Excellent Attorney!!
Mr. Krist and his team at the Krist Law Firm were not only professional but caring. They became such a huge part of our lives and went beyond the call of duty for us. They did an amazing job for me and my family and I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Krist and his firm to anyone that finds themselves needing an attorney that cares and will get the job done. Thank you Scott, for all of your hard work!

Great plaintiff's lawyer, very professional
I have known the Krist family for almost 40 years. I knew exactly who I needed to turn to when we had a very unfortunate and tragic accident which involved the injury and hospitalization of our 9 year old son. Scott Krist and The Krist Law Firm were sympathetic, professional and most of all compassionate to our situation. Scott took charge from the very beginning, handling every aspect of our case, which allowed us to concentrate on the healing of our son. Scott took care of all the legal issues we faced which resulted in a positive outcome for our son’s future and his healing and for this our family is very appreciative. Sincerely, Mike

Hard working, dependable, tough, caring, knowledgable
I have never met a more trustworthy, knowledgeable, tough, caring, individual like Scott Krist. From our first conversation I knew Scott was someone that I could depend on. Any time that I had a question he was there to answer them. All the other lawyers I contacted wouldn't take my case. Scott had no hesitation to take on the task with tenacity. When the defense wanted to settle out of court for a minimal amount Scott stood his ground and didn't budge. Scott fought very hard in my case. Brought all the facts to the table and in the end prevailed. Not only is Scott Krist my lawyer I consider him a friend now.

Personal injury Attorney | Feb 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Scott Krist is one of the finest lawyers I've had the privilege of working with, and also against. His level of preparation is unparalleled. More impressive is that his legal acumen likely doesn't require his level of preparation, which should be all the more frightening for his opponents. But probably most impressive is Scott's ability to see through to the crux of the issue, hone in on it with laser focus and never let up. If I, or one of my loved ones had the misfortune of being catastrophically injured, Scott would be at the very top of my list of lawyers to call. He is an artisan of advocacy. Paxton N.
