    -Chambers 2012

  • “We frequently call on Kristin to provide us with guidance on various employee situations, from hiring to firing and all that goes in between.  Not only is Kristin extremely knowledgeable in the employment law arena, but we appreciate the fact that Kristin does not take a “one size fits all” approach with her clients.  Instead, she took the time to learn and know our company, so that her legal advice is always rendered after having been tailored for the specific needs of and in consideration of the character that is Southeast Roofing’s alone.” 

    -Southeast Roofing and Construction, Inc.

  • “As a banker working out troubled loans, I really appreciated Keith's ability to help me with my legal issues, but I really valued his ability to help me understand the full spectrum of responses available to me as well as describe the pros and cons of each option. Keith's value as an attorney is amazing, but is far surpassed by his ability as a trusted advisor.”

    -Rebecca York, Mercantile Bank

  • "I am an employee of a large bank and responsible for a complex commercial real estate portfolio of problem loans and special assets.  I find Erich to be a most valuable resource and team member.  Erich is totally engaged in evaluating the bank's position related to the debt obligation(s), the collateral securing the debt and, when possible, offering alternative solutions that oftentimes lead to enhanced resolutions benefiting both the customer and the bank.  His proactive problem identification, problem prevention and problem solving skills make him my "go to" legal counsel."
