  • Rachel Estelle Montes

    Kern's brilliance and tenacity in the courtroom is matched only by the passion and skill he shows in every case he handles. I have had the privilege of working with Kern, collaborating on cases, and I can say without a doubt he is one of the most skilled and prepared trial lawyers I have ever met. Kern has a true ability to communicate for his clients, because he leaves no stone unturned in the groundwork and preparation phase of a case. Kern is someone I would hire to represent me.
