    After meeting with 3 different firms, I choose to work with Kevin McDonough. As a seller/landlord, We were dealing with a very complex issue with contract defaults (tenant) and vested interest. The situation itself was very sticky where law was concerned however Kevin and Krystle were able to facilitate a happy ending for both us and the tenant. Even after the process was settled, Kevin remained honest and repeatedly showed me what a great character he had. Highly recommend Kevin and Krystle for any situation you may be facing!
