Highest Quality Legal Representation
I can’t say enough good about King & Jones. HIGHLY recommended. If you’re lucky enough for them to have time to take you as a client, you will be well served. I’d venture to say it’s the highest quality legal representation in the city for the most reasonable price, with no bureaucracy.
Best Results for their Clients
I am a California attorney and had the pleasure of being co-counsel with Peter King and Bill Jones in a complicated real estate case through a lengthy trial. In my over 30-years of practice, I have rarely met attorneys with the dedication and commitment Peter and Bill have towards the law and getting the best result for their clients. Their preparation, knowledge of the law and ability to advocate was truly impressive. I would have no hesitation in recommending King & Jones to anyone in need of legal assistance!
Nothing but admiration
I have nothing but admiration, respect & gratitude for the firm of Canel, King, & Jones. The entire team and in particular, Peter King, handled my case, a complicated suit alleging breach of fiduciary duty with a clear plan, meticulous research, thoughtful execution and concise, compelling arguments. I was consulted, challenged and expertly guided through all phases of the process.
Peter King and his firm, Canel, King & Jones, have represented me and several of my corporate entities for over thirty years. They are experienced litigators who fight aggressively to achieve the best possible outcome and protect their clients’ business interests. Their area of expertise is not limited to litigating partnership disputes, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud or corporate opportunity disputes. They are litigators and trial lawyers who are dedicated to aggressively fighting for the client. They know litigation is not about them, but about achieving the best outcome and they know how to do it.
Big Firm Quality
Strongly recommended. They quickly grasped my legal situation and provided me with well thought out options to consider at each decision point of my legal matter. They are smart, tough and has the experience to deal with complex legal matters. The attorneys at Canel, King and Jones, provide big firm quality, but the personal attention only available at a smaller practice. The personal relationship developed with me during my matter provided me with the confidence that they had my interests in mind.
