Highly recommended & excellent legal advise
Ken helped us with a rather challenging traffic ticket situation. His advise, recommendations and proactive approach helped resolve the situation entirely to our satisfaction. Would approach him again, and highly recommend him

Very Thorough, Explains Everything.
Mr. Vercammen prepared wills for my husband and I during the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. He followed up with us regularly via email, answered all of our questions and was very thorough and detail oriented. I highly recommend Mr. Vercammen for any legal matter because he follows up promptly, keeps his clients "in the loop" as to the status of their legal issue and puts a great deal of thought and effort in the representation of his clients.

Great experience!
After getting my first ticket for a traffic violation, I immediately reached out to Mr. Vercammen. My boss recommended him and I was not disappointed. His initial consultation made me feel comfortable and I was glad I hired him as my attorney! He took my 4 point ticket and got it down to 0 points and I only had to pay court fees. If I ever need Mr. Vercammen again in the future, I will definitely reach out to him!

Excellent
When I made my first call I was very pleased with the service. I was treated courteously through the phone and right away they started processing my case for my speeding ticket. The case lasted a month, but within that time I was treated well. I appreciated Ken Vercammen's candid professional manners very much. I felt that I could trust him in my case. I also admire his his ethics and integrity that he showed through out the process. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family. His services was reasonably priced and I was happy with the outcome.

Great Attorney
Mr. Vercammen was very organized, and capable. I had three tickets and would have gotten points. It was reduced to one ticket without any points. My attorney was very organized, and kept me updated all the time.

Extremely Pleased Client
I was referred to Mr. Vercammen by a CPA. I had no expectations as what to expect. Mr. Vercammen was direct and straightforward with my options and when he took my case he kept me informed . He successfully advocated on my behalf. I avoided jail time and my DWI case was dismissed. In court he demonstrated knowledge of the system and how hiring the right attorney can make all the difference in the world. I am extremely grateful for the work Mr. Vercammen had done for me. I would use him again and have already recommended him to others.
