“Awhile back I came to Andrew Kurpanek seeking some legal advice. Immediately I was put at ease about the whole situation because he made it clear that he would walk me through the whole situation. It was very clear I was in the right hands. Mr. Kurpanek’s responsiveness was always almost immediate. Even late at night when I was stressing over the situation he made himself available. This man is extremely knowledgeable on a very wide range of law expertise. His resume doesn’t do him justice. He continually reached out to me to inform me of how the situation was developing. I will trust no one other than Andrew Kurpanek when it comes to law! He has gained my business for life with his trustworthiness, honesty, and exceptional law expertise. He always goes above and beyond what is required of him.” – Dustin, 2015
