Testimonials

In addition to being one of the smartest individuals I know, Jack is extremely good at what he does. He has a terrific capacity to listen to my explanation of a business problem, process it and rephrase it, displaying an acute comprehension of the issue or problem. I’m very happy with all the legal work he and his firm do for my company.

August Cardona
Epicurean Management Co.

Being an attorney, I can tell you that there are many firms that can analyze the legal positions but few that can utilize that knowledge and bring about an extremely positive result for the client, which KB&G has done in its representation of us.

Thomas J. Cannon, III, Esq.
Flag Wharf Inc.

I was recommended to Michael by a partner at a large firm who realized that my then start-up company could not afford that firm’s fees. At KB&G I receive the expertise of a large firm delivered with a sensitivity to the realities of my budget. Michael helps guide me through the minefields that face young entrepreneurs.

I brought Harry in as General Counsel for several packaging companies which I ran or for which I consulted. He is my lawyer of choice. Harry not only is the preeminent deal lawyer I know, he is a business expert. He is the best business advisor I have in the world.

I tend to operate at 1,000 miles per hour and Michael somehow manages to keep up with me. I have never seen him lose his cool or his focus. His personalized involvement and caring is extremely refreshing and allows me the freedom to devote my energies to the creative aspects of my businesses.
