Exceptional Experience
The following paragraphs describe a personal experience with the Law Offices of Charles Kurmay located in Milford, CT. Let’s start with the office staff, all of whom showed my retired parents kindness, patience and provided guidance in terms of next steps and completing forms. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful when requesting information, communicating in layman’s terms so that a legal novice could comprehend the requirements or requests. This skill was extremely beneficial in navigating unfamiliar territory and ultimately contributed to the resolution of our case. Thank you to the office staff. Next, our experience with Attorney Charles Kurmay was positive and amazing! Chuck is a dynamic personality, creative thinker, and exemplary problem solver. He is a protector by nature and genuinely concerned with the well-being of his clients including a keen sense of applying justice to unjust situations. My retired parents were impressed with his fortitude and generosity while working their case as he laid out plans and strategies. Our entire family experienced his relentless energy and willingness to navigate a challenging case, ultimately delivering an impressive conclusion. We greatly benefitted from his legal skills and expansive knowledge as well as his enthusiastic personality. From our perspective, it was evident that some people are natural heroes of which Chuck is among them exhibiting righteous indignation driving towards a positive outcome.

Knowledgable, Empathetic to my situation, and Trustworthy
Charles has handled two cases for me. He is always available by phone, this is huge when you hire an attorney. He is diligent, aggressive, and knowledgeable. Very trustworthy and I would use him again should the need arise.

My Situation
I got into a little trouble late last year, and hired an attorney. This attorney informed me that there was no way I could avoid jail time. I contacted Charles Kurmay and explained the situation. He informed me that "something is awry" and cited specific statutes. He suggested I get a different attorney, which I did. After the case was adjudicated, there was no jail time and the result was quite satisfactory. Had I not contacted Charles, things may have been quite different. I highly recommend him.

Good job Charles !
