Aggressive representation for an equitable solution
We will fight to get you the best possible resolution to your case. But we won’t let you get mired in a battle that might cost you more than you will gain. Our job is to work as hard as possible to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Sometimes that outcome needs to be a compromise in detail without compromising your ultimate goal.
We use technology that will help you
We save you time, energy and money by using electronic communication to the extent possible. We can email you drafts of documents, have you download forms and provide you with electronic files for your case. This saves you trips to our office, postage and it provides you with a way to organize your personal records.
And money is an issue
You may hesitate to contact an attorney fearing that you will not be able to control the cost of representation. At Kerstetter Law, we attempt to minimize your costs as much as possible by setting flat fees for certain services. For those services that are billed by the hour, we will not create work, or pursue imprudent objectives, in order to earn more fees.
Local roots a positive
When Brian began practicing law in 1999, he could have joined a large firm. Instead, he opened the Law Office of Brian Kerstetter to serve the people in the area he knew all of his life. When you come to Brian, he understands the context and culture of your problem. He knows the players in the local communities. He has the best perspective to guide you to a solution most likely to succeed. His fees are consistent with the economy and cost of living in Central Pennsylvania.
