Client Comments

"Kevin Pinegar is the lead attorney on our account. I have known Kevin for years and was pleased to engage him and his firm to represent our company. I knew him to be a person of integrity, but I have subsequently become acquainted with his legal expertise. He does not just quote the law, he studies it and finds the best way to use it to his client's advantage. He is not one to be obstructionist with the law, but understands how to help his clients find a way to comply with the law in the least burdensome way. As an example of his commitment to his clients, he has for years attended our board of directors meetings at no charge to the company just so he is up to speed on what is happening with us as a client. That shows extraordinary effort in support of a client. Kevin has always been sensitive to fees. During a recent downturn in our financial fortunes, Kevin helped by finding ways his firm could reduce their costs to us without reducing the level of service. They have shown that they are more than a full-service law firm, they are our legal partners. It is refreshing to have a law firm that is so personable and knowledgeable about our business. In fact, they have been proactive in recommending certain courses of actions to assist us in achieving our goals. Kevin did not wait until he was asked. With this kind of service and sensitivity, it is hard to imagine we would want to ever deal with any other firm. I believe it has been Kevin's personal touch that has made the difference. "
