleman, and there are no words that would express my gratitude for this gift. For all that he does for me, but most of all, being my true friend. If someone needs sincerity, hope, truth, he is the man to call. You will get more than you can ever imagine. ~Mario R. A Friend.

Attorney Kenneth Schreiber - He Delivers !!!
I am writing this review without coercion nor was I approached to write the review. I was researching the internet and spotted an article that led me to this website. Attorney Schreiber is a compassionate person, a family man and cares about people. Our son made two poor choices in his young life and after being out consuming alcohol got behind the wheel of his car intoxicated above the legal limit and was stopped and charged. Fortunately on both occasions it was normal traffic stops without accidents or involvement of others. The two cases were separated by two years in between. Our son was in the middle of a Doctor of Pharmacy program. As one could imagine my wife and I were devastated. Our son was mandated to inform his school of the events and he was put on notice of possible expulsion due to the ethics involved with being a Pharmacist. The second case occurred in January 2015. Two years had lapsed from the 2013 case. Attorney Schreiber was able to petition the courts and seal the first case. This left our son with one open case. During this entire time, Attorney Schreiber put himself in our shoes as a dad of a son about the same age. He fought on behalf of our son we felt as if he were his own. The stigma of lawyers are they are just ambulance chasers. My wife and I found Attorney Schreiber through the local yellow pages. My son and our family couldn't have been more fortunate to have found such a hard working Attorney who knows people and the legal system as well as giving sound advice to consider different options. It is with gratitude and the fortunate circumstances of having Attorney Schreiber represent our son that he just graduated his six year program from college as a Doctor of Pharmacy. Our son realizes he was so fortunate to have had representation from Attorney Schreiber to have learned the life's experiences he did and graduate. I wholeheartedly would recommend Attorney Schreiber to anyone in the State of Rhode Island. It is not often that one would come away after spending thousands of dollars on an event that was unplanned and could have been avoided but walk away thinking it was money well spent. In this case, my wife and I would do it all over again with Attorney Schreiber because of the positive attitude he exudes and the total experience he provided in representing our son. Anyone reading this review, please don't hesitate if you need representation and call Ken, you will not regret you did. You will possibly see other reviews but we are just normal working people who were terrified of our sons actions and in our case what I wrote about Attorney Schreiber is from the heart.

My Lawyer
All lawyers have good and poor reviews. I have dealt with several lawyers in my past experiences and I think some of those lawyers write some of their own reviews. I will not choose a lawyer based on reviews alone. I won't hire an attorney until I have met with him or her. I got Ken's name from a friend of mine, who is a past client of Ken Schreiber. So I went and met with Ken and I hired him. Our case is now resolved and I am not disappointed. I have gone back to Ken's office on a couple of smaller matters. I will continue to use Ken Schreiber in the future. Thank you Ken!

Couldn't be happier!
I was in some trouble one day and a family member recommended Ken, he made me feel at ease and resolved the problem, which is exactly what I needed. I feel like nowadays people love to post a negative review but don't give credit where it's due. I've had a few cases now with Ken over the past few years and currently working through one and I wouldn't want anyone else to handle the cases besides Ken. He always returns my calls, if I mention it's urgent, he even calls me on his court days, always wants to make sure I understand the process and the outcome. Over the years we have developed a relationship and have become personable which I feel is important, he makes me feel like I'm on top of his priority list. I believe that he is very well known throughout the court system, which is an added bonus to the work he presents.

Very happy being recommended to this lawyer
I never felt more at ease then i did with this attorney and law firm, i previously hired a lawyer prior to him that i found out lied to me, never return my calls, wanted 40 percent of my winnings . My schreiber firm has done more work for my case in the 7 months i retained him then last lawyer did in 2 years. I was always infirmed if anything, great cimmunication. This lawyer isnt someone you can bs, he knows his stuff, he is diffently a lawyer you want to hire that will take control and mean business. I Found him To be friendly, but he is a attorney, he isnt going to sit diwn and chat about something irrelivant to a case, he means business. I was recommended by him , i am very happy how things are progressing,

great lawyer
I used Mr. Schrieber for a suit that I had against my former company and it was for a significant amount. I spent a great deal of time with Ken, and yes, it wasn't cheap, but when the chips were down, I ended up winning the suit and also a big settlement. He is great in court, and understood the issues. Confused about the other reviews because I think he is great.
