  • Very courteous

    I spent 40+ years never having to need a lawyer and then I did something stupid and got arrested. I looked in the phone book and I called several lawyers including Mr. Stover. Mr. Stover was very courteous at our first meeting and he let me know that he deals with the "ugly" first and works from there. In my case he said the only ugly was getting arrested. At trial he was much better than the prosecutor and at the end of the trial, the judge found me not guilty. I know if I went with another attorney the result may have been different. I ...

  • He ended up getting my charges dismissed.

    I had a frivolous charge, misdemeanor. Ken explained my rights very clearly, set my mind at ease. He explained the worse case scenario, what he knew he could get me and that he would try for dismissal of charges. He never promised the miracles and I appreciated his straight up approach. He is well known in the system (for good reasons) and a great lawyer, he has been doing this a long time and you can tell. I was able to put my trust in him and relax. He ended up getting my charges dismissed. I'm very grateful cause this charge could have ...

  • If you want a lawyer who is actually on your side, you better call Ken!

    Ken was the second lawyer I had consulted regarding a drivers license issue. The first "lawyer" told me he could resolve my issue for a $7500 flat fee. Ken's consultation allowed me to resolve my issue with a money order of $135. I am very grateful that I called him and that he gave me great advice and did not attempt to take me for a wild ride. If you want a lawyer who is actually on your side, you better call Ken!

  • Great Job!

    I was arrested and charged with domestic abuse. Ken Stover was able get the charges dropped before the trial date. I couldn't be happier with the representation I received.
