“Ken Hallum was responsive and active in handling the issues of my case. He was really honest too, with the ups and downs, I never felt like he was too optimistic, or too negative, in the potential outcome of my case. And on a personal level, in communications and discussing options, he was very honest and perfectly ethical. He is an excellent attorney.” -Brandon
