Best Attorney
Ron Jurgeson and staff are exceptional to deal with. I contracted with him regarding a non-fault accident and he is professional, informative and courteous.

Highly Recommended
I worked with Ron registering my divorce in Missouri from Kansas. He was very thorough and worked closely with me on virtually all aspects of my case. While other attorneys may have looked at this as a simple transfer case, Ron took my concerns seriously and delivered on everything he said that he would do with no prodding or reminding from me. He worked with opposing counsel and represented my interests at all time. I have since gone to Ron on other matters and he has always been quick to respond and provides thoughtful and relevant advice. I give my highest recommendation to Ron.

Excellent legal services
I hired Ron to take care of the probate estate for my late mother. He did a fantastic job, and the probate case was wrapped up successfully and quickly. Furthermore, he kept me informed about things as the case proceeded. To sum up: Ron is an attorney who is both highly competent and very personable. I couldn't be happier with his services. I highly recommend him.
