Testimonials

{

KJK guided us through a very difficult time...

in our lives and provided support that helped beyond the original request. The firm and advocate worked as a team to ensure a proper diagnosis, ETR and IEP. They were coordinated, communicative and confident. Their commitment to results and concern for our son was evident throughout the process.”

SUSAN STONE & KRISTINA SUPLER REPRESENTED OUR MALE COLLEGE FRESHMAN

against a false Title IX claim of non-consensual sexual intercourse. Current Title IX laws are strongly slanted in the accuser’s favor, and our son was denied due process by the university. This legal team expertly highlighted the accuser’s false accusations, while exposing the university’s many inconsistencies. They were there when we needed them – quick to take our phone calls or respond to our questions and concerns. Without their expert legal advice, our son would have likely been another silent and unfortunate victim of current Title IX university policies. We give Susan and Kristina the highest of recommendations!

Our Clients recieve the utmost protection
