Words From Clients

  • Kal and his associate, Fernando were both a pleasure to work with. They helped my company deal with a partner dispute. We settled out of court thanks to their patience and diligence. Very satisfied with the results. Their fees were very reasonable, a pleasure to work with.

    Jill McClabb
  • Our firm engaged Gleason & Koatz to help negotiate a settlement with a partner who was leaving under potentially acrimonious circumstances. Throughout the negotiations Kal Qubain, our attorney kept a strong command of the situation, driving negotiations with opposing counsel, helping the partners in our company understand our options and guiding us through the entire process in a clear and focused manner. Our settlement was fair — we were more than pleased with the outcome. So pleased, in fact, that we’ve decided to use Kal for other corporate matters. We now consider him an indispensable part of our team.
