Testimonials

  • Thank you Kripa
    I have worked with other lawyers, but I found Kripa to be very different from the rest. She took a lot of pains to understand my family's case, explained the whole process in detail; Always took our calls and if she wasn't available, called back promptly. Even if I called with silly questions, she took time to explain things to me and made me feel secure. Thank you Kripa, you were a wonderful lawyer and I am so grateful for everything you did for my family.
