    --I recommend James Kiebel.  I recently went through a heated divorce and Jim kept me calm and focused on my goals. There were times I felt like I was drowning and he kept my head above the water. At the end of the day I got what I needed and I did not have to break my bank. A pleasure doing business with you.


    Excellent divorce Attorney
    Sophia, 2/2/15
    --I recommend James Kiebel.  Mr. Kiebel walked me through my divorce. He was very attentive to my needs and made sure I was comfortable throughout the process. He was very upfront about the likely outcome and cost. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest attorney.

    Great Attorney at reasonable rates.

    I recommend James Kiebel.  I hired Mr. Kiebel to defend me on 3 different charges in 2 different counties(1 felony and 2 high misdemeanors). I was facing possibly up to 3 years in prison and I walked away with no jail time and only 6 months probation and some community service.  He was always on time for hearings, is knowledgeable with the law, and presented himself very well. Would definitely recommend James to anyone in a bad situation with the law.

    --Overall rating Excellent/Trustworthy, Excellent/Responsive, Excellent/Knowledgeable, Excellent/Kept me informed.  I recommend James Kiebel.  I hired James 6-12 months ago.  James handled my Criminal/Family matter.  I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.  When I found James I was somewhat skeptical as I had not had much luck with attorneys prior. However, I was in a sticky situation. James took control early on and assured me that the process would work if we followed it. I was very happy with my results. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

    Thank You Sir!!!!!
