Wrongly accused
I was wrongly accused of a serious crime and Kenneth Gribetz saved my life. If not for him and his staff, I would be languishing in prison right now.

Kenneth Gribetz
I was referred by another attorney to consult and eventually hired Mr. Gribetz. I believe his knowledge of the law is excellent and he is a very capable attorney when faced with adversaries who are not too knowledgeable of the law. I have recommended him to other people and he has resolved their problems as well. I will hire him over and over again. Best attorney in New City, New York.
