I hired Edward Kroll for $6,000 on the spot after interviewing 4 other lawyers. I liked Kroll’s no nonsense attitude and he was always swift with his communication. Everything he told me to expect. and everything he suggested would happen - happened. I had a great outcome with a “slam dunk” case on the DA’s side, and I attribute that to Kroll’s ability to talk to the DA early in my case to explain my situation, as well as effectively talk to the judge at my case management hearing.
A piece of advice for those of you reading this review - remember that a lawyer is limited in what they can do for you. In most cases, going to trial is not preferred for anybody. YOU need to accept responsibility for yourself - especially if you are guilty - and be proactive in your defense. Get into treatment before your asked, go to meetings, start bettering your life and good things will come your way. *Of course this message applies to those of you with drug and alcohol related crimes and is under the premise that you are guilty of them.

I hired Mr. Kroll last year for a criminal case (Misdemeanors). His expertise was limited and he liked to use his past employment (District Attorney) as a selling point for his new firm. In all reality Mr. Kroll was not as experienced as he portrayed himself to be on the defensive side of things. His only advice to me was to not have the other party subpoenaed or testify. He took $6000 total. $3000 upfront and $3000 3 weeks before trial. He didn’t communicate well and was out of the country with family for weeks at a time and would have Mr. Johnson fill in for him. The trial was reset 4 times total and dragged out months after Mr. Kroll collected his money. Everything this attorney did, I could have done myself or a public defender could have done for nowhere near the cost. At the end of it all there wasn’t even a trial and the case was dismissed. Be prepared to get ripped off by this attorney. Check Mr. Kroll and Mr. Johnson’s trial records and previous cases. Trial is not something this firm is known for. They settle with damn near every case. Just do your research before using this firm. There is no reason to hire an attorney to make a plea deal for you. Just get a public defender if you want to roll over and take the states charges. There are a lot of attorneys in the Portland area that actually have results and take care of their clients.

Hiring Mr. Kroll as my attorney is one of the smartest decisions I’ve ever made. I came to Mr. Kroll with two very serious criminal charges. He thoroughly explained the legal process related to my case and was happy to answer all of my questions. His knowledge and expertise were reassuring throughout this stressful time. In the end, Mr. Kroll was able to secure the best possible outcome for my case. I can not speak highly enough of Mr. Kroll and his team!!

I was dealing with a serious case for two years and midway I had a consultation with Edward Kroll. I explained my case and my charges in which were very serious charges. Edward never gave me any false hope, he told me things the way they are and how they might go; If they were in my favor or not. From the first time I talked with him, he showed professionalism in the way he spoke and presented himself. I had many consultations with other attorneys and I knew Edward was the one that I wanted to hire. The day of the trial he brought his A-game I could tell he was nervous but confident. He knows what he is doing. He WON!! the case and thanks to him I’m free. All charges dropped and I have my clean record back. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. So if a potential client is searching for the best of the best then do not hesitate and give Edward Kroll a call. Thank you Edward for everything that you have done for me. My family and I will forever be greatful.

I hired Mr. Kroll a few years back following an arrest. He and his partner Mr. Johnson were extremely helpful and answered all my questions in detail. I immediately felt comfortable with them and hired them on the spot. Mr. Kroll walked with me into court and we walked out in less than 5 minutes with my charges dropped! I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Our Experience with Edward Kroll was very positive. With the possibility of an arrest looming over my sons head, we met with Mr. Kroll for a consult. Based on what we knew of this possible felony charge, prison was a likely outcome. After the consult it was decided that Edward, with all of his experience, was the one that could help us through this journey. His counseling and encouragement while being straightforward helped the family face whatever the court decided. With his help my son avoided jail/prison time and is now on probation.

I hired Edward Kroll to take over my case. I was absolutely nervous and had no idea what the process was on my case. Edward walked me through each step and gave me the best options and fought for an amazing plea deal on a serious case. I ended up paying only court fees and no probation or time.

Edward was on point from the start. He defended my younger brother in an Assault trial that could have ruined his future. He predicted everything that would happen and prepared a concise and detailed case that maintained the innocence of his client. He is experienced on both sides of criminal matters and does an excellent job supporting his clients and their families. Edward Kroll is the one you need for a proper defense. I would recommend him 100% of the time.

I hired Mr Kroll last year after facing an Assault 2 charge. Mr Kroll did an amazing job reducing the charge and working out a deal with the DA. He addressed my corcerns regarding possible prison time and felony expungement. Prior to hiring him I hired and fired the public pretender who made my charges worse and a defense attorney who had a terrible approach to resolving my case. I couldn't imagine any other attorney getting me better results considering the charge I was facing. I highly recommend Mr Kroll and I'm very grateful for his services.

We hired Edward for a Measure 11 case against our Son. Not knowing the Legal or Judicial System we really were overwhelmed with what to do. After meeting Edward for an initial consultation, my Husband, Son and I were completely in agreement that he was our Attorney.
Edward was amazing. He has the career background to know how each side works as well as the very important connections. The details on how he puts it, "Threading the Needles" was perfectly implemented. He is fine tuned from start to finish and leaves no detail unnoticed.
Hiring an Attorney is such an important investment, and Edward is worth his weight!
Our outcome could not have been better and we are very Thankful for our decision in hiring Ed Kroll~
