"As a public school teacher, it's always important to let someone know when they do well. I am writing to thank Matt Willis for the exceptional service which he gave me in my recent legal matter. This is a first time for me in dealing with a legal issue, thankfully, and his handling of this lawsuit was superb. Right from the beginning, almost 2 years ago, we were well informed and kept abreast of all developments, the importance of keeping good records, and expectations of filing a lawsuit. I was guided very clearly through the legal system and his responses to questions or concerns was quick and timely. It was obvious from the beginning that he was competent and knowledgeable with a great deal of experience, and we knew we were in good hands. Paralegal Nikki Tolman was very helpful too and also provided us with excellent service. The lawsuit was finalized, and we were overall very pleased with the outcome. Thank you again."

A special thanks goes out to Eva Holmes and Ivy Fontaine for all of their help with organizing our meetings and answering any questions in preparation for our meeting with Attorney Dakin. If you are looking for a law firm to either advise you on your estate planning or help determine what is needed and necessary for your will, medical directives, etc., you won't find a better legal team to work with anywhere.

-The Fontaines, 6/16/21

"I went to Mr. Willis with 2 charges pending against me. I got a job promotion and I had exactly 1 month to reapply. Because of the pandemic I wasn’t able to get to court for almost a year to get these 2 cases cleared up. Mr. Willis got both cases dropped in a matter of 2 weeks and I GOT THE JOB! He is an excellent lawyer and I highly recommend him. He stayed in contact with me to let me know what was going on with the case and the progress of the case. Overall he was very professional and nice."
--Tracey, 6/16/21

"I would like to acknowledge appreciation for the KKC team with Attorney Stephen Sutton at the helm, with both Eva Holmes and Ivy Fontaine providing the most caring, compassionate and professional experience for a stressed-out client in need of the best legal team. They proved to be this and beyond my expectations. I cannot express in words the value of the services provided in such a gracious and timely manner addressing not just some of my legal needs for today but down the road for tomorrow as well. KKC provided me with a wealth of knowledge not acquired but so very much appreciated. When I met with Attorney Sutton I was most impressed that he explained to me not in legal terminology but plain and simple terms what legal issues needed to be addressed. I told him I got teary eyed to have the trust in place for my life, that legally I was clueless but that he and his staff jumped in. I am and will be eternally grateful to all at KKC for simply "being there." Please know the difference you make in the lives of others like me is: HUGE!" 
--R. Sapula, 5/14/21

As new farmers, the learning curve is steep and the legal issues can be overwhelming. We are so grateful for the professional help from KKC, in particular from attorney Bill Dakin. Not only did Bill answer all of our questions in depth but he also discussed other related issues that we were not aware of. He helped clear all our confusions and gave us invaluable suggestions going forward. Thank you!"
--V. K. 2/11/21

"Doug Manion provided exceptional services throughout my months of working with him. Court and the judicial processes can so incredibly be daunting; he ensured everything was handled smoothly, promptly and explained so professionally. As my case was with child custody, he got me EVERYTHING I was looking for. He made this overwhelming process so much easier for me and my family. He was a pleasure to work with; incredibly personable. Would 10/10 recommend to him to anyone, and have already referred friends and family to him. Thank you Doug!"

--R. Neault, 8/16/2020

"I have been a client of KKC since 2003, when my husband and I first made out our wills. We have always had an excellent  experience with this firm, first with Attorney Bill Dakin and most recently with Attorney Allison Poirier and her team, who have guided me every step of the way in dealing with my husband's estate and with updating my will and trust. Allison is a consummate professional. She has a gift for succinct and concise explanation. She never wastes time, but she also makes sure that her client has all of the information and advice s/he needs or wants. I feel very comfortable interacting with her and very confident placing my estate in her hands."
--B. Murphy, 7/30/2020

"We are very grateful that in 2008 our financial advisor recommended Attorney Jeffrey Winnick at KKC when we asked for a law firm to help us make a will, etc. We recently had need to make some updates to the documents and met with Attorney Stephen Sutton. He was extremely helpful in accomplishing that and he introduced us to another partner (Attorney Dorian Reiser Famiglietti) who would be able to assist us in a future land transaction. KKC is a law firm that can help with all problems. Grateful we are one of your clients."
--The Browns, 3/31/20

--B. Worlund, 1/3/2020

"Early in 2019, Chief Tom Snyder and I approached KKC through an initial meeting with Attorney Murphy. Our organization, the Willington Hill Fire Department was attempting to leverage a significant private fund source to purchase a piece of property that will hopefully be the location of a future public safety building to improve upon our already excellent services (since 1952). Kahan, Kerensky, and Capossela not only have us expert guidance, and services, but they offered us these services for no fee, recognizing that we are a legacy non-profit with limited resources. Without their generous offering, we simply could not have accomplished this complicated purchase. Immense thanks to the entire team at KKC Law."
--Michael Makuch, Lieutenant, Willington Hill Fire Department 10/30/2019

"This firm donated tens of thousands of dollars of pro bono work when the Willington Hill Fire Department was engaged in purchasing a property for a new firehouse. Joseph Mortelliti, the Attorney with whom I had contact, has an amazing work ethic. I returned home in the evening to find a voice-mail from him. At 8:30 I called the number, intending to leave a reply of his voice mail. To my surprise, Joe answered the phone from his office. He was still at his desk working on various zoning, financing, etc., issues regarding our purchase."
--Samuel C. Wheeler III, Secretary, Willington Hill Fire Department, 10/17/2019

"The job was completed without any problems in record time."
-E. Postles, Jr., 10/15/2019

--S. Basson, 10/9/2019

"I have used Attorney Doug Manion for a sale, purchase and refinance. I have found Attorney Manion and his paralegals to be thorough, professional and so easy to work with making the process run smoothly."
--G. Holmes, 10/2/2019

"I have used Attorney Matt Willis for a criminal matter involving my teenager. Matt got us all an awesome result and was so helpful! Attorney Willis is a wonderful attorney and so down to earth."
--E.K., 9/24/2019

Your legal services have been excellent."
