Ten years ago Kyle set up our family Trust. Recently we met with Kyle to make sure everything was in order and to give him information on some asset changes. This was a great meeting which included by wife. Walked out of his office feeling so relieved and amazed a how well he had planned for everything. Told Kyle when we left that what he has done for us is much more valuable than his fee. Money well spent. Will definitely recommed Kyle to family and friend.

Kyle has taken care of my family's estate planning for over 10 years. Whenever I have a question or need something done, he is very prompt in getting back with me. His advice has been very good and even though I might only contact him every year or so, he always remembers what we have done in the past. I would highly recommend Kyle.

Mr. Krull was recommended to me several years ago by two different people who were already his clients. I am very happy that I took their advice. I definitely would and have recommended Mr. Krull to my friends. I found him to be very efficient. He didn't waste my time nor did her spend extra time on my concern that wasn't necessary in order to increase his fee. Also, he is a very pleasant person.

We met with Kyle 10 years ago for estate planning and have met with him twice since for follow up items. Kyle is an expert in his field who you can trust 100% to meet all estate planning needs. He is extremely knowledgeable on all the complexities of tax law and can think through all contingencies you may face. In addition, he is very personable and easy to talk to. Kyle is easy to recommend; you would be highly satsified.

Kyle's systematic approach to estate planning was exactly what we needed to help us determine how to best protect our blended family. He made what had been a very confusing process very straight forward and concise. And his fee structure is tiered so that you end up purchasing only what you really need. Highly recommended to all who have complex estate needs or a the need for just a simple will.

My parents are aging and have been distributing their estate among my siblings and me. My husband and I needed to set up a complete estate plan and Kyle was recommended to us. We are happy we took the advice and used him to help us with the planning. He was very good in explaining the different options and explaining why he would recommend the ones he did. He was always quick to respond to our email questions and quick to get our estate planning completed. We trust his expertise in estate planning and would recommend him to others.

Kyle did an amazing job of helping us create an estate plan that perfectly fit our family's needs. His expert guidance and counsel was invaluable as we journeyed through every aspect of planning for our children's future, our family as a whole, our business interests, and our charitable desires. He provided us peace of mind, sound counsel, and a solid plan for the future. We know we have a trusted advisor in Kyle and I can't recommend Kyle highly enough. He is simply the best at what we does!

Kyle first prepared an estate plan for us about ten years ago. We have gone back to him on two occasions to update the plan as needed. Kyle has been great to work with on each occasion. He is clearly knowledgeable on this subject and stays current on any changes or potential changes to the laws pertaining to estate planning. He is excellent at explaining, in a way that is easy for us to understand, how the estate laws work and how they could affect us.

Kyle did a great job in setting up our family trust. He asked detailed questions so that he could understand our situation and needs and make a recommendation and design a trust that made sense for our family. Kyle was patient and took time to explain the process and the design of the trust. After changes in our family, Kyle also prepared amendments (10 Years later) and changes to our trust. Again, Kyle took the time, kept us informed and was very responsive in follow-up questions that we ha

I have know Kyle Krull professionally for a few years and it wasn't until recently that I sought out his expertise. As a husband, and father of three children I needed to update our will(s) and family trust. We have had an existing will and trust for 11 years but felt that it needed to be updated. After discussing my intentions with Kyle he strongly urged me to seek the counsel of my previous attorney. This in my opinion was a very Nobel position for Kyle to take, who in this competitive world would send business away? After much thought and deliberation I approached Kyle again and explained to him why I wanted the counsel of a new expert. We agreed on terms and expectations and shortly there after Kyle presented a new plan that was very detailed and ultimately give me and my family the security that we were seeking. Thanks Kyle, I appreciate your honesty, candor, professionalism and thoroughness in preparing our new Estate Plan. Brent

Wow! My husband and I, just ordinary parents of several children, actually have a plan in place in the event something should happen to us! This is so comforting to know. I would have assumed that only the upper class could afford to make these types of legal documents; but Kyle made it affordable and pleasant to do. As our circumstances have changed, he has enabled us to keep the plans current. Even though we are not local to him, the service we received was convenient and efficient.

His integrity and intelligence are obvious. He is personable, has a nice sense of humor, and sizes up a family situation very quickly and accurately. He presents a number of options to be considered, and although he will make recommendations, he wants the estate plan to be what you choose.

After the death of my father, I helped my 87 year old mother review the trust documents the two of them had created in 1989. Like so many others, they never "maintained" or updated the trust to keep up with changes in the laws or changes in the family. After interviewing other attorneys, I arranged a meeting with Kyle where we reviewed the entire process of bringing Mom and Dad's trust up to date. He provided a very thorough Confidential Client Questionnaires and then, a personal consultation

Mr. Krull did the estate planning for me and my husband. Now that we are starting our own family we wanted to be sure that if anything should happen to us our families would know our wishes. He went over everything we needed to know clearly and explained the things that we wanted more information on. Everything is well organized so it is easy to find things when we need to review and will be easy for our families to find if the situation arose.

Very professional, knowledgeable, & efficient. Kyle uses a very organized systematic approach for estate planning. Knowing he is a practicing Christian was a major factor in our decision to contract with him for his services. We could not make these types of "eternal" decisions without knowing he had an understanding of the foundation on which we have built our lives and of which we hope to impart and convey to our heirs.

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

    Anonymity

    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
