saved my business
Ken saved my business from a several million dollar real estate arbitration where us subcontractors were being squeezed between the owner and the general contractor. Thanks to him, we owed nothing to the owner or the general contractor when all was finished. He worked quickly and carefully on the case through every deposition and protected me very well in the three week long trial.
