Client Reviews

“I was involved in a car accident and turned to Jim Knipe for his legal expertise. I’m incredibly thankful I chose him to represent me in my personal injury case, as everything was handled seamlessly.

I was struck by a car that ran a red light while I was crossing an intersection, resulting in severe back pain. Jim ensured I received proper treatment by connecting me with a chiropractor. Additionally, he skillfully navigated dealings with the insurance company to ensure I received fair compensation for my damages.

If you’re in search of an attorney who pays meticulous attention to detail and prioritizes the time you deserve, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reaching out to Jim Knipe. Jim and his team at MGKB Law will take excellent care of you.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Client C

“Jim is an excellent and ethical attorney with a tremendous understanding of the law. He was able to provide me with a defense that was the absolute truth. His knowledge of the information surrounding my case provided for a not guilty ruling from the judge. I’d recommend him to anyone!”
