Excellent estate planning attorney
Over the past 8 years, I've referred numerous clients, my parents and even myself to Michael for help with their/my estate planning. He is helpful, knowledgeable and client friendly. I appreciate the help that he has provided to me and my clients over the years. Also, all of the feedback from my clients has been positive!

Caring & Highly Effective Attorney
My company and many of my friends have used Michael Kemmy for years in assisting each of us in estate planning and tax matters. Michael is smart, caring, thorough in all his work and always puts the interest of his clients first. Over the years, I have encounter other people who have used Michael for legal matters and they all say the same thing...he is so knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. His legal fees are very reasonable, particularly when he provides you with first class legal representation. Today, not only do I consider him a valuable asset in helping my company and me personally, he has also become a special friend. He is a rare find!!!
