Jason, Shelly and staff do SUPERB work!
They are efficient, knowledgeable, caring, professional, and very enjoyable to work with! I would recommend Jason as an attorney without a doubt! He was great to work with, and he was able to get me the results I had wanted! Thank you for an excellent job done!"
I’m completely satisfied with the outcome of my case.
This law firm is very experienced, very effective, and yet very personable when interacting with me throughout my nerve-wracking legal process. I would hire the Kohlmeyer and Hagen Law Firm again without hesitation. And, I have since recommended them to several friends and acquaintances.
I can't thank them enough!
I can’t speak highly enough of Mr. Kohlmeyer and his legal assistant Shelly. I felt like they gave my case the attention and time it needed, they were very responsive and honest with me the whole way through. I can’t thank them enough in getting me through one of the most difficult times of my life!
