“On behalf of both XXXX and myself, I want to take a moment to say thank you. Trust is something that is not easily earned, and trust in an attorney is even more rare . Thank you for being a person and professional that I trust with the two most important people in my world – XXXX. I understand that the answers are not always easy and sometimes not what we want to hear. I know the process can be arduous. However, I appreciate having someone I/we trust as much as we trust you to guide us through challenging times and situations. Thank you for your honesty, sincerity, and integrity.

Reviews For Kendra

“Kendra Hagen is a great attorney. She is fast, in depth, incredibly knowledgeable and familiar with local courts, judges and procedures since she’s been practicing in Stearns and other counties in the area for a long time. She understood my complicated case and really did a lot to help, without providing unrealistic expectations. She worked with me directly, without relegating the case to paralegals, was very responsive and a perfect communicator, including communicating over the weekend when necessary. She is assertive without being aggressive.”

Reviews For Kim

Working with the Best

“Kim – You’re the greatest! Thank you, Thank you, Kim. I had the privilege to have one of the best. Thanks for believing in me.”

“Kim: I want to thank you for the excellent job you did during the XXXXXX mediation. I appreciated your approach and the ease of the process. The sign of a good mediation is when everyone walks away a little unhappy with the settlement and I believe that was the case here.”  – Insurance Company Senior Claims Executive

Difficult Divorce Mediation

“Kim did a great job on the mediation. I don’t think anyone else could have gotten it done. Thank you.”

Wrongful Death

“After my husband was killed by a careless and distracted driver, Kim and Vickie helped me navigate the confusing maze of following the criminal prosecution of the at-fault driver, followed by our prosecution of the civil-insurance claims. They were kind, considerate, informative and effective. They hired qualified experts and prepared and presented my wrongful death case for damages resulting from my husband’s death with diligence and great care. We were able to achieve a successful resolution of that case.

Although my husband is irreplaceable and my loss is forever, I know that I achieved a just outcome with the help of Kim, Vickie and the rest of the PCG staff.”

Death of a family member due to wrongful act of another

Kim, thank you so much for helping us with my case – You truly made our day much easier than we were anticipating! I appreciated your “straight forwardness,” your honesty and your humor!
You are very good at your job! But, to be good at your job, I honestly believe that starts with the person… and you are truly a good person!
Thanks again for all that you did. I am satisfied with the outcome!”
