How long have you been with Conrad Trosch and Kemmy, PA?

I joined the firm in 2007, so 12 years now.

What do you believe are the firm’s most marked characteristics?

Without a doubt, integrity and honesty. I can wake up each morning and know that I work with great people who want to do the right thing, no matter what.

You have worked with other law firms prior to CTK and have been a paralegal for over 20 years years now. What is something you believe is important for clients to know?

We are extremely focused on efficient communications with our clients. CTK adheres to a strict communication policy with our clients to ensure they get the information they need as quickly as possible.

What type of client is a great fit for CTK?

We are the perfect fit for someone looking for a law firm that they can stay with for all of their needs. You may have legal issues arise with a contractor when building your home. You or someone you know have suffered a personal injury that needs a skilled litigator. You have someone in a nursing home and there are concerns or have a friend seeking a strong divorce attorney. And of course, everyone needs a will devised to insure that their assets, large and small, go to their loved ones. We are in many ways a “lifestyle” law firm in this regard.
