Kirk Angel was a godsend to me at a terrible time in my life. I had been fired from my job and had to have a hearing with the Employment Security Commission to get my unemployment benefits. I was scared to death and Kirk settled me down, told me what I needed to do and went to the hearing with me, which we won! He was very knowledgeable and caring. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

My daughter was twice denied NCESC benefits through phone hearings. Thanks to you and your staff she went through both with calm assurance. Through your tenacity and legal skill, the NCESC sided with my daughter, overturned the decision and awarded her the unemployment benefits she was due. Had she not contacted you, she would have become another statistic of denied benefits.
Although she received several solicitations for legal assistance, she chose The Angel Law Firm because of you. and your staff. Your calm reassuring demeanor and personal attention far outweighed any other firm she contacted. From my perspective there are larger firms that perform these duties but none of them provide the personal touch to the client, which is the cornerstone of your firm’s philosophy.
I would have written this letter whether she won her appeal or not. Throughout this entire process you maintained a firm stance that her employer was wrong. In the face of overwhelming odds you went forward because of your character and integrity. Neither of these traits can be bought or acquired; one either has them or not.
In the future I will certainly refer others to you and the Angel Law Firm. Again thank you for all your hard work and know that it is genuinely appreciated.

I met Mr Angel in 2009 when I hired him for employment matters. Over my 19 year career with my former employer, I had worked closely with many attorney's and so I am familiar about attorneys and how many of them operate. Mr Angel proved himself to be the best attorney that I have known, but not only is he a super attorney, he is a super person. He is very intelligent, he never forgets anything he sees, reads, or hears, he is very professional, very quick witted, and he knows his stuff!! He is very personable and makes you feel as your case is very important to him and certainly makes you feel as if he is on your side. When you have him as your attorney he puts you at ease at a time when you most need it, but he certainly puts the other side in their place. He is very reachable, never has he failed to answer my questions quickly. I think highly of his secretary too, she is wonderful. I have now hired him for three different issues and been pleased with with Mr Angel ever time. If you want an attorney that stands beside and supports you and your case and does everthing he can to fight for you and your case and that you can trust to be honest with you, he is the one! In my book, Mr Angel is the Best!!!!

I endorse this lawyer. In every matter that I have been involved in with Kirk Angel, I have found him to be highly competent in legal knowledge and skill and have found his ethical ability and character to be peerless. Kirk Angel zealously represents his clients, but also effectively represents his clients. I would recommend any employment law client to Kirk Angel without hesitation.

Kirk is a terrific lawyer at what he does. If I personally needed a lawyer for employment issues, Kirk is the very first attorney I would call, and actually have called him on numerous occasions. He is smart, personable, and knows what he's doing. I have always been impressed with his ability to handle his cases and simply to "do the right thing."
