Separation Agreement Representation
Kristen was absolutely phenomenal representing me from start to finish. She is the consummate professional and took the time to understand the details of my particular situation in an effort to achieve the desired outcome. The most important thing anyone wants with their legal representation is a clear understanding of what can be achieved "legally" versus what can be achieved from idealistic perspective...and Kristen was absolutely crystal clear about what my options were so that I was able to move the process forward efficiently and cost effectively. Each individuals circumstances are unique, and Kristen went out of her way to make sure that I knew my case was as important to her as it was to me...and I believe that's what sets her apart from other firms out there!!! Thanks for everything Kristen!!! Jason

Exceptional Guidance... Exceptional Results!!!
Kristen's knowledge and expertise in the area of Employee Benefits is second to none. She was able to help me out of a very difficult predicament I was put in this past summer, without her guidance I would still be searching for answers. I have worked with several lawyers in the past and what sets Kristen apart from them is her ability to truly listen to her clients needs but more importantly her follow-up, I knew where I was in every step of the legal process, never once did I have to place a call to Kristen asking for updates on my case. I will continue using the Prinz Law firm in the future and highly recommend their services to anyone Thanks,
