Successful, Knowledgeable & Caring Attorney Based on Mr. Kilfin's credentials (and that of his partner) as well as the information provided on his website, I decided to call for an initial review. From the moment I first talked with Mr. Kilfin I knew I had selected the right attorney. He listened carefully to everything I had to say and then fully explained the issues involved with my case. He explained each element of the charges, enumerated the specific points of the law which would impact my case, and ensured that I understood everything fully. He then outlined the measures he would take (in collaboration with his partner) to defend me if I chose to retain him as my attorney. Only after I had been given everything I needed to know was the issue of cost(s) mentioned...costs which I found very reasonable. I then requested an in-person meeting wherein he immediately made room for me on his schedule. He is very personable and knowledgeable and took as much time as I needed in order to be comfortable with my decision to retain his firm. Meeting personally with Mr. Kilfin only confirmed that I had made the right choice. During the time he represented me, I was kept informed of every action taken related to the case. More than just a client-attorney relationship, he expressed and demonstrated genuine concern for me. Due to his persuasive written arguments and personal contact with the prosecutor, the charges related to my case were dropped. I give my highest recommendation to Mr. Kilfin.
