For nearly three decades, I have worked to provide the best possible legal representation for clients by doing what it takes to get the job done, and charging clients only for productive time at a reasonable rate.  I truly believe in putting the client first.  During our first meeting, we will have an honest conversation about what you expect and hope to achieve.  It is important at the beginning of our relationship to have an honest discussion about your goals, whether I can actually help you achieve them, and the ways in which the journey could play out.  Keeping clients informed of what is going on is paramount - decisions about how to proceed belong to the client, not the lawyer.

I provide services in the following areas:

  • Business Law- formations, contracts, employment agreements, general counseling
  • Estate Planning and Probate
  • Real Estate transactions and disputes
  • Civil Litigation and Appeals
  • Tax Law disputes
  • Social Security Disability Income and Supplemental Security Income Benefits
  • Wrongful Death
  • Collections, Judgment Enforcement, and Enforcement of Liens
  • Liquor Licenses

Excellent job
Kent handled our property tax case. He won the case without ever going to a hearing. Kent was very knowledgeable and professional in all of our communications.

Estate Planning
Prepared Estate Documents for My Father. Very informative about all the legal things that needed to be taken care of and presented him with a very nice portfolio with copies of all documents needed for the necessary time.

Review for Kent Bieberich
Kent has helped me with legal issues, contracts, etc., pertaining to my business and personal life. He is thorough, thoughtful, experienced, professional, and highly qualified.
Posted by Michael | April 23, 2012
Highly competent and patient
Kent is extremely knowledgeable and patient. When my father recently passed away unexpectedly Kent helped me to negotiate the contract for the sale of my father’s business. Without Kent’s competent and patient help, we would not have been able to retain important rights under the contract, including the right to penalties if the payments were not paid properly. We would not have gained important concessions, including having the payment stream be assignable. Kent was instrumental in the beneficial outcome. He enabled us to get fair value for the business and made it possible for me to continue supporting my disabled brother.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mr. Bieberich is a skilled attorney whose pragmatic approach and keen understanding of the law make him a very effective advocate. I have worked along side him in matters in which we have shared similar interests and opposite of him in contentious cases. When opposing him, preparation is a priority because he researches all potential issues to support his detailed legal arguments. Mr. Bieberich is highly ethical. Equally so, he is reasonable, fair-minded and has a good sense of collegiality. He listens to reasonable requests from opposing counsel, taking into consideration prospective outcomes for the benefit of his clients. I also know Mr. Bieberich to be an active member of his community and a helpful participant in various charitable causes. I endorse Mr. Bieberich for all the foregoing reasons."
