Honest & ethical attorney

I worked in the legal field for over 10 years and it is rare to find such an honest and ethical attorney like Bernie Kempen. He did an outstanding job for me regarding custody and support.

Grateful mother

Bernie and his staff are A+! They always answered any questions I had, if not that day then that week. I was so thankful when Bernie sat next to me at the mediation and helped me to reveal other important info that I was not thinking of at the time because I was so nerves from the situation. Bernie was also alert when we were In front of the judge and pointed out things I didn’t even think of. His staff was very patient with me as well, even when I wanted them to change things they already worked on. I have gotten the outcome I was looking for with Bernie that I haven’t been on my own. I wish that I could always have Bernie by my side to help with my son’s situation, because he makes a big difference. I am truly thankful for him and his staff. From a mother that needed help when she doesn’t have any but from Bernie.
