The best lawyer you could ask for
Louis helped me with a previous problem with a former landlord. We were able to move out of that situation into a new dump. After a year of no contact we reached out to Louis and he immediately began helping us! For a very easy and reasonable fee he drafted a release document, after carefully reading all my numerous complaints that were documented. He counseled me to the best decision and helped us remove ourselves from the past situation we were dealing with. If you want a down to earth, very easy going, punctual person, you need to use this man! He answered every question, took care of every concern, and was readily available any time!

Highly recommend Louis Kroeck!
Mr. Kroeck was diligent and persistent in his efforts to help me achieve trademark filing. His research and advising was thorough. And, he explained everything to me in such a way that I was able to understand. We achieved successful trademark filing thanks to his leadership. I enjoyed working with him and highly recommend him.

Strong litigator, Excellent communication, Great attorney!
I've used several attorneys over the years and have never met someone like Lou. He is a strong advocate and zealously fights for his clients. Calls/Emails with any updates or changes in case, and is very proficient and knowledgable in the area of technology, in addition to the law and litigation. I feel extremely lucky to have Lou representing our current case. I would recommend his skills to anyone.

Definitely ask this attorney
Mr. Kroeck was unable to help me because he is not licensed in Ohio. However, he did send a referral for me to another attorney. Just that much effort to inform me that he could not help, and his effort to refer me to another attorney is greatly appreciated. He could have just ignored me like so many others did, but he took the time. For those he can help, that's the sign of a great attorney.

Absolute Pleasure to Work With
I hired Lou to represent me in an intellectual property dispute with a former employer. By the time I had hired Lou, I had already been through 2 other lawyers who had failed to deliver on anything but the bill. I did my research and came across Lou on this (as well as other websites). He was highly rated on all. From my first meeting with him, I knew I had found my lawyer. He was incredibly intelligent, well-spoken, and very quick to pick up on the intricacies of the case (even though it was very technical). Lou was able to take the case from being 100% on the defensive to reaching a settlement that was absolutely fair for all involved (all I was looking for). Bottom-line: Lou is a great lawyer, MUCH better than either of the two "partners" (at other firms) I had previously engaged. I give him my highest recommendation.

Good experience
Lou was recommended to me by a mutual friend to help with some real estate issues we ran into after purchasing the home. Lou took the time to review everything in detail with us and explain all of our options, with inevitably lead to us receiving a settlement.
