    I would recommend Kent and his team to anyone who may be looking for a professional and aggressive attorney. Kent and his team helped my family through a very difficult time. If it weren't for Kent and his team, my family and I would have been devastated, financially and mentally. Kent took care of all of the behind scenes issues where I did not have to worry. My family and I are very thankful for the professionalism and sincere concern for myself and my family. I consider Kent a friend.

    I was giving this review a lot of thought. I wanted it to sound professional and well worded, but the truth is I am just a middle aged single mother that needed some help desperately and didn't know where to turn. Kent Berk was referred to me and I was very nervous my first time in the office. My nerves were calmed immediately upon meeting Mr. Berk in his beautiful and comfortable office. Kent was professional and honest with me. He listened to what I needed to say and then pointed me in the rig

    I am grateful to have the opportunity to recommend Kent Berk to anyone in need of a highly professional and tremendously knowledgeable trust/probate attorney. He is a skillful and aggressive courtroom litigator. His ethics and honesty are above reproach. At each turn, Kent allowed me to decide the course of action after counseling me on the options and potential costs. His fees have been extremely fair. I'd be happy to provide a personal testimony to anyone considering Kent or his firm.

    We were poorly represented by another firm in a case involving a termination of lease dispute. Mr. Berk and his firm had the original judgement against us reversed on appeal and also managed to collect all of our expenses.
