Mr. Kruger is an outstanding family law attorney. He recently represented me and I couldn't be more pleased with his knowledge, professionalism, and expert advice. He responded quickly, spent time efficiently and set clear expectations on what to expect during the entire process. Rolf and his team were masterful at keeping the focus on what mattered in the context of the law and communicating my perspective in a way that was impactful.
Most importantly, I was confident that Mr. Kruger would go to bat for me on the issues that really mattered to me, wether he agreed with my perspective or not. He firmly offered advice but he also made it clear that ultimately the decisions were mine to make.
I highly recommend Mr. Kruger if you want a no-nonsense, expert family law attorney who is efficient, direct, responsive, professional and kind.

There were a few specific attributes I was looking for in an attorney whom I was going to hire to begin my divorce proceedings.
1. Attorney-Client relationship – an attorney who represents me and not just another divorce case, because every case is different, every partnership is unique, and a general rule is often not applicable.
What impressed me the most about Rolf was he dedicated his time and effort at the beginning of the case and attentively listened, studied, learned, and understood who his client was and the specific circumstances of her case in order to tailor the representation. I have to say it was not an easy task for him considering that he had to gain an understanding of my decision-making perspectives, which in my case wasn’t easy, and to top that I had begun with lots of emotional baggage, disputes, and frustrations. His talent learned through experience, has proven to him that dissolving a partnership is not solely about financial separation, more importantly, is also about emotional separation, he artfully use a combination of intelligence and empathy. Rolf’s most impressive traits is his continual attention, and prompt responses to always be available to protect his client, even if it meant protecting me from myself, which built confidence, trust, and professional courtesy.
2. Expertise – a veteran attorney experienced enough to have seen it all, and ready to change course as needed.
My case was like a roller coaster, facing obstacles at every turn. Rolf was experienced and skilled enough to weather the storms and remained firm, and his confidence was a strong anchor for me.
3. Ethical – although, it is natural to want to “win at any cost”, but what was important to me, to hire an attorney who follows the rules of professional conduct, and obtain the best results with intelligence, skill, proficiency, and ability to practice the law rather than through unethical means.
Although, Rolf is aggressive with a purpose, and fights hard when facing challenges, but he never lost the sight of the big picture – obtain the best results for his client through gaining the confidence of everyone involved – opposing counsel, the judge, and of course his client with his intelligence and skills.
4. Attorney’s budget – an attorney that knows when to spent the money and when to be considered about the budget.
Rolf, not only he never attempted to make my case about the money, but also he protected me from taking unreasonable risks and/or spending more money on the conflicts that had no merits. What moved me was his commitment to his client - he comforted me at times when I was concerned about sustaining my attorney’s budget, by ensuring that my representation will not be interrupted because of his fees. In addition, his law firm gives you a monthly report to where exactly the money was spent on.

Rolf knows a lot about family law and will make sure that you are not missing out on anything. He is very persistent with answering questions and his response time is EXCELLENT! My case had involved a very difficult and uncooperative/manipulative person but with Rolf's abilities he was able to get the job done and more. If you need someone who is reliable, knows their stuff, and won't let you get fooled, Rolf is the one for you!
