Attorney Awesome Kemet
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”, Churchill said it best. I have failed back to back in court as I fought back against the ropes representing my discouraged and emotionally drained. I found Attorney Kemet on Avvo and read his reviews and something spoke to me and said this is the guy. I was facing a case that could have destroyed my livelihood. My child’s father hasn’t been in his daughters life since birth, but only after 8 years I found the courage to ask the courts for childcare expenses. Shortly after the father wanted to take the only help our family received her entire existence. I was afraid of losing my job with childcare. Not being able to provide her a home, food, healthcare, the luxury of a bed and safe place to sleep at night. After meeting Attorney Kemet, within less than 30 he gave me hope, light, understanding of the law, power to protect my livelihood. He doesn’t waste time or your money. Honest, professional, strategic, brilliant, Poise, calm, level headed, expert in law. I appreciate how he performs in court. He was calm never sweated or even blinked for the opposing party, even had the opposing lawyer agree with his argument. Unbelievable, didn’t just win he served the law on a gold platter. I suggest if you have a legal issue and need help call, email or stop by Attorney Kemet Firm and make an appointment. He is ranked best and he earned every letter in his title.

The best divorce lawyer in the state
Well, let me start with the person, that answers the phone as it is the first person from the office you come in contact. She is always greets you nicely and in the friendly manner, very pleasant person to deal with as you make your calls to the office. If you dealt with lawyers before like I did, this is extremely rare, majority of assistants seem to have attitude, but not their team. They always patient, happy to answer any questions or provide updates. Extremely pleasant experience. As for Mr. Anu Kemet, the divorce couldn’t have gone any smoother. Very knowledgeable and honest lawyer, no hidden fees, very transparent . If you looking for a great lawyer and his team to take care fo you, he is the one. Again extremely professional lawyer, I found him on the internet and my deadlines were very short, and he took care of me like no other would. Will recommend to everyone in my family and friends or anyone that appreciates and looking for experience like I described in my review.

I hired Anu Kemet to represent me in in my child custody case. He obtained favorable results that lead to more time with my son, less money out my pocket in the form of child support, and an ear to vent too. He is an excellent attorney that combines wit, technical ability, and sound negotiation skills to bring about favorable outcomes without having to litigate. He is honest, reasonably priced, and a firm advocate of his client. I highly recommend Anu.

Consulting is worth it!
I consulted Kemet for legal advice(Criminal and Business) on many occasions. The information he provided allowed me to make an informed decision when hiring an Attorney and if was financially sound to hire one. Kemet provided no nonsense suggestions and the reality of an outcome based on the information I provided. Although, state lines prohibited me from hiring Kemet, the Consultation alone saved me time, court expenses and many dollars. His straight to the point and matter of fact approach is exactly what I was looking for. Didn't want any sugar-coating, or coddling. Kemet continues to be my leverage of practicality when I need or require legal advice.

Experienced and Committed Divorce Lawyer
I highly recommend Attorney Anu Kemet to represent your voice and interests for any family law case. As an experienced and committed divorce lawyer, he is professional, attentive, very responsive, and has a great legal team to support all of your needs. He made an emotional and difficult situation easier to deal with by being available and compassionately explaining every step of the process during the initial meetings. Attorney Kemet’s efforts went a long way towards easing my stress and establishing trust. He patiently listened to my wants and needs and then clearly and concisly communicated them to the other party. His successful and creative legal strategy demonstrated his analytical and research skills. He was able to close the case quickly, avoid contentiousness and ended with the best possible divorce agreement.

Great legal advice.
Mr. Kemet advised me on a legal case I had with a construction crew. They were severely behind schedule and caused a lot of extra fees and costs. We successfully one the case.

Custody issue
I contacted Mr. Kemet to provide feedback on a custody issue with my former husband about potential access he would have to my children after his release from prison. I was concerned that I would need to hire an attorney to ensure that my X would not be able to visit my children unsupervised. Attorney Kemet assured me that my X would not be able to make such an attempt or demand visitation due to him being on probation and based on his conviction. Mr. Kemet was very helpful and put me at ease without attempting to sell me services that at the time were not needed. I really appreciate the time he took to advise me on an issue that was creating fear and anxiety in my life. Mr. Kemet will be the first place I’ll turn if further legal expertise is needed.
