Professional,Thoughtful and Kind
I had a bad fall, followed by surgery & PT, followed by lots of medical bills. I really wasn't sure what to do. I really just needed my bills paid. Mr. Kirkpatrick kept me upto date, and filtered through all those confusing papers from multiple insurance companies. He took the time to explain things and checked in with me often. My medical bills are covered. To my suprise there was a sum for me too. Extremly professional, polite, and kind.

Simply The Best
Our lives turned upside down last September after a car accident that broke my fiance's femur seemingly ending his career and injuring myself as well. We were represented by Kent and we received the maximum amount possible for our cases. He fought for us. He is an excellent attorney but more importantly, he's a good man.

Simply the Best!
Mr. Kent Kirkpatrick is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with or met. I was involed in a very complex auto accident with personal injury. He spent hours talking to me and would give me advise on what to do. Attorney Kirkpatrick is a true professional in my eyes and helpful beyond words! He helped me reach a huge settlement and I can't express my appreciation enough!

Experienced & Knowledgable
Kent has a lot of experience with a wide variety of personal injury cases. Having served as a defense attorney, he has the unique understanding of how insurance adjusters and defense attorneys think, so that he is able to maximize the value of his cases.

Great work!
I had never been in an accident before I came to see and the accident was a devastating experience. I was overwhelmed at times with the process of fighting for my rights. Kent was always a calming force that provided stability to my unstable world at the time. The best compliment I could give Kent is he was never too much nor too little a force. I received a settlement that will help my family tremendously and I am very well pleased with the results.
