Client Comments

"Ken Kreider is the point person for us at KMK and he provides the best counsel on non-profit corporate law. We sometimes have issues that come up outside the corporate law and Ken makes sure that we get in contact with others in KMK to get the answers. Ken's follow up is great even in the areas when we have had to talk to someone else in the firm."
