I found Bob Kuehl on this site and was impressed by his responses to questions. I was even more impressed when I met him--and he continues to prove that I made the right choice as we progress through this litigation.
He doesn't simply explain the law and its ramifications in laymen's terms, he cites it, chapter and verse--even to opposing counsel. He has consistently provided the information and direction I have needed to make informed decisions, and he has positioned me to neutralize Defendant's antics and maintain peace of mind.
I am SO glad that Bob Kuehl is on my side of the table. I would not want him as opposing counsel.

I hired Bob to foreclose on a residential property on which I held the mortgage after consulting with two other attorneys. I chose Bob because he clearly laid out what to expect, the steps that would have to be taken if an early settlement could not be reached, the time-line and the approximate costs to complete foreclosure. Now going over my notes from this initial consultation, I am impressed by just how accurate Bob’s forecast was and feel extremely fortunate that I hired him.
There were many moving parts to this case, including a defendant who left the state. Bob professionally handled negotiations with the defendant’s attorney, and when terms could not be reached, he then methodically brought the foreclosure process to its conclusion. Bob kept me informed during the entire process and responded within hours to my phone and email messages. He made thoughtful suggestions about how we should deal with issues and potential issues, and as a result we were never surprised by events as the case unfolded. His fees were reasonable, and his monthly bills were detailed. I am very pleased with the work Bob did and would not hesitate to use him again. I highly recommend him.
