It was a comfort to have a lawyer who has got my back!
I have dealt with numerous Attorneys with my real estate investments, and only with Bill did I feel that I had a person who really cared about my rough situation. I knew without a doubt he had my back the entire time! Bill gave me well researched and outstanding legal advice by taking the extra time and effort to give me all my options. With all the emotional turmoil/harassment going on, I knew I was off my A game and felt extremely clouded, but Bill made me feel relaxed and gave me strength/courage through one of toughest time in my life! it was comforting to feel supported and be grounded again so I could make good decisions. Mr. Kroll was outstanding in negotiations, and was always ready to act and power through at the exact right time (I am seeing timing is everything).. with his legal expertise there was no bluffing him from my opponents... and in fact they were eager to settle after a few talks! I speculate they knew he and his firm would have kicked their asses. I would highly recommend Mr. Kroll to anyone who is looking for one of the strongest lawyers in the country... Bill helped me solve my delicate situation... and not to sound like an geico ad ... saved me a load of money as well! Thank you Bill.. I am grateful!

We we very nervous and scared when we consulted Bill. From day one he put us at ease, calmed us down and explain that sometimes in life we have to do things that go against our believes. Bill was always available to answer any question that we had. We hope to start anew again and want to thank him for giving us the light at the end of the tunnel. Antonio and Maria
