Easy Bankruptcy
I searched for Kingsford Law Offices on google, and saw a couple bad reviews - I object! The attorney I used out of their office was Ron, and he was super helpful and everything was in order for me. I'm 22 and needed to file bankruptcy due to illness and medical debt. Their office got me an appointment quickly, which was fast and helpful, and when the 341 hearing came up, he met me there and walked me through it. I was discharged debt free and would recommend this office to anyone, hands down.

Delightful Experience
I needed legal help resolving a traffic ticket. I'm from Kansas and got a ticket in Colorado. Ron Kingsford was able to help me get it dismissed quickly. I was impressed with his office staff's friendliness and willingness to help when I called. I would recommend this firm to anyone.

Helpful and Knowledgeable
I hired Mr. Kingsford for my divorce in 2014 and he was able to help me through my difficult case. We went to court and he helped with my concerns and made the process almost easy. Great value for the experience. I am very satisfied.

Great experience
I hired Ron Kingsford to help me with a felony theft charge. He went above and beyond my expectations and was able to negotiate an amazing deal for me with the DA. His office was easy to work with and happy to make sure I understood every thing to expect each step along the way.

Lost my children because of him
Absolute TRAIN WRECK of a lawyer! Do not hire him! I had an ugly custody battle with my ex, where I needed to leave the state for my safety. I called his office, where he made lofty promises about not losing any time with my children. I had THREE phone calls with him, where all he wanted to do was talk about money. The entirety of my legal consulting was with his paralegal, who assured me that Mr. Kingsford was diligently working on my case. I brought up multiple instances of my ex stalking me, claiming I had substance abuse issues. You name it, he claimed it. I asked what we were going to do about all of these accusations, and he simply said "I'll dispute those." When I went to give him character references and evidence of my ex's behavior he simply told me "it was too late to admit anything in evidence" Which now I know is completely untrue, he's simply a LAZY, MONEY HUNGRY attorney. I told him at one point police had been called, and instead of reaching out to the police to find out what had happened. He simply said, "we'll can get around that." Not to mention all of the time I'm out state, working two jobs and going to school full time. I heavily relied on him to actually do his job, keep me safe, and for me to get my children. When it came time to for the actual trial (that we went into with no character witnesses, no witnesses to back up my claims of abuse, people who knew that I was sober. You know, IMPORTANT things), he fumbled asking questions, had no responses for my ex's attorney. When it came down to finances and paperwork, HE DIDNT HAVE EVERYTHING FILED. I was missing important paperwork, that HIS OFFICE SAID I HAD GIVEN HIM. When the judge asked where all of this EXTREMELY IMPORTANT paperwork was. He simply shrugged. Not only did I look like a terrible mother, I walked out losing everything and with an insane amount of back child support. He allowed them to make me look like a complete mess, when all I wanted to do was fight for my children and keep myself safe. Mr. Kingsford is a complete joke, how he has any clients is beyond me. I have been trying to save up the money for a competent attorney just to fix all of the problems he has caused. Do not hire him, he will do more damage than he could ever prevent. He is a predatory attorney, he will promise you the world and give you nothing in return. I have nothing good to say about him, and tell everyone I can never to hire him.

I recommend staying away from his services entirely.
I am writing this review to present my opinion of the services provided by Ron A. Kingsford. I found his work on my behalf not only unsatisfactory, but also unacceptable. I was looking for a representation for a protection / restraining order case in Weld county, because the nature of the case was not simple. When I talked to Ron A. Kingsford he seemed to be knowledgeable, open, and attentive. However, as soon as I paid him my retainer, I felt like he wanted me to do his job for him. In particular, he wanted me to go find the plaintiff’s place of residence. The temporary restraining order which had already been issued indicated I should not have any contact with accuser. So my investigating of plaintiff’s place of residence could put me in additional legal jeopardy. The consequences I was trying to avoid. Then when I asked him what we need to do to prepare for the hearing. His answer was that we will be alright. After that time, it became difficult to get hold of him up until the hearing date. When the time came for the court hearing, he was not prepared what so ever. It looked like he thought that he would walk in to the courtroom and win the case effortlessly. Nevertheless, the reality was opposite. After the hearing ended, on the way to out of the court building in hallway, he shared with me that we lost the case because the judge was female and did the ruling based on hate to the male kind. When I asked him what could be done to reverse the court’s decision, his answer was that I could hire him again to appeal the judge’s decision. I asked him for my money back. He said that in his opinion he did a great job. When I repeated my request that I want my retainer back, he shouted several times loudly at me that I needed to calm down, as if I was about to offend him. In the conclusion: I would not recommend Mr. Kingsford to anyone. Based on the service he provided me I would have less legal troubles. Actually, I recommend staying away from his services entirely.

No compassion for anyone's situation
You can never get a hold of him. When I first met with him he seemed open and attentive but as soon as I have him my retainer it was like he hardly worked. Took days to return phone calls and emails. He was supposed to have some EXTREMELY time sensitive paperwork to my husband, who's overseas in the army, last week. It's due tomorrow and still don't have anything. He gives lofty promises yet when you ask about them he tells you how unrealistic they are and you'll have to settle. He has no sense of urgency in his work and acts like he doesn't give a crap. I begged him to get us the paperwork sooner rather than later so my husband would have time to sign and return from the Middle East. No such luck. He has no compassion for those in the armed services working over seas.

Family and Child Custody - not what I expected
I was looking for representation in a family matter that was meant to protect my rights and to assist in keeping my custody of my children. Mr. Kingsford seemed to be a lawyer to help me to do this. The Court was meant to just clarify Child Support, Visits, and the small things such as reporting school information and having access to records. First Court shows up and is basically preliminary, the second one also goes about the same. During this time I had wanted to speak to him regarding some details beyond our initial meeting when I hired him. I never could reach him and I was always left leaving messages for him to return my call. When we did talk it was brief and none of the items I hired him for were being addressed or getting a clear plan from Mr. Kingsford or his office. Then came when he took over 2 weeks to return my call with excuses saying he never recieved any of my original messages and was returning the last message that I had left over a week ago. I burned through about half of the money I had given him as a retainer and nothing was done. It was a clear waste of money, time, and only set myself back hiring Mr. Kingsford. I do admit in the begining he was all ears and that he could represent me and what I was looking to do in my case regarding the custody and details for my children. But I felt that after the money exchanged hands he became unavailable to consult with me. I would not recommend Mr. Kingsford to anyone.
