Special Attorney
My name is Daniel, I am writing this letter in regards to attorney Chuck Kay. I would like to let you know that in all my years of dealing with attorneys, I have never had a more compassionate, thorough attorney as Chuck has been to me. He set a very high bar for attorneys. He has never lead me to believe that my legal issues are any less important than anything else he is working on. I find Chuck Kay to be one of the best attorneys I've ever had the pleasure to work with. Hands-down I would give Chuck Kay as an attorney a five star rating for everything that he does for his clients. Sincerely, Danielle J Lucas

Saving Grace
Mr. Kay was a tremendous help in a time of need, in which I had deadlines and documents I had no knowledge on my own to decipher. He wrote a response to parties involved and got my case back on track and guided me through a proper course of action after that. Without Mr. Kay’s expertise, knowledge, and experience, I believe I would be in a deficit financially and time wasted. I would highly recommend Mr. Kay to anyone who desires representation they can trust and rest assured that they are in the hands of a well experienced and knowledgeable Lawyer.
