Sr. Facilities Manager
I worked with Preston for over four years in a professional setting. We worked on numerous contracts ranging from property owner/management to vendors and suppliers. He has an eye for quality and thoroughness. I never left his office without knowing that I got his best work when I had questions about business and contact questions. He is 100% class and professionalism.

Highly Recommended
Preston has done great work for us and I can’t recommend him enough. He’s worked on all of our contracts and trademarks and provided us with the legal advice we need to navigate our highly regulated industry.

Great Council
We have worked with Preston on several projects over the last few years. He has worked with us to create new contracts and agreements to launch two new services. He was very detailed oriented and completed the projects in a timely manner. We also used Preston to help us with a partner buyout. He was experienced and helped us navigate the process with ease. I would recommend Preston to anyone who is looking for a great attorney.

Caring and expert legal help
We needed some contracts created for our new business. Because we're new business owners we greatly appreciated Preston's expertise as he consulted with us. Preston spent as much time as we needed communicating with us and helping us form the legal plan we needed. Preston quickly responded to our questions and requests for revisions to the contract drafts he was writing for us. After the final products were ready, Preston gave us follow-up consulting and made sure we had everything we needed. Preston was very reasonably priced and gave us far greater value for our money than other attorneys we've worked with in the past. We will definitely be working with Koerner Legal again in the future!

Excellent Attorney
In all my contacts with Mr. Koerner, he has always exhibited a high degree of knowledge and professionalism. I have leaned on him several times over the last 4 years for advice and he has always provided a thorough explanation. He is very experienced and definitely takes care of his clients. If you are seeking a lawyer, there's none better that I could recommend.

Procurement Manager
I have worked with Preston Koerner on many occasions over the last several years and I can honestly say he has been one of my most trusted advisors. He is a very personable and thorough professional handling the most complex agreements. I have worked with him through many projects and his insight and knowledge of the situation and law is tremendous. In reviewing and negotiating contracts and agreements he has a way of looking at the issues and problems from another angle and coming up with creative solutions to satisfy both parties. I would recommend Preston as a legal advisor.

Co-Worker and Business Associate
I have worked with Preston as a co-worker as well as retaining him as outside legal counsel. He is a consummate professional in his personal conduct and in the quality of his work. He is very skilled at contract development and negotiation and has great breadth of thinking while working through agreements. Preston is a tough negotiator, but I have seen his positions are reasonable, and his counterparts like working with him. He delivers work when he says he will. He has a strong knowledge of general commercial and consumer lending, with niche expertise in areas such as leasing, factoring and structured asset-based lending. His bank regulatory knowledge is also strong. He is a go to attorney for me when legal help is needed.
