My wife and I have gone to Karl Green for advice and legal assistance on several occasions. His advice was always absolutely stellar, and our legal matters were expedited efficiently and with a thoroughness that anticipated and helped eliminate any possible future problems. One time a serious legal matter arose involving a close relative in another city. Karl took the time to consult his personal contacts, and he found out what that city's legal community considered were the two very best attorneys most capable of handling our particular case. So, it's evident that as a family we are not only grateful for his resolving various legal headaches but for helping to alleviate a major heartache as well. We've come to believe that Karl Green's personal compassion, generosity and integrity set him apart within a profession that has often been the butt of enumerable jokes concerning the greed and chicanery of some of its practitioners. In our opinion, he embodies the very best of all the personal as well as professional qualities that our family considers to be important in the choice of an outstanding attorney, and we are pleased to have an opportunity to say so.

Recently we had an opportunity to use this firms services for an accident. The laws and interactions of multiple insurance providers was very confusing and Karl was extremely supportive and helpful getting through that process. They answered all questions and guided us through a very stressful time and without their assistance I am sure we would not have had the positive outcome. They kept us informed at all times and always got back to us timely when we had questions. I hope I don't need their services again but would call them no matter what if I needed them in the future.
