Mr. Patel was absolutely amazing! I was stressed beyond belief and losing hope in my situation when I found him online. He was very kind, listened to everything I said, and truly cared about me as a client. He is so patient and helpful, and I felt so much better after just one conversation with him. He appeared for me in court, talked to the judge who treated me horribly, and got everything taken care of for me. If Mr. Patel has your back, don't worry about a thing! I'm so glad I hired him, and I'll actually be hiring him again very soon. I would recommend him to absolutely everyone!!! He turned my situation from 'completely hopeless' to 'worry free' in no time. I've told him once, and I'll tell him again, he is my hero!!!

Upon meeting Mr. Patel I felt like I was meeting a genuine person, not a salesperson trying to take my money. He answered all my questions before, during and after my case ended very patiently. He stays in touch with you and makes you feel secure. It wasn't fun being involved in the law, but I'm glad I found Mr. Patel.

Gonna keep it simple here, the guy has patience but carries himself in a dignified and confident way. I always felt like I was in good hands, despite being in a messed up situation. He is way well connected in court as well. All in all I got through the system with minimal stress, that was definitely a first for me...He definitely keeps it real!

I have worked with and against Kratu on criminal matters and have always come away impressed by his skills. Kratu truly cares about his clients and he is one of the few attorneys who truly listens to their wishes. I have seen Kratu in trial and this same engaging personality makes him a favorite of jurors. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice.
