Outstand Legal representation
Ken is a wonderful family practice attorney. He stood by my side each time I appeared in Court during very difficult times in my life. He was always very encouraging, pleasant, and tough at times when he needed to be. He puts his clients first and I felt very well represented. He has a fantastic sense of humor and is always on your side. I recommend Ken Olena if you are in need of representation in family law matters.
