Fraser Thompson

I was very happy with kind, courteous, and professional attitude of every person I dealt with at KPA. Emily Banks was my lawyer and she helped me manage my simple and amicable divorce.  She never broke my confidence and I would strongly recommend her as a competent divorce attorney. All of my plans in this divorce were met with guidance and speed that the whole process made things go smooth and simple.  I don’t plan on getting married ever again, but I offer this recommendation to anyone going through a divorce.... “KPA is the way to go.” And I would put Emily Banks in a position of someone you need to call if you’re going to need a great lawyer. Thanks to KPA.... we both won in the divorce.

I am very happy with the help I got from KPA. Their pricing was fair and they didn't "nickel and dime" me. Emily Banks was professional and thorough and never made my questions feel trite. I highly recommend this firm.
