What Clients Say

Judy Albazi, President of Chase Products Co.

“Ken is my go-to-guy. We switched from a larger environmental law firm to work with him. He does more than save us about $100,000 a year in fees. Ken is knowledgeable, patient, explains the law in plain English, and never wastes my time.”

Harry S. True, President of Graham Paint & Varnish Co. Inc.

“Ken knows his business. He works effectively with other attorneys and the government to get things done. Not only is he honest and fair, but his first thought is for his clients—which is a rarity in the legal profession.”

Dave Carey, Vice President of Operations for W.R. Meadows, Inc.

“Ken knows insurance recovery law but also the intangibles—such as when a carrier will settle even though there’s no case law to compel this. He has worked for us around the country, finding funds we didn’t know were available to us.”
