The Palace at Somerset Park works with Tony on numerous projects requiring counsel.
The legal field is intimidating and concerning.
Tony's demeanor and calm presence is incredibly reassuring when working with him.
Without pause I have zero hesitation to both acknowledge his expertise in the craft and strongly endorse Tony.

Mr. Koester is always accurate in his work and recommendations.
He is easy to rely on for three reasons: prompt, knowledgeable, and accessible.
Meetings are comfortable in an office that is well planned & organized.
Technology is utilized resulting in timely responses and unlimited dialogue.
