2016 Divorce
Ex-wife filed for divorce in the middle of 2015. Went out looking for a lawyer and was ultimately referred to Mr. Krause. I met with him. I asked numerous questions during this meeting and had a lot of concerns about kids, property, financials, retirement, and so on. Mr. Krause had answers to all of my questions and provided information on how the divorce was going to proceed and what outcomes to expect. Ultimately I retained him as my lawyer. It is now approximately 9 months later and I can tell you that everything Mr. Krause stated in our first meeting came true. The process was exactly like Mr. Krause told me on that first meeting. The challenges that were faced along the way were exactly as we had discussed so long ago. The time it takes for a divorce to occur is long and there are many items which need to be addressed. This takes time and because of this there were periods that Mr. Krause and I didn't speak. This was not due to Mr. Krause, it was due to the process. This was my first divorce so I have no other lawyers to compare Mr. Krause to. I can say that he is extremely knowledgeable, fair, and "tells it like it is". If this is what you are looking for, then I would recommend Mr. Krause.

Very poor
Was very poor during time of hire. Only time anything was done is when I called and complained. Asked for bill after nearly six months and there was not one prepared. When asked for bill a comment made "I can't drop everything and do that." When returning back inside I in turn dismissed him. A bill was finally ready in less than an hour. This was after walking in and commenting that I have been waiting for something to get done. As leaving he finally asked for the file to work in it. Extremely unprofessional and bad attitude after hire. During consult is respectful. would nit suggest to hire.

bad experience
After hiring Mark for another legal matter years ago(which then he was great) I quickly retained him when my wife filed for divorce. He is very slow to return calls(have waited months to get in contact with him or his secretary. Gave me poor advice on more than on occasion, and my concerns with the lack of progress regarding the divorce or child custody have been downright ignored. My UNCONTESTED divorce has been in "limbo" for over a year now. I dismissed him as my attorney and hired another with an excellent reputation. Maybe he is great in other aspects of the law, but would not recommend him for divorce or family matters.

Took an average of 6 days to return my calls or emails. Forgot to write up the order after court to be handed in to the judge and blamed it on my ex's attorney. By the time he did finally write it up, 3 weeks after court was settled (not exaggerating), the information was completely wrong about what was actually agreed on in court. An audio cd had to be ordered from to court so he could get the correct information which delayed the process another 4 weeks. When I confronted him several different times about his mistakes, blatant lies and poor work ethic, he became angry and yelled at me in his office. On the day of court, he rushed me through major decisions about custody and strongly suggested something that other attorneys have asked me several times...."Why would you ever agree to that!" I've never been through the process...I didn't know what else to do. His work ethic, level of competency, and effort were not even close to professional. I DEEPLY regret hiring him as my attorney. He put me in a worse situation that I could have ever imagined with my son. Please don't make the same mistake.

Do NOT reccommend this lawyer
I was told not to hire this lawyer for my divorce and wish I had taken the advice. When I first met with him over a year ago I was told it would take only a few months. It has been over a year, and my ex and I are not even contesting anything! They are slow to respond to phone calls, lied about the process and also the length of time for filing of paperwork ,etc. Has offered NO advice when I call for legal counsel and even included wrong information on the divorce paperwork on more than one occasion. Secretary is completely unprofessional and bad mouths other clients right in front of you. DO NOT hire this lawyer!
