Very helpful and very knowledgeable
Scott is officially my attorney, he did not sugar coat the situation and helped me make the best decision for my business as well as my employees... He gave me insights into things I really had no idea and now my exposure to unwelcome circumstances will be greatly diminshed

Look No Further
If you’re looking for an attorney, Scott Kron is your man! You will not find a more dedicated, detailed, competent advocate for your cause. I retained Scott in a dispute over the HOA permitting my neighbors' construction to impair my view and my privacy. Scott was wonderful to work with, in spite of the miserableness of being in litigation. Scott listens to your issues and absorbs them thoroughly. He effectively balances your contentions in the case while navigating the pitfalls of the legal system. He is infinitely patient, repeating information I had forgotten, clarifying legal terms and procedures. He remembers every detail I told him, even when my head is spinning in anger or upset, or his head is spinning with other cases and deadlines. His written briefs are succinct, well stated and effective. He was timely in every way, returning phone calls, submitting paperwork, contacting experts or opposing counsel, etc. And most importantly, his billing was more than fair, even generous. It was an incredible relief to find an attorney whom I could trust. Scott has integrity, is supportive, composed and confident. I could not have asked for better representation. THANK YOU SCOTT for saving me, emotionally and legally!

Scott is a true professional and he gets results!
My wife and I hired Scott to assist us when our condo's first floor was completely flooded by rain water during a big storm in 2017. Scott was highly instrumental in helping us to communicate, navigate, and expedite our way through the insurance company repair approval process, the condo reconstruction work with the HOA appointed General Contractor, and ultimately getting us reimbursed for all of our expenses and relocation costs due to the flood. Knowing that we had Scott (and Erika) on our team made a very, very stressful event more manageable and gave us a level of comfort we wouldn't have had otherwise. Scott's expertise, communication, advice and followup were all superior. The bottom line is that Scott and Erika definitely helped us to reach our desired resolution and outcome. We couldn't be happier, and we highly recommend Scott Kron!

Excellent service for a very reasonable price
I hired Scott Kron to review a business contract, he provided excellent service for a very reasonable price. I was in a pinch for time and he was able to meet the timeline without compromising quality. He was professional and spent additional time than that was agreed upon. While he had an opportunity to take more work from me and charge me for it he gave me advice on how I could do it myself and saved me a lot of money - great integrity and work ethic !! I would definitely hire him again and I would highly recommend him to other people.

In a league of his own . . .
From our initial discussion with Scott Kron, his legal expertise and professionalism were clearly evident. Over the series of months working with Scott, his compassion, attention to detail, and sense of fairness continued to impress us. The negative impact of a lawsuit on a family mattered to Scott. His knowledge of the law, intuition, and diligent efforts on our behalf gave us the confidence to fight for what was right. In the darker moments of dealing with a corrupt contractor, Scott Kron provided extremely competent counsel and composure which gave us a solid foundation to stand on during an emotional and difficult time. Anyone seeking legal counsel should know Scott Kron is in a distinguished league of his own!

Scott Kron is the best!
My experience with Scott Kron has been fantastic. While always remaining completely professional, Scott has a down to earth quality which makes working with him extremely comfortable. Scott approached our case with a passion to really understand our perspective while always remaining objective in his direction for us. He was also very generous and patient in giving his time during the preliminary process prior to taking on our case. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, Scott Kron is the best. I offer the most heartfelt compliment of all to Scott, by referring everyone I know in need of superior legal advice and action, to Scott Kron.

Very happy with the legal services
We recently switched our small construction business legal services over to Scott. We liked our last lawyer but the fees just kept going up and we were avoiding using the firm because it became just too cost prohibitive. Every contract we do is different and I was really afraid we were going to get ourselves into legal trouble. After looking at different legal reviews we decided to meet with Scott and he took plenty of time to answer all of our questions and scenarios. I find myself sending all of our contracts over to him to review and his response is very fast and the billing is very fair. I am really happy that we decided to switch and would recommend Scott Kron and his firm to anyone.

Spot on knowledge and great client manner!!!
I worked with Scott to understand the mechanics (pun intended) of mechanic's liens in California. Scott was fully knowledgeable - which is of course a prerequisite - but equally importantly was friendly, trustworthy, patient and spoke to the client's level. This was a complex matter that he synthesized efficiently and in a time effective manner. A great resource in the California market and I will be returning to Scott in the future for our company and our clients' needs.

Very Competent and Responsive
I found Scott based on his online response to a question I posted on Avvo regarding a business dispute I was involved in. After a brief conversation with him, I dropped my previous attorney and switched to his firm. Both Scott and Anne have proved instrumental in fighting my case and getting it to a fair settlement, despite working with very confrontational opposing counsel. Over the course of the two year dispute, Kron & Card was able to get the initial opposing counsel disqualified, one case dismissed, one TRO awarded, sanctions against opposing counsel, and successfully fought two adverse TROs. In addition to all this, they were able to work with the opposing party's revolving door of attorneys to get a settlement worked out. I would highly recommend Kron & Card for anyone who is looking for a firm that would rather resolve disputes than line their pockets.

Great Lawyer
I got a lawsuit because my RE agent posted a wrong info in MLS. I do not know any RE lawyer since I never got a lawsuit before. I checked online and saw that Scott got very good reviews so I decided to meet him for consultation. He was on time, friendly, and very smart. He always replied other parties' emails/requests right away. He is definitely the lawyer you want to go to.

Excellent small firm with wide breadth of experience
I highly recommend Scott Kron (Kron and Card). Scott and Anne are extremely client focused. They will work tirelessly on your behalf, provide clear and actionable advice, and represent you more than diligently. I have used them for family court matters, business litigation, settlement discussions and mediation. They have a wide breadth of experience, but when they don't know something ... rather than bluff their way through, they'll acknowledge it and then get support from fellow attorneys to figure it out. Their fees are very reasonable and their billing is extremely fair. I have been very pleased with their work and results. I will continue to use Kron and Card for my legal matters and I don't hesitate to recommend them to others.

Exceptional legal services
Qwest Inc has been a client of Kron and Assoc. for many years. Their level of expertise never ceases to amaze me. I feel very comfortable talking to Scott Kron and have always felt like i was in good hands. He has a great ability to get to the heart of the matter and has amazing intuition. So many times just consulting with Scott about my concerns has helped me avoid legal battles. In my opinion it is just as important to have a competent lawyer fight for you in court as well as keeping you out of court. That lawyer is Scott Kron.

Great, Knowledgable legal guidance
I've had the opportunity to work with Scott on two separate legal matters and have found him to be great to work with on both a personal and professional level. His knowledge, insights and effectiveness were instrumental in getting both matters to positive resolutions. He is a solutions focused lawyer who is truly putting the clients interest first in all he does.

Took my problem as solved it
I knew him as a friend before he was my attorney and I had a couple real estate legal issues of which he offered his help. Basically he took my problems and resolved them in a very short time with what I consider a fair rate. Friend or not, I would recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding Legal Service/Advise
Scott and his team handled a personal injury case for me and I could not have asked for better service. The case dealt with an HOA and he was able to negotiate a settlement in a timely manner. He always had a quick response to any of my questions or concerns and I felt that he was in control at all times. I knew the status of my case on a daily basis. My case was not a "big" dollar case but I always felt that I was getting the same attention as if it were a larger case. He has a complete understanding of the law especially California law. At the end of the case not only did I have a great attorney but also a friend. I would strongly recommend him if you need legal advise.

Great Experience
My company NeWave Construction Inc hired Mr. Kron's firm to yake us from a sole prop to a corporation. It was a great experience. I had in past used a company called legal zoom however little risky when you try to do things on the cheap when it's your livelihood. Working with Scott was a painless process and he had us in coprorated in no time we also had him write our home improvement contracts and legalize our company. Since his services I feel extremely confident knowing my paperwork is in order to sustain the growth we have had. Their form is extremely easy to communicate with, Mr kron replies to my emails very fast and is very to the point. Thanks and I highly recommend kron and card to any business that is looking to grow.
