An Excellent Attorney
I am a client of Attorney Birthed and found him to be a great attorney because he is knowledgeable, patient and thorough. He provided service regarding the settling of a very complex estate, that included a great deal of property and other assets. The settling of the estate was tedious work and I was more than satisfied with the outcome.I have retained Attorney Birkhead to settle other personal matters, as well.

Kevin Birkhead Review
Mr Birkhead is an excellent lawyer. I have used him for both personal needs as well as for my business needs, and in both situations I found him to be top-level. For personal, Mr Birkhead worked to create my wife and my wills and estates, and in business I hired him to help my company place liens on delinquent paying customers and other accounts receivable collection efforts. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. His work ethic, client support, ability to clearly explain any issues that may arise, and his true desire and ability to take care of his clients is evident in your first interactions with Mr Birkhead. He takes his legal and ethical responsibilities very seriously.
