I thought I was going to lose everything I had until that first court hearing in probate court. The judge immediately agreed with Ed’s arguments and the next week, Joe had the restraining order dismissed. I was seeing my kids again inside two weeks and could not have been any more pleased with their response. They made a very bad situation much easier to deal with. K.B.

The team at EKG recently represented us in a case and the entire process from beginning to end was seamless thanks to the team’s knowledge, professionalism, and proactivity. All my family’s questions and concerns were thoroughly answered by the partners and they were always to discuss things in person or via phone. It’s a rarity to find such a hands on and thoughtful team, and not surprisingly we had a successful outcome in our case. Nicholas G.

Our family would like to offer our experience with Attorney Edward Krippendorf, his associates and office staff. We would like to point out that we have no relationship to him or had any knowledge of this attorney prior to our need for one. My review will seem biased because “He is just that good” and we wanted to qualify this review.That being said we faced a serious crisis where an attorney was needed and Mr. Krippendorf fell in to our lap so to say.
