When my husband died leaving me and our minor son behind, his long-estranged adult children suddenly wanted a family reunion for the first time in many years - a reunion with the assets that were left to me and my minor son. Kent Berk fought fiercely and creatively on our behalf through 5 federal lawsuits that were caused by these greed-ridden criminals to get this resolved as quickly and humanely as possible with an excellent outcome for me and my son. He and his firm are extremely professional and kind and knowledgeable and the fees are very fair. Kent leaves no detail uncovered in his relentless pursuit of achieving the best outcome for his client. If I could give 10 stars here I would. I would hire him again in a minute if the need ever arose.

When my sister died I found myself in a really bad mess trying to Probate her Estate. The worst part was an ex-spouse who did not want to fulfill a Divorce (he wanted to just keep all her money. . .to "help" him raise the kids. . .that is, to support himself and thereby "help" raise the kids). If you are Divorced or concerned about making sure your children receive what is theirs and not a future spouse's long after you've passed, you must meet with Kent. Kent is amazing in the courtroom and was able to cut through a lot of "smoke and mirrors" that the ex-spouse tried to use. He knows. . .really has that working knowledge. . .of how things happen in a Probate case. Lots of lawyers will "advise" you, and they will have never really worked a case based on their advice. I wish I had known Kent when the whole mess started, he would have saved me (probably more) $30,000.00 I gave to another firm. . .with NO real results. Kent ALWAYS had my back, he was always professional and really cared about how my case would affect me.

I have known Kent for almost 20 years and have utilized his legal services for roughly the same. My legal service needs have been varied, spanning corporate, real estate, personal injury and family law, and I have utilized various attorneys depending on scope and area of practice.
However, all of my litigation needs have been handled exclusively by Kent and his team, and most notably in the areas of intellectual property, corporate and personal injury litigation, and with favorable outcomes in every case.
I would trust no other attorney for such. Kent is not only highly experienced and knowledgeable, but he has an uncanny sense when it comes to the application of strategic planning and tactical execution. He is very thorough and misses no details in his planning.
I can highly recommend Kent's legal services without any reservation.

I endorse this lawyer. I have been involved in a number of trust/estate litigation matters with Mr. Berk and his firm, the Berk Law Group. I have always found Kent to be a professional and reasonable attorney to work with, but also a strong and dedicated advocate for his clients.
