“On behalf of my 95 year old mother Betty, we appreciate the wonderful legal advice and counsel of David Petter and Curnutt & Hafer, LLP. Mr. Petter helped her with an estate planning situation, and eased it with the needed legal documents. Ms. Heather Scalf came to mom’s home for her to sign the documents , because she was physically unable to come to your office.

She and Doug listened to us, and we felt we could trust your firm with everything, especially being a mom involving an injury to my child. You got us even more [in settlement] than we expected. Honestly, if I every need a lawyer again, I will call you, and I would recommend your firm to anyone for anything.”

“During my decades of being in the corporate world, I learned that if you HAVE to go to court, you need to get the best attorney that you could find. Kelly Curnutt was amazing and never missed a beat. I was extremely pleased with his approach, wisdom, intelligence, readiness, preparation, strategy, professionalism of his staff and every other aspect of how he handled the case. I found Mr. Curnutt to be a person with the highest morals and outstanding character. Since then, I have had several other legal battles. Mr. Curnutt introduced me to his partner, Doug Hafer and I found Mr. Hafer to be ‘cut from the same cloth.’ They both have helped me navigate through my legal matters with ease. I would recommend Curnutt & Hafer to everyone needing first class legal representation.”

– Clay B.

“I was first referred to Vicki by a friend of the family. Initially I had called to set up an appointment to discuss ramifications relating to a legal separation, but before our meeting I discovered additional information pertaining to my marriage that led me to file for divorce.

When we met, I was able to tell her what had led me to seek her counsel. She was kind and compassionate as she listened to my story and then discussed the options with me. Throughout the entire process, Vicki and her team were prompt in their responses to my questions and concerns and her ability to combine compassion with professionalism was very much appreciated.

Vicki had stated that if there was any money left in my retainer at the end of the process, she would refund it back to me. I will say that many people say this and yet somehow seem to use up all the resources so that a refund is never given. Vicki not only honored her word, but was able to get the check to me before Christmas (my divorce was finalized on the 18th).

I am so grateful to Vicki for making this process, as painful as it was, much easier than it could have been. She is a true testament to her profession!”

– M.S.

“Professional. Compassionate. Understanding. Great experience!”

– Brian Mountain

“Over the last year plus it has been my privilege and truly an honor to be represented by Kelly Curnutt, a good man and an outstanding attorney. My needs and expectations were exceeded along every step of this process. Business with the man himself was on point with each meeting, phone conversation, and email. Kelly took interest in my legal issue and in me personally. For these reasons my heart is forever grateful.

Then there is Kelly’s staff. Courteous, knowledgeable, efficient, and detail oriented people. An excellent group to continue working with as my case is coming to a close.

It is with thankfulness always and truly my pleasure to recommend Kelly Curnutt.”

We acknowledged your determination but most of all your hard work, along with your staff, have put into our mom’s case to have the truth be seen in court. You all showed your very best at all times. I would definitely recommend and refer your firm to friends and family!”

“When my wife and I were served on our corporation; I just stood quietly for 30 minutes because we had no idea what to do. We had been traveling, so we only had a day to file before a default judgement would be rendered against us. My brother referred us to Curnutt & Hafer, LLP. When we called, Kelly Curnutt quickly took our case and assigned Adam Alexander to it. Neither of us had never been in a courtroom, so Adam patiently led us step by step through the legal process and settled our issue with great knowledge, professionalism and patience. Not only did Adam save our corporation and the 14 years of hard work we have put into it, he kept us from losing everything we own, everything we have planned for our future and the future of our children. We can never say thank you enough.”

– Kyle Foster, Chief Executive Officer, FosTech Solutions Inc.

“I want to thank you again for everything you did for us in the suit against […] to get […] life insurance benefits. We are leaving in the morning to take [my daughter] to…(her dream school since her sophomore year in high school) to start her freshman year, and we could never be doing this without that settlement. Your interest in the case and your persistence paid off in ways we really couldn’t imagine at the time, but they produced something life-changing. We’ll always be grateful!”
