We needed advice and representation quickly. Mr. Stanley was prompt in his reply to our request and knowledgeable about the process and the steps to move forward. He made us feel that we finally had someone working on our behalf. It was very easy to talk with this attorney, he was genuine in his desire to help the situation. So glad we hired him!

Passionate Lawyer
When I needed help on a matter that was unjust, I could only think of one person to call. Over the years working in the criminals justice system, I have seen Mr. Stanley work tirelessly for his clients and he truly goes above and beyond. When I found myself needing an attorney on a civil matter, I called Mr. Stanley and as expected, he did not disappoint. By the end of this civil matter, Mr. Stanley got the case dismissed, attorney fees paid by the petitioner and I didn't even to have to go to court. 10 out of 10 recommend this man.

Proven knowledge, diligence, communication and success.
I am a criminal defense attorney that needed a personal injury attorney after I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident. As an attorney I understand that finding the right representation is key to the successful outcome of a case and I made a very careful and deliberate decision to choose Mr. Stanley. He has over 30 years of experience in both criminal and civil matters, which includes many years working both for and against insurance companies. I’ve known Mr. Stanley professionally for several years now, and I knew he was the right attorney for my case. From the start he was extremely diligent and communicative. He has a deep understanding of the law and was instrumental in obtaining a favorable result in my case. He can do the same for you!

We truly needed his skills; he stayed with us; and he got it done.
Mr. Stanley guided our family through some very dark, harrowing days, in a matter of life or death for our incarcerated loved one. He was the only person, of those who could make a difference, who picked up the phone; and he pick it up for me every single time or called me right back. I respected his time, but he took what time was needed and the actions needed to get the job done in a system which was baffling and impenetrable to us. In particular he got immediately on a crisis situation regarding the jail and resolved it that day. Today, our loved one is home, legal issues handled, attending school, employed, happy, and going gangbusters for life. Mr. Stanley's work was absolutely vital. He did it right, and our family is most grateful.

Excellent
Cutting to the chase, Mr. Stanley is the only attorney I will recommend. He's very sharp, smart and trustworthy while at the same time honest, open and straightforward. He helped me with more than just legal troubles. While other attorneys turned me away because of my record. To be honest, if you need an attorney, this is the man to have in your corner.

Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Kent Stanley for legal representation. Mr. Stanley was very detailed in explaining all my options when I was facing criminal charges. I had never faced criminal charges in the past and was not versed in the legal system. I appreciated the time he took with answering all of my questions (there were many) and was always very prompt in answering phone calls. Facing any type of criminal charges is a serious issue and will negatively impact your life in many ways. It is important that you find a lawyer who is going to take your case seriously and work with you to resolve what the best outcome may be for you. I feel that Mr. Stanley did that for me and I am confident that my case was resolved with the best outcome possible.
