    Review for Kenneth F. Ginder by a Shareholder on 06/27/17 in Employee Benefits

    Ken is a consummate professional who is thoroughly familiar with all facets of benefits work. There is no attorney I would rather have on my side if I were faced with an IRS or DOL audit.

    Ken Ginder's command of employee benefits law is exceeded only by his ability to give practical, down-to-earth advice that solves problems. I had the great good fortune to work with Ken for several years, and he remains the standard against which I judge myself as an attorney. He is well-liked by his clients on both a personal and professional level, because he personifies what it means to be both a true a professional and a great person!
