So thankful to have Kris as my lawyer! HIGHLY recommend.
I recently moved across the country to San Diego and started a business so getting a great/trusted lawyer was high on my priority list. Kris Mukherji was highly recommend to me by a friend and I'm so thankful we connected. I needed help setting up and S-Corporation for my business and someone to review a purchase agreement. As a first time business owner I had a lot of questions and Kris was always so quick to respond and make sure I understood everything. My S-corp filing was done with hardly any effort from me and was filed in no time. My purchase agreement review ended up being must more involved than we had anticipated. Unfortunately, the other attorneys we worked with weren't the most professional and organized but Kris stepped in and made sure everything in the purchase agreement was completed and done properly (even thought that wasn't his job to do). He went above and beyond to make sure that my business got started on the right foot and I am forever grateful. I would HIGHLY recommend Kris to anyone, especially business owners. I have full confidence that whatever I take on as business owner Kris will have my back each step of the way! Thank you again!

Incredible Business Attorney & Estate Planner
Kris has helped us with several different needs. He has done our estate plan for us. He helped with a business need through contract review and writing a few letters when our vendor had give us a piece of equipment that was constantly failing. He advised us on the business formation for an out-of-state LLC. Whenever something goes awry even my husband says "well, what does Kris say?" I trust him for all of our business questions.

A 10 Star Lawyer
Kris was recommended to us by our accountant and he is exactly what we needed to get our trust built and our affairs in order. Kris thoughtfully took the time to teach us what probate is and how our affairs would be handled if we passed away without a plan. He also brought up a lot of important aspects we didn't initially think about, like a special needs trust for a family member on government assistance, an advanced health directive with HIPPA authorization so the designated health agent can speak to the doctors about care, pour over wills and durable power of attorney's. He recommended to us an excellent California Professional Fiduciary to handle our trust after we pass so that family members don't have to argue or dispute anything. All and all, Kris is an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and personable professional. In the end, he created 186 pages of documents that will make sure our wishes outlive our existence. We are grateful he's our lawyer!

Super honest lawyer
Kris is a pretty special lawyer. He does what's right for the client rather than what's right for his pocket book. Spends the time to make sure everyone who comes in contact with him leaves with a positive experience.

Great job on our living trust and wills
A couple months ago, my wife and I decided we needed to get our wills in order and set up a living trust. My wife scoured Yelp and found that Kris Mukherji had glowing reviews and was located close to her office. We contacted Kris, set an appointment, and met up with him a couple weeks later. Our estate is a bit more complicated than some since my wife and I own a C corporation and one of our sons has a special needs trust, which has to be handled in a way that doesn't cause problems with the federal government. Long story short, Kris did a fabulous job for us -- creating all of our living trust and will documents, plus a variety of other documents that are necessary when dealing with an estate. Kris explained everything in great detail along the way and answered all our questions. In addition, he made sure that our corporation and our son's existing trust were handled appropriately. The final signing and notarizing was a breeze -- Kris has a well-oiled system in place to handle that part of the process. An easy 5 stars.

Trusted Professinoal
Highly recommend Kris Mukherji for comprehensive estate planning. After closing on a new home, my realtor introduced us to Kris Mukherji. He went above and beyond to set up our living trust, wills, durable power of attorney, medical directives, etc. He included a 1-year membership to DocuBank Emergency Card account that gives 24/7/365 instant access to our vital documents via a secure online vault. Kris Mukerji participates in the ARAG network. Trusted professional.

Best lawyer experience ever...
HI all, My wife and I just had our Living Trust and Wills redone from scratch by Kris. The whole experience was wonderful. He was helpful, courteous and professional. He made suggestions for changes and spent the time to explain why they were necessary, preventing us from making mistakes. Overall, a 5 Star experience.

Very professional and knowledgeable
I've had Kris as my business attorney for the last several years and he's been very helpful. This was my first business and I had never been through the process of selecting a lawyer let alone hiring one to draft up company policies, handbooks and other legal forms needed for business purposes. However, Kris made the process easy and helped walk me through. He was able to articulate what to expect from him and also how having my legal documents in line would help "CYA" if anything occurred. He's got tons of helpful information and great advice should you need it. It's great knowing you have someone like Kris on your side. I'd highly recommend his law office!

In my corner
Responsive and friendly, the voice of reason when you are trying to make business decisions that are affected by the law. On multiple occasions he has shed light on information or situations that I was not considering because I was in the heat of the moment. One such situation was helping me to understand and respond to the terms of a business purchase. The type of lawyer and the type of person you want in your corner.

Detailed to the Extreme (That's a good thing)
I have used several lawyers in my career from large firms with 100's of attorneys to small, multi-generational boutique firm with decades of experience, none have matched Kris for speed, accuracy and value. His work is accurate and timely, the two things you want in an attorney. He understands business and provided valuable insight to me. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Kris is knowledgeable with all aspects of business law and estate planning.  He was able to guide me through all the different options that are available and even took the time to look up probate laws in another state.  I would highly recommend Kris time and time again.

Genuinely interested in clients success!
I was referred to Kris by a friend for his business law expertise. My particular situation involved a business contract which if I had not consulted with Kris could have seriously hampered the future growth of my company. His professionalism and patience to explain all of the nuances in layman's terms was above and beyond what I expected from a lawyer. I highly recommend Kris for his legal expertise in business law and I'm glad to know he is looking out for my best interest. Thank you Kris!

Creating an entity
Kris and I have worked with many mutual clients and the feedback I receive is always positive. They talk about his responsiveness, professionalism, and knowledge of the law regarding their situation. I would highly recommend him when you are looking to create an entity or with an employee-employer related questions or issues.

It has been a pleasure to work with Mr. Mukherji. Our business decided to put Mr. Mukherji on retainer based on the following reasons: He is always reachable and prompt to respond. He is extremely knowledgeable and always provides additional resources to substantiate his points. He is unemotional in his determination for what is best for the company and how to keep us protected. We are very fortunate to work with Mr. Mukherji.
