Excellent and thoughtful
Mr. Immel is an extremely thoughtful and detail oriented attorney. He always treated me as if my issues and case were the most important thing he had going on. He was quick to respond to my numerous questions and always made me feel comfortable to ask as many questions until I fully understood what was happening and my options.

Thank you!
I needed an attorney to look over a real estate contract to buy a house. He got it done quickly and was an excellent communicator. That’s a big deal— responding to questions in a timely way. Very much appreciated his availability and attention to detail.

Gas royalties
I had trouble collecting gas royalty rights after I purchased some property; the company gave me the run-a-round. I tried for over a year with no luck. I finally hired Mr. Immel and with in six months he had the matter settled and a check in my hand. Without Kris Immel settling the matter for me I think I would still be trying to collect my funds. Thank You Kris Immel. Joan

Bankruptcy Case
I was really hesitant about filing bankruptcy. Kris worked hard in reviewing my case, going over all my options, and giving me ample time to make a decision that would work best for my situation. He was thorough. He made sure everything was spelled out for the trustee and answered all my questions (sometimes even late in the evening). Kris was very personable and reassuring. I felt relaxed and comfortable from the first moment we met. He explained all the risks and what would happen step by step. When I left his office after filing, I had a court date and Kris' personal guarantee that he would be there with me every step of the process. He certainly kept his promise. I would recommend him to anyone thinking about bankruptcy.

Would highly recommend
I would highly recommend Mr. Immel. I utilized Mr. Immel's service twice, first for custody & child support for my oldest child and then again for sole custody of my youngest child. Both situations were very stressfull for me, but Mr. Immel handled everything with great ease and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I hope I will not need a lawyer in he future but if I do he will bethe first one I call.

Would recommend this attorney
I had two previous attorneys with Mr. Immel's previous company and after Kris was assigned my case, I received excellent assistance and feedback with my case. Kris took the time to answer my questions and I always felt he was available to answer any of my questions at the time of filing and after.

this atty was too nice even with the prosecutor. he had no faith in me up until the last minute. the prosecutor mentioned a plea bargain and that help me out alot and that's when my atty woke up and spoke to the judge on my behalf. prior to that he was counting the days i was going to serve which was more than than the judge give me. (she had more faith in me).
