Experienced, Empathetic
From our very first conversation, Mr. Foote served as the calm amid the storm when my world was turned upside down. He's exceptionally sincere and decisive; I felt listened to and understood to the point that it felt like I was his only client each time we spoke.

An amazing attorney
I had gotten into trouble with the law in 2000 and was sentenced to prison for eight years in 2001. My wife at the time divorced me and kept my two children from me my entire sentence and then used the fact that I was an ex-felon to continue to keep them from me. Right after my son turned 18 my ex wife tried to come after me for a lot of money. A friend of mine from church was an attorney and told me I need to speak with Mr. Ken Foote. I did and hired him right away. One of the best decisions I have made! Mr. Foote’s knowledge and experience was a huge blessing for me and even though I had to pay some money to my ex wife it was NOTHING compared to what she was trying to do to me and get from me. Mr. Foote was so good that the judge handling my case even apologized to me for my ex wife’s actions and what she was trying to do, in fact he wasn’t even happy with her attorney. I am so thankful to my Lord Jesus for placing Mr. Foote in my life and incredibly grateful to Mr. Foote for how much he cares about his clients and the awesome job he did for me. Thank you Ken Foote and may Jesus bless you and your firm as you continue to be a blessing to others!

Attentive, detailed, does what's best
I have been working with Foote Law Firm recently for over 4 solid years (12 years total), and from the office staff, to just getting a phone call from Mr. Foote to talk to me when I was upset, this office is amazing. They gave me all the options, all the things that could happen and prepared me for the worst and even the best. In the end it was clearly the best as we won our case and my children are protected. I cannot thank this Kenneth Foote and his staff enough for having everything together and being extremely responsive to mine and my children's needs.

I would highly recommend the Foote Law firm and Kenneth L Foote.

The lawyer who helps write happy endings
Mr. Foote is quite possibly one of the best lawyers that I have ever had the luxury to meet or work with. In my profession, I have worked with lawyers and the legal system, so I've had the opportunity to meet many good lawyers in my time, but when I found myself on the other end of a lengthy custody battle, there is no better team that I could have wished to have on my side fighting for what was best for me and my child. Mr. Foote and his wonderful team are kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and understanding of everything that you may be going through or experiencing in your case. I am an anxious 'worry wart' and conflict-avoiding person by nature. So when my custody battle first arose, I found the whole emotional ordeal difficult to navigate and quite honestly, stressful and confusing at times. I felt like my whole world was catching fire. As any parent can imagine, I was overwhelmed with the thought that this was going to be a very scary and heart wrenching experience, yet what could be the most important battle of my life. I was fighting for my rights as a parent and what was best for my children and their future. I felt like I was lost....and alone. Only one child was at the center of my case, but I have two children. That meant that the fates of what is best for BOTH of my children, and for BOTH of their futures moving forward, would be decided by the outcome of my case. Enter Mr. Foot and his amazing office of intelligent, helpful, and professional staff. I felt reassured that I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Even at my most anxious and exhausted, they were the most attentive and unyielding legal support system anyone could ever ask for. Setting aside their personal demeanor, the professionalism and expertise that both him and his team show, are bar none top-notch. He represented me with with the utmost respect, consideration, and determination towards the positive outcome I wanted, as well as what was in the best interest of my child. All the while sifting through the often common and time consuming hoops, run arounds, and "he said she said" pileups that can often drag out in a divorce or custody dispute. He has a no games- common sense attitude and approach that I wish more lawyers among his field had. Not only is he trustworthy, fair, and not going to back down from what's right, but also competent, prepared, and extremely well-versed in the law. With straightforward speaking and honest information, he and his team work hard to keep both parties grounded and focused on what's important. He doesn't dance around the facts or sugar coat anything to take your money and sell you fake promises that he cannot deliver. He will sit down and discuss your case in a very compassionate and direct way that makes everything easy to understand. He also calls it like he sees it and he's not afraid to keep his clients focused on the realistic scope and outcome of their case. That speaks volumes to not only the opposing counsel, but to the family law judges who will be deciding your case. I don't think I could have found a better lawyer or legal team who would fight or work as hard and passionately as they, to ensure the positive outcome I was praying for. They managed and represent my case with some of the highest ethics, morals, and legal fortitude that I have ever seen. His number one mission was to make sure that I won my case, while protecting my rights and fighting for the rights and well being of my children. He and his team represented me with the fierceness that only a fellow parent could, and I could not be more happy with the outcome. Whatever type of case you have- I am more than confident that Mr Foote and his amazing team and staff, will manage your case with nothing but the highest quality and caliber of representation, to achieve the positive outcome and winning judgment that you deserve. Thank you again to Mr. Foote and his team/staff at the Foote Law Firm! You helped write our happy ending !

Excellent service, victorious outcome
Mr. Foote's overall knowledge and confidence in my case gave me such peace of mind. He kept reminding me to remain patient through the process and he was informative and encouraging. He also was very "real" and very truthful, he didn't hold anything back when explaining all potential outcomes. I'm thankful for the help of his staff, as well. There was always a prompt reply to my questions and the ladies in his office were very knowledgeable. This was, by far, the best attorney experience I have ever had.

Long journey with a grateful ending......
Mr. Foote handle my son's case with total professionalism, he kept us all up to date on every update pertaining to the case. It took many years but in the end the outcome was a positive one. He fought long hours days and night and never gave up on my son. He did his research and presented the FACTS and I would most definitely recommend his firm to anyone in need of a lawyer. He will definitely be our lawyer for the rest of our lives if and when we will ever need his service. Thank you again to the entire staff and Mr. Foote for the confidence in my son's case.

Best in the business!!!!!!!!
Never thought I'd need an attorney ever in my life, but if I need one again it's not even a question as to who I would hire. Kennith Foote is the best at what he does! This guy straight dominates the court room! I knew from the first phone conversation with Kennith Foote that I picked the right guy, we went over the case, the facts, he explained to me how all this was going to play out and what to expect. He couldn't of been more right with his prediction, and I couldn't of been more satisfied with his performance. I assure you If your reading this, that this is the guy you need and want on your side. I will also mention he was the most affordable. KENNITH FOOTE #1

Definitely consider retaing Mr. Foote and his team for whatever legal issues or charges you may be facing.
Ken Foote and his team were able to help me obtain a plea deal that i never thought would even be an option, for my case. They were able to work out a financial arrangement that worked for both sides and I would recommend Mr. Foote and his team to anyone facing criminal charges and need to retain representation that will do everything in there power to get the results you want.

He is the very best.
Mr Foote has helped my husband in multiple criminal cases. My husband is a 100% totally disabled Veteran who suffers from mental illness as a result. He worked magic and handled each case ( no weapons) unbelievably brilliant. He gets the very best deal possible.

A Life Saver
I was facing serious criminal charges and have never been in trouble before. I must admit I was nervous and felt like my life was over. I contacted Attorney Foote on a Saturday evening after bonding out of jail and was able to speak to him personally. Right from the start he put my mind at ease and explained the whole process. He took time and walked me through the best and worst case scenarios and listened to the facts of my case. I knew I was innocent and Attorney Foote stood by me. His entire staff was friendly and knowledgeable "holding my hand" through a difficult time. In the end my charges were dismissed and ultimately expunged from my record. Attorney Foote gave me my life back. I would recommend him to anyone in trouble.

When I feared everything and trusted no one I turned to K Foote and won
I'm a real person with real problems. I never thought about needing a lawyer except in extreme circumstances so when something out of the ordinary happened and now I was faced with court proceedings and legal papers I was unsure of which way to turn. Fear of what it would cost to clear this up alone was unnerving. The wrong move could ruin the life I was accustomed to. I learned of Ken Foote through a friend. They couldn't stop raving about his abilities. I met with him during an off peak hour which was the first hint that he was different than the rest. Then I talked to him. That was all it took. The man is no-nonsense. A straight shooter. He wasn't there to sell me on him, he was there to empower me for myself. I could have said thank you, moved on, gotten someone else, I don't think it mattered. In his mind, he tried to help. I hired him on the spot. No one will understand until they themselves are in this type of situation. Your whole world feels as if it may tumble or get lost. Who do you turn to? Who do you trust with everything, your family even, let alone all your interests and assets. Don't take my word for it. Talk to the man. As they say in the movies, "HE'S THE REAL DEAL". Those TV lawyers have nothing on him. MY life is better for having gone through this. Because now Ken Foote is my GA, like I have a doctor who is my GP. General Attorney, my go-to-guy on all things legal. I'm prepared for anything now. He had my back when I was in a crisis but now I breathe easier knowing he has my back whenever I need him.

A Truly Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Foote became my attorney nearly a year ago in my very complex, highly involved, Family Law Case. Like most divorces, this is a very difficult and stressful time in mine and my family's lives. Mr. Foote has been an outstanding Attorney who has worked very intensely to represent my case with his innate passion and Zeal. As I have said it many times before, Mr. Foote is STELLAR in the courtroom. He believes in what he does and seems that he became a lawyer because he wanted to help his help his clients navigate through a very confusing, very emotional, tremendously overwhelming time in hopes of ultimately gaining the results needed and necessary to help their lives and the lives of their children/families move forward in the best, most positive way. One thing that I feel I need to say here is after having gotten to know Mr. Foote over the last year in my case is that he really is a man of Strong Moral Character, Integrity. Mr. Foote is there for his clients and is even giving of his personal time when his client's case calls for it. Unlike my previous attorney, Mr. Foote was available to me to my case even on weekends and after hours if needed. This is not only unheard of with many other attorneys but can not only be very helpful to my case but actually turned out to be crucial during times of urgent matter(s) or even when something not as pressing was occurring. When Mr. Foote took on my case he literally hit the ground running and has not stopped since. He has accomplished what other attorneys told me would be impossible. Having Mr. Foote and his very capable highly proficient and compassionate staff on my case has been like not only having The Hybrid of Attorneys for a Family Law Case. Mr. Foote is not only very knowledgable but unlike other attorneys of his caliber, he actually remembers the facts and details, sometimes even the smallest of details that can be helpful to the case. With Mr. Foote as my attorney its been like having a caring, compassionate, and empathetic trusted friend on your case as he seems to have a real and vested interest in seeing a good outcome for his client(s). He will fight hard whenever he feels his client is getting the short end of the stick and is in a wrong &/or unfair situation. Additionally, as an Attorney in my Family Law case, I've noticed that Mr. Foote is thinking ahead and looking out for mine and my family's Best Interests and thinking of things that either affect us now or may in the future. Mr. Foote has truly had a passion for what he does and will fight for his client's case like its his only case.. And he's An Amazing Attorney and Stellar in the courtroom.. What more could you want in an Attorney??

Caring, Aggressive and Experienced
I was facing a serious criminal charge that would have resulted in loss of my career and freedom. Mr. Foote and his staff were available on a Saturday evening to answer my questions and calm my fears. Although I was a nervous wreck, Mr. Foote explained the process step by step. Although the charges were false, I went through weeks of anxiety. After hiring Mr. Foote as my attorney, I returned to my everyday life. He kept me informed every step of the way and eventually got all charges dismissed. He even helped me expunge my record. I totally recommend him and his caring staff.
