Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Kratu knows everything there is to know about criminal defense. In his career as a public defender he handled most cases than other seasoned attorneys do in a lifetime. As an adversary he was tenacious, yet of very high character and very honest. As a colleague, if the case doesnt go to me, I hope it goes to him! You cannot go wrong with Kratu.
