Excellent Attorney
Linda is knowledgeable, dependable, responsive and dedicated. Her office is extremely organized. I needed an attorney in a difficult time in my life and I would not wish that on anyone. But Linda helped by explaining the process every step of the way, always outlining my options and aggressively representing my interests.

Compassionate, knowledgable and tough
I would highly recommend Linda Kerns and I do regularly to friends and colleagues. I have used Linda's services on several occasions but most recently with help purchasing a house. Linda is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. She was very persistent about checking the footprint of the property during inspection and thank goodness as the deed of record was incorrect and needed to be amended. She kept everything else in check and is very responsive whatever the time of day. It is obvious that Linda enjoys her work, but more importantly it is clear that she takes great pride in doing things to the very best of her ability. She demonstrates great integrity and is very much in control of any situation. Her principle focus is family law and frankly if you are getting divorced you should hire Linda as you do not want to find yourself on the other side of the table!
