First of all, I want to thank Brittni Rivera for helping with my case. Ever since the first day she was working on my case, every time I asked for an update, she would respond quickly. Brittni handled my case with great professionalism and a great outcome. I would highly recommend working with Kriezelman Burton & Associates.
I can not recommend Kevin Raica and Justin Burton enough. They are the lawyers who get their job done. Super professional, organized and always on point!
