Great service
Mr. Krieger provided excellent service helping my family. He was extremely professional and very straight forward about the outcome we could possibly expect. Long story short, his professionalism and talent awarded us the outcome we expected! I would not hesitate to utilize his services again for any legal matter.

Need help? He is your man
I had a situation with a subrogation claim from my apartment insurance. I had no idea what to do, how to proceed, or even if there was a chance to fight the claim. I searched online and there he was. He was able to take his time, review the subrogation claim, gave me a fighting chance at least. He was willing to assist and offer advice in any way possible. If you are ever in need of help, looking for a good lawyer who is willing to assist in the DMV area, I highly suggest giving him a call and you won't be disappointed.

We understand that finding the right attorney is critical and would welcome the opportunity to assess your situation, answer your questions, and explain our ability to help -- even if that means helping you find an attorney with more expertise related to your legal matter. We believe that everyone should have access to legal counsel.

We specialize in Residential Zoning, Consumer Protection Law, H-1B visa wage disputes, and Guardianship matters, but would be delighted to speak with you about any legal matter.

Each legal matter is unique and requires an individualized approach, specialized expertise, and an ability to adapt to external conditions. Whether your issue requires a few hours of our attention or a few years, we will always work to give you practical solutions and honest advice.

Practical Solutions
To determine the most practical solution, we help you analyze the following factors to determine the optimal way to proceed:
1) Harm you suffered (your damages);
2) Likelihood you will win (the merits of your case);
3) Cost to recover your damages (time, emotional, and financial); and
4) Likelihood of collecting your damages from the opposing party if you win.

Honest Advice
We expect you to rely on our experience, so you will always get an honest answer. If your case looks very promising, that is what we will tell you. If your case looks to be very challenging, that is what we will tell you. Most cases are somewhere in the middle, so we will help you assess your situation.

For Everyone
Too often, people forgo adequate legal counsel because they cannot find an appropriate counselor to help them navigate our legal system. No legal matter is trivial -- especially if this is your first substantial encounter with our legal system. If you think we may be able to assist you, please contact us. Even if you are fairly certain that your legal matter is outside of our practice areas, we are willing to help you find a qualified attorney.

Legal Answers
67 Questions Answered
Q. Landlord sent certified letter saying she sold the property and wants us to move out. Am only 1 1/2 years into 3yr lease
A: Selling a property is not a reason to terminate a lease unless there is a specific provision in the lease agreement, so I don't believe you have to leave. If you want to leave early, it sounds like the landlord is willing to agree to a release and maybe even pay you to leave, but if you want to stay that is your choice. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
Q. Can I kick out a person renting a room from my home? No contract, violent tendencies, attempted suicide, current on ren
A: Unfortunately, not. You can give notice and end the month to month tenancy and then file for eviction with the courts, but you can't simply change the locks. If you decide to hire a lawyer to help, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
Q. Can my landlord hold me responsible for paying rent until a replacement tenant is found?
A: No, if your lease ends, your obligation to pay rent ends too -- assuming you gave proper notice to end the lease if that's required.
