When I first went to Mr. Underwood I wasn't sure I could afford an attorney and I was already on probation with two other cases. I was both nervous and irritated (about the whole situation I was in). Kent assured me that I had a great case and it it be with hiring him. In my head I was thinking "yea I've heard this before and no attorney has helped me, other than getting a plea bargain". After a day of thinking and looking around I hired Mr. Underwood and honestly it was one of my best decisions. He not only was helpful along with his assistant, but he got my case dismissed without haveing to go to trial!!
Most attorneys will sucker you out of money, but Kent Underwood is the best attorney I've ever had and worked with me better than any attorney I've ever had.

Kent was very professional and kept me informed through the whole process. He was easy to talk to and made things clear so I could understand them. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer he is one of the best.

I hired Mr. Underwood for my niece who had some legal issues related to her previous drug use several years ago. He was able to fully answer our questions and was able to show up for for a hearing the next morning, which was awesome. He listens, takes the time to explain things, but best of all, has a deep understanding of the criminal justice system, so the result from our hearing was dismissal of all charges. To have such a kind, knowledgable, honest and hard working attorney gave us a great deal of confidence as we went though the complicated and unknown legal system. Even though he was busy, Mr. Underwood waited to make sure the paperwork from the court was completed properly. This was fortunate, as there was an error which he was able to have corrected quickly. My niece and I are thankful to him as we realized it was important to get the best legal representation possible to minimize or eliminate criminal charges that would have affected her in terms of where she could live and work for many years in the future. I have worked with attorneys in my previous job and I did not find them to care as much about their clients, or as willing to work as hard as Mr. Underwood for the best possible outcome.
