Ken is my "go to" guy
Ken is a hardworking and dedicated attorney who is trustworthy and credible. He is a subject matter expert who understood what I requested, added creativity, created value and exceeded my expectations. Ken is thorough, detail-oriented and always available to answer questions. Ken delivers a tremendous amount of value for the fees he charges. It was a pleasure to work with Ken. Should the need arise, Ken is my "go to" guy and I strongly recommend his work.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
One of the best
I have used many attorneys in my life and Ken is one of the best. Not only is he very knowledgeable he cares about his clients and not just about making a buck. Being new to the area he was recommended to me. I wanted to talk to an attorney before I hired one and not have to pay a fee just to hear how great one is. He met with me showed me how he could help me and explained all the pros and cons. I hired him and was very happy with his work and how he cares. He was always quick to reply and was proactive with our communication. Most people now days you have constantly call them so it was refreshing that he takes the initiative and calls me. Thank you Ken

Came through in a pinch
I had an urgent and fast moving issue that I needed a second opinion on. Ken made time to provide me a second opinion and provide clarity on what my best course of action was in a very effective and efficient manner. He was caring, pragmatic and practical. He didn't tell me what I necessarily wanted to hear but instead took the time to understand the issues and provide very good advice, which is exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend speaking with him on family law matters (me work with Ken was Spousal Support related).

First Time Divorcee-Long drawn out divorce.
Ken is a very strong attorney. He has a friendly demeanor that makes it easy to work with him, yet at the same time you feel comfortable that he know exactly what he is doing. He explores all of the angles and always had the answers to any questions that I might have had. The divorce itself was long and drawn out having nothing to do with Ken. I was impressed that he stayed as in tune with the case for how long it went on. I would definitely recommend Ken to anyone needing his services.

Wise, Cautious and Effective
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience and hired Ken to handle a very complex post-divorce property dispute with an ex-spouse who was borderline. Ken did a very effective job of keeping me calm, unemotional and focused. He is one of the best attorneys I have ever encounterd.

Patient, Follows up, Great work product
I cannot say enough about Ken. I was referred to him by my cousin for some family law matters. He was extremely knowledgeable and easy to deal with. He was patient, followed up very well to calls and emails, and most of all his work product was great. What else would a client want?
