Highly recommend!!
Seth helped me with a personal injury case. He kept in contact with me throughout the entire process. He was great with returning phone calls and following up with me. He made sure to update me whenever there was new information regarding my case. He exceeded my expectations and helped me win my case. I wouldn’t hesitate to have him represent me again!!

I highly recommend!!
Seth Kreiner was a magnificent lawyer at a time when I needed him most. Seth received a satisfactory result and I am most impressed with his professionalism and honesty with me. Not only was he able to defend me from a company that wrongfully terminated me but stood by my side fighting until the end. I am eternally grateful for his service and I highly recommend Seth Kreiner without reservation.

Excellent service! Highly recommend!
I had an employment related case about a year ago. Although some lawyers thought it would be hard to prove that I was terminated because of discrimination, Seth accepted my case. He was very sharp, knowledgeable, patient and professional, and most of all, he was really kind. He was not the type of aggressive lawyer, but he definitely got things done in his own polite yet effective ways. My previous employer totally ignored my claim before Seth stepped in. He immediately found the right party to talk to and started negotiating on my case. In the end, I got a very good settlement that I deserved. It was really great service and I would highly recommend Seth. In addition, the fee was contingent and the amount was very reasonable, unlike some lawyers who charge a ridiculous amount even before they sit down to talk with you. While I was dealing with one of the worst situations in life, it was a great and pleasant experience working with Seth!

The Perfect Divorce Lawyer for me!
Seth is the second divorce lawyer I had to find for my case. The first lawyer was not very honest with me and overcharged me. I found Seth through avvo, what a turn over! My case is closing for good now. I would like to say that Seth deserves all the great comments! First of all, Seth is very honest and considerate. I am from another country and he was so patient with me, and explained everything so simply along with saving me a ton of money not pushing me to court, and resolved the overcharge bill issue with my previous lawyer. Second, Seth is very professional with great knowledge. I feel so lucky to find Seth to take over my divorce case, and I can’t imagine how much longer my case would have been dragged on with my previous lawyer who was trying to litigate everything. Instead, every step Seth takes is to push my case to a very positive direction, and to save time, energy and money. Third, Seth is very dedicated with his work. It's hard to find lawyers who can even take your phone calls, reply your emails on the weekends and holidays, but Seth is one of those. He cares about his client, he follows up with his clients with all the concerns, and he fights the best for his clients. I got very upset couple times during the divorce with some issues on the weekend, and I wrote emails to him regarding the matter. He called me right away when he saw my emails, he explained the issue and comforted me in a proper way, to make sure I will have a good weekend, not even worrying about the matter. He is so kind to make you feel like he is your good friend and family. I can't say good enough about Seth! I would love to recommend him to everyone who is going through divorce. He is absolutely the best! If you have any questions, please message me anytime!

HELPFUL AND HONEST!!
Seth is the most honest and helpful attorney I know! I found him thru avvo and although the case was out of his area, he still managed not only to give some legal direction but HELP ME LOOK FOR OTHER ATTORNEYS!!!! HE TOOK TIME OUT OF HIS BUSY SCHEDULE ON MORE THAN 1 OCCASION TO RETURN MY CALL AND EMAIL! He told me upfront about not being able to take my case instead of taking my money and not helping! Very reliable also, if he says he will call you back he will do so! In the end he checked up on me to see if everything went well! I will most definitely refer him to anyone!

Professional, knowledgeable & great customer service.
Our firm hired Kreiner & Kreiner LLC for a contract dispute matter. Seth was both courteous and very knowledgeable. He also spent several hours assisting us in order to resolve the matter quickly under our budget constraints.

They don't make them like this anymore...
Before hiring Seth, my divorce case was being handled by another attorney in Essex County that basically took my money, lied and did nothing to move what should have been a 2 month divorce case (no children, no money, no alimony) into a nearly THREE YEAR ORDEAL. After many delays and his calling in sick when we were set to go to court and avoiding my phone calls; I decided to seek counsel elsewhere. I did my research for Super Lawyers and found Seth. From the first phone conversation to the finalization of my divorce which he did in LESS THAN SIXTY DAYS he has been nothing but trustworthy, accountable, informative and respectful. He never made a promise that he didn't keep. He promised to "kick this divorce down the road and get it done" and he did just that. I can't rant nor rave enough about him. Seth is not only an amazing attorney but, I consider him a friend. He made me laugh when I felt like crying and really tried to understand my position not just collect my money! I recommend him to anyone needing an EXCELLENT attorney. I look on Avvo and see many attorneys with a 10.0 rating including my former attorney and clearly know many of them are not earned, with Seth that is NOT the case. He earns a 20.0 and then some! Hire Seth, you can't go wrong!

A capable and trustworthy attorney!
Mr. Kreiner is an extremely capable and trustworthy attorney. He helped me get out of a real estate contract a few days before closing and get all my deposit back. It was a little late when I found out the issue of the house due to the nondisclosure of the seller and my lack of experience. The seller threatened to keep my deposit and sue me for breach of contract. He wasn't my real estate attorney but showed great care and concern when I came to him. He went through all my documents and correspondences with seller and gave me great advice to resolve the problem. He is very professional, considered and knowledgeable of the law. I will recommend him unequivocally!

Professional Attorney with a personal touch
Seth Kreiner and his staff provided me with exemplary service regarding my severance augmentation/wrongful termination case. From day one my case was handled with the utmost professionalism. This was a difficult case as family was involved, but Seth knew exactly how to proceed. He kept me well informed as the case progressed, usually with daily emails or phone calls. He provided me with options as the case developed and sincere professional advice about how to proceed based upon his extensive experience in handling these types of cases. In the end, Seth achieved the desired outcome that we set out to accomplish. It is with a great deal of gratitude that I was awarded a much better severance package than initially offered from my previous employer. I would highly recommend Kreiner and Kreiner law offices to anyone for their loyalty to their clients, their professional attitude, vast knowledge and experience, and superior communication throughout the entire process.

Great Personal Injury experience
I highly recommend Seth and his firm. I had a personal injury and found Seth through Google. What a lucky person I am. Seth and Lauren Disarno handled my case with great confidence, perseverance. and swiftness. I was quite impressed with their work from start to a quick finish and was very pleased with the outcome.

Fabulous people
I consulted Seth on an attorney fee matter because I suspected my former lawyer overcharged me. Seth and his brother Peter spent HOURS with me going over the bills and explained to me what they thought was wrong and why was that. Be mindful, this session was totally FREE! Honestly, grateful as I was, I felt guilty that I was taking advantage of these good people ( BTW, as much as I appreciate their generosity, I don’t encourage other people to ask for the same treatment, the Kreiners deserve to be paid for their outstanding service). Also bear in mind that English is not my first language, Seth and Peter managed to communicate with me effectively, patiently explaining things in a sensible way; on the other hand, they are very candid, telling me what they can and can’t do, leaving no room for misunderstanding or unrealistic illusion. After the meeting, I just say,“Wow!” Why didn’t I know these folks sooner, they could have done a much more superior job than my former lawyer did! The Kreiners is impeccable in both professional knowledge and ethical standard. Go for these amusing people, if you are in need of legal services. I promise that you are in good hands, 100 percent.

I Highly Recommend Seth to assist you with your Legal Matters.
I had recently been faced with a couple of legal matters were it became evident that I needed to seek the representation of an Attorney. Seth was highly recommended to me from another Attorney. Although legal matters are often filled with stress, Seth does a great job of addressing all elements of the situation and works diligently to keep you apprised of the status of the ‘case’, which helps to minimize the stress that results from these situations. In both of my situations Seth’s advice was spot on. While in the initial stages of the matter that is being addressed Seth is straight forward regarding the anticipated cost of his services, therefore, no surprises of what to expect from a billing perspective. I recommend Seth without hesitation.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Kreiner helped me with my recent divorce, and I couldn't be any happier with his services. His friendly demeanor constantly put me at ease, in addition to his expertise and quick responses to all of my emails and questions. I have full confidence in his work and would without a doubt work with him again. I felt he always had my best interest at heart, and was a complete pleasure to work with. My divorce was finalized without any hiccups, all due to Mr. Kreiner's extensive skills. All communications were clear and efficient, which made the road leading up to the final divorce appearance that much easier. I have no hesitations at all recommending Mr. Kreiner.

Very fortunate, and satisfied client!!
Mr. Kreiner went above & beyond to meet with me, discuss my case & take action in a most expedient & efficient manner. He was very supportive & re-assuring, and was meticulous with the details of my claim. He kept me informed every step of the way--including nights & weekends; he always answered all of my questions & concerns. When a counter offer was presented, he advised not to take it, because he knew we could do better. He fought for me, and defended my position with the certainty that we would indeed obtain a better financial settlement than the counter offer. He was absolutely correct; that is exactly what happened. The settlement was almost double the original offer!! The entire matter was completed in 5 weeks. I am very grateful to Mr. Kreiner for all of his support & guidance through this matter. I will certainly contact him again, if I am in need of legal counsel, and would absolutely recommend him to any friends or family in need of a great lawyer!

Real estate transaction
Mr. Kreiner is a very professional lawyer with expert knowledge of real estate law. He is always available to answer questions no matter how trivial or technical they may be. Our real estate closing was not the smoothest due to issues with the sellers and their attorney but Mr. Kreiner dealt with all of the problems and involved us in the weeds of the problems only when absolutely neccessary.

Real estate transaction...goes the extra mile
I would highly recommend Mr. Kreiner. He turned what looked like it could have been an ugly situation with a lien on my house and got the lean removed and all fees from the other attorney waived within a matter of a few weeks. I found Mr. Kreiner to be very through and he always kept me informed and went the extra mile by often communicating with me in the evening due to my schedule. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable and presenting me my alternatives, he is both professional and very personable. I would highly recommend Mr. Kreiner and would not hesitate to use him again if I needed his services.
