Jeff Kriske and Randy DeLelles
Kristan helped us with two separate issues and in each instance was reliable and professional. She was quick to accommodate our schedule and we were very impressed. We would recommend her without reservation.

GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND
I AM FACED WITH SEVERE PENALTIES CONCERNING A CIVIL MATTER. I WAS REFERRED TO AARON AND KRISTAN DUE TO THEIR IMMENSE EXPERIENCE IN THIS TYPE OF LAW. I AM GOING THROUGH BANKRUPTCY AND CAN NOT AFFORD THE RETAINER FOR A CASE SUCH AS THIS...WITH THAT SAID, AARON AND KRISTAN STILL WENT THROUGH MY SUMMONS AND GAVE ME A WEALTH OF INFORMATION TO TRY TO DEFEND MYSELF. THEY BOTH WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND WHAT I HAD EXPECTED. MY BELIEF IS THAT YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND BETTER LAWYERS THAN THESE TWO.
