Charlie Crichton was the absolute gold standard for a personal injury lawyer. I would absolutely recommend him or anyone on staff at this law firm. The whole team has made this the best decision I ever made.

She was always so pleasant, cheerful and and hard working. She kept me up to date on everything every step of the Way. Steve, my Attourney, is a rock star as well! They worked hard on my case and I am very happy with the result! Thank you Steve and a very special thank you again to Kayla!

I couldn't be more pleased with Kidneigh & Kaufman. Mr. Chrichton handled my auto-related personal injury case. He was professional, very experienced, empathetic, and maintained excellent communication throughout the duration of my case. I could always make contact with him for questions or clarifications, he provided excellent guidance, and I always felt that he had my best interests at heart. His paralegal Alexa was absolutely amazing, often answering my emails and calls in short order, keeping track of every aspect of my case, and providing invaluable assistance with navigating the complexities of insurance claims and other details. I wholeheartedly recommend the firm, and will certainly be returning to them in the future for my legal needs.
