Winning Attorney
I have had the pleasure of working with Drew twice. His legal skills are excellent plus his overall strategic thinking was critical to our success. He cares about his clients and their cases because he is committed to being one's advocate and not just his billable hours. More important he sees his clients as whole human being and has your best welfare at heart and not just winning the case at all cost. I also found that his corporate experience was very beneficial to my case. He is extremely ethical and walks the talk.

Termination package associated with closure of office
Drew was compassionate, professional, and knowledgeable about the law. He assisted me with my negotiations with my former employer to hammer out a fair package for being terminated after 23 years of employment.

Strong Labor Contract Negotiator
Drew negotiated a strong and fair labor contract for my company. He created a good negotiation environment; the SLAs were clear and easily tracked by either party; during my tenure the contract did not require amendment.

Great Attorney
During a very difficult and stressful situation, Andrew is who you want on your side. He took the time to explain each step, my options and his recommendations. I never felt pressured and he had a way of taking the "difficult" out of the process. He was very approachable and patient, but was tough when needed. I can't say enough about Andrew and would highly recommend him to anyone I know and already have.

Amazing Attorney
Drew is the best attorney I have ever worked with! He provides our firm with first rate counsel and always goes out of his way to make sure we have considered all aspects of an issue. Drew is not only a brilliant attorney, he is caring and thoughtful, and we value his dedication. We know we're in good hands with Drew.

Employment Case
Drew was amazing and did a lot of research in the beginning to advise me on whether I had a case and what my chances were of winning. He was very confident and did not back down and pushed them to settle the case. I could not have won this case without his knowledge and persistence. We won our case. I would use his services again in a heartbeat.

Drew is a spectacular attorney. His knowledge of employment law is impressive and thorough. Drew keeps up with the changing laws and always ensures that you have the right information to make your decisions. His advice is very professional and sound. I have used Drew a few times over my career and have been very pleased with the outcome. I would recommend Drew without hesitation.

Best Decision I Ever Made!
I came to Kinaga Law firm through a referral of another person who had used them. I had a complicated employment law issue and needed experts. Drew Alexis handled my case with with intercity and professionalism and was more concerned about me than any fee he may be getting. All phone calls were returned promptly and I was kept abreast about all developments and I believe both Drew and Patty negotiated a fair settle the for me and I would HIGHLY recommend Drew and Kinaga Law Furm to anyone needing help with an employment related issue!

Attorney for Rowdy Girl Sanctuary
Drew Alexis has been by far the best lawyer we as a non-profit could've ever dreamed of. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty to not only inform us but to teach us how to put our best foot forward legally. He guided our every step through the non profit legal paperwork and continues to consult with us on matters that crop up day to day regarding legalities pertaining to running and operating a farmed animal sanctuary. He always takes the time to hear me and gives me advice that I'm always confident to take. He's personable and highly professional all in the same breath. I would recommend him to anyone.
