I was impressed with all the hard work that was put in to my case and the way Stephanie just would not give up, always kept me up to date with even the smallest details. From day one I knew I was in good hands. Thank you Stephanie Service, words can not express all you have done for me……

Cassandra A. Drysdale-Crown represented me in a case against Berrien County Department of Health and Human Services. CPS mishandled my case and placed my name on the MI abuse registry. They had a licensed counselor practicing as a psychologist and making unjust claims. Attorney Drysdale-Crown had my name expunged from the registry. It is safe to say, that without the help of The Kronzek Firm, my career and life would have been ruined. I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to Cassandra A. Drysdale-Crown for her patience, kindness, professionalism, and compassion.

Very educated and updated on child custody laws. Kronzek and his staff went above and beyond to help my family in a rare and unique child custody case. I hired Kronzek a few years ago because my children refused to see their father. He traveled half way cross the state to represent them. Based on his knowledge of laws and willing to go the extra mile my kids don’t have to be forced to go. Kronzek and his staff are very professional and have a great working relationship with other court officials. Very respected law firm.

My Attorney Joshua Pease was very helpful in answering any questions I had, he was on time and prepared for court always and really knew what he was doing when it came to child protective services and the steps they want clients to take, he made sure to positively represent me and my case went smooth BC of him! I Highly recommend Joshua Pease and the Kronzek Firm.

Stephanie and Alesha is the best attorney and secretary ever. She was very very patient with me and very through with my case. She is understanding and realistic and reasonable. I would highly recommend her!

 –   Jessica on Facebook, 2017



Brandy was excellent in handling our request for expungement from Central Registry. When DHHS was not responding to our efforts, Brandy stepped in and had it resolved within a week. We can finally breathe again and get back to our lives.

  –   Heather on BirdEye, 2017



I have hired Stephanie service to represent me in both my custody case and a cps case against my husband and I !! Stephanie is amazing ! She will stay up til midnight if need be just to make sure she is fully prepared! The saying “communication is key” sure does apply to her !! I have contact with Stephanie at least once a day even if just to touch base and see if either one of us have had any updates on anything or have had any contact with anyone!

She will drive to your home if any type of investigation calls for cps or law enforcement needs to make a visit !! I would strongly recommend Stephanie Service to anyone! You will not be let down or disappointed!! Thank you so much for everything you have done and continue to do for my children and I ! It is greatly appreciated!!

 –   Jenay on Google, 2017



Stephanie Service was a great attorney throughout the process of my divorce. She was very knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

 –   Sarah on Facebook, 2017



Do not try to fight CPS with a court appointed attorney, they are paid next to nothing and don’t earn that. Brandy Thompson is well experienced in these matters and she will definitely make a huge difference in the outcome for you and your children.

  –   Steve on Google, 2017



I recently finalized my divorce and Stephanie Service was my Attorney. She was AMAZING, and WORTH EVERY PENNY! She helped me work through the legalities of a complex divorce with an unstable ex. In the end I walked away feeling GREAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone looking for a “QUALITY” Divorce Attorney!

 –   Amelia on Google, 2017



I cannot begin to describe how professional, diligent, and proactive John English was in handling my case! I sought representation months prior to finding John and was getting nowhere fast. I decided to make a change and found John English at The Kronzek Firm and couldn’t be happier.

He was extremely fast and proactive and had my case cleared in record time in comparison to my previous representation. John English is someone I would hands down recommend and after meeting him found that he is a down to earth loving father which just adds to his legal prowess. Thank you so much John and all of your assistants at the firm!!!

 –   Anthony on Facebook, 2017



I was taken back by the level of service that my team provided me. The knowledge and care they took on my behalf was second to none. Even those not on my team bent over backwards to assist me with any questions or concerns or requests that I had.

If I ever have any problems with legal issues I will be coming back here first chance. Because I know that this group will be in my corner like nobody else. Stephanie Service was a awesome lawyer and I would happily recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer.

–   Kenneth on Google, 2017



They are great with everyone!

 –   Roy on Facebook, 2017



Stephanie Service is the best lawyer I’ve had.

 –   Staci on Google, 2017



I was looking for someone to give me peace of mind regarding my particular matter, and someone who would be reasonable, knowledgeable, confident, but also temper expectations. I had a brief search online and luckily came across the Kronzek firm, and had Stephanie Service represent me. She fit all these criteria, and additionally, was well-prepared, thorough, available, and professional every step of the way.

She kept me informed, took the time to get to know me and the context behind my case, and formulated a solid plan for my court date. She was also very down to earth, which is incredibly important to easing any anxieties about a legal matter. Would strongly recommend her to anyone dealing with a family/domestic legal problem.

 –   Christopher on Facebook, 2017



I hired Stephanie Service to handle what I thought was going to be a messy divorce. Not only was Stephanie, and Alesha, great to deal with, but they answered every question I had, handled the case very professionally, and even worked hard to find another judge even it looked like the case was going to get postponed with less than an hour before the scheduled court time. Thanks for all the help.

 –   Shelby on Google, 2017



I’ve probably only left two or three reviews in my life, it takes something or someone exceptional for me to do this. Charles Kronzek is a perfect example of someone exceptional. Charles has helped our family numerous times over the last eight years. He is beyond generous with his time, seems to work all hours of the day, and is willing to explain every potential outcome no matter how many times I ask.

While calls to legal counsel are often some of the most stressful times in life, I have never once left his office or a call with him feeling uncertain about the best possible path forward. You have earned our business many times over. Thank you Charles.

–   John on Facebook, 2017



I would like to personally recommend Stephanie Service as a class 1 defense attorney. She is very knowledgeable of the law in family and also in cps. She is very kind but at the same time means business. She stands up for right and keeps pushing issues when most attorneys would just give in and back off. Legally, she follows all rules in the practice. Yes- the cost is pricey but that’s why attorneys go through so much school and training ( This firm including Attorney Service is worth the cost) AAAAAA++++++++ rating.

  –   Luke on Google, 2017



Great upbeat, kind personalities with your best interest being primary. Excellent firm to work with. There prompt service was much appreciated!

–   Sophia and Marissa on Facebook, 2017



I had Stephanie as my lawyer. She gave me the best possible representation for my case. She communicated with me very well through the whole process. She represent me well and made every possible effort to ensure the success of my case. I would highly recommend her as well as the whole Kronzek Firm.

 –   Katherine on Facebook, 2017



I could not be happier with the help & guidance that I received while working with Brandy & her team! Brandy is thorough & to the point. She listened to my wants, needs & concerns. She was honest & clear with her responses (even when she knew I might not like her answer). I would recommend Brandy & her team to anyone looking for a no nonsense team that has the ability to be sharp, professional & yet compassionate!

–   Jennifer on Avvo, 2016



My husband and I highly recommend Attorney Brandy Thompson. She’s extremely knowledgeable and personable.

–   Heather on Google, 2016



I was researching trying to find the best defense attorney for my son after he received the maximum sentence for first offense OWVI. The initial attorney I hired was not helpful and I wanted to find an attorney who knew what he was doing. I had several referrals however after googling, I found John English. After speaking to him I knew he was the one to trust. He’s very knowledgeable, thorough and explanatory.

He does not leave any question unanswered and is a good listener. He doesn’t sugar coat anything; however, gets the job done. John was able to get our motion granted and his hard work paid off. He is a breath of fresh air, has a wonderful sense of humor and has great passion for his work. Thank you so much! You’re the best!

 –   Maggie on Facebook, 2016



Stephanie Service is one of the best lawyer in the field. She is very well informed and is always there for you like family. She helped me understand everything with ease and patience. Always answered my questions and concerns promptly and thoroughly with so much detail. She is a wonderful person and very pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her

 –   Javeria on Avvo, 2016



I retained John English of The Kronzek Firm for my defense on a misdemeanor drug charge. Since I had no criminal history, I was eligible for section 7411 in Michigan. John handled my case and not only got me section 7411, but my probation was limited to 90 days with the stipulation that it would end as soon I passed a drug test.

Since John had advised me to avoid all drugs including alcohol, I tested clean and was immediately released from probation. My probation lasted about 15 minutes. I was very pleased and would recommend this law firm as well as John English for your defense. Thanks John.

 –   Glenn on Avvo, 2016



Great communication and very knowledgeable!

 –   Lindsay on BirdEye, 2016



I went through my child custody case with open eyes believing that the courts would see the truth, but I was wrong. As a college graduate and current masters student I thought I could handle this on my own. I tried everything I could, filed motions, co-parented, begged for explanations and I got nothing. I felt lost, stressed, helpless, alone and backed into a corner.

So after a heartbreaking moment I finally decided to seek help and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. When I met Stephanie she changed everything for me. She helped me in ways I never thought was possible going above and beyond what I ever expected a lawyer to do in order help me feel safe.

Although I’m still in the process of my case I can say with an open heart and clear mind that having her assistance has changed my life. She puts my daughter first and I will be forever grateful for that. For the first time since this whole court mess started I finally feel like I can breath again and it’s amazing. I would highly suggest this brilliant woman to anyone. So if you’re considering getting a lawyer, or considering this firm…do it. They will absolutely help you in any way they can. I know they did for me.

 –   Malinda on Google, 2016



Stephanie quickly won our case, so well handled that the opposing attorney didn’t even recommend that her client object and bother going back to court. She was well prepared and pleasant to work with.

 –   Krysten on Avvo, 2016



I retained the services of Stephanie Service at the 11th hour in my divorce case. She told me upfront that it would be a battle. But going to court with her by my side I was comfortable and confident. We “won” it first battle in court. She did a wonderful job.

With the help of her assistant, Alesha, they helped me through every step of my case and never gave up. They both very positive and easy to get ahold of when I needed to discuss something. I have already recommended them to a friend. And would recommend them to anyone that needs a family law attorney.

 –   Scott on Google, 2016



I would definitely recommend Stephanie Service as your lawyer. She is comes well prepared and will work very hard for you. From our 1st meeting my wife and I knew she was the right choice for my case. She is also very knowledgeable lawyer. Thanks again Stephanie again for getting my PPO terminated.

 –   Joe on Facebook, 2016



I retained Brandy Thompson after being served with a change of custody motion. On the day of the hearing she was there hours early to review my case and prepare me for my hearing. Brandy made me feel like I was not just a paycheck. She sat by me while the other cases were being heard and took notes while the other attorneys sat together away from their clients.

She listened like a friend not like an attorney. My case was dismissed thanks to her knowledge of how the law and how the system works. I would call on Brandy Thompson for any legal issues that i at have in the future and would refer her to anyone that asks.

 –   Robbia on Avvo, 2016



I found Brandy to be extremely professional and available. She prepared me well and had the best interests of me and my child in mind. She listened and rallied around my cause, but at the same time, kept expectations realistic. I would wholeheartedly recommend her as counsel.

 –   Michael on Google, 2016



Brandy was well-prepared, responsive and never over-promised. She explained things thoroughly and encouraged questions and compromise. She will care about you and your problem.

 –   Jennifer on BirdEye, 2016



Brandy is very caring and compassionate to her clients. Brandy helped my family through one of the toughest times and I will forever be grateful for her hard work and dedication.

–   Nicole on Avvo, 2015



I’m wishing I could give more stars! Ms. Service was very attentive and she made getting off of the registry for me a pretty easy situation. All I had to do was let her work her magic. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

 –   Blake on Avvo, 2015



I was very pleased with how my attorney, Brandy Thompson, handled my case. She did an amazing job. She was very organized and on top of everything. I would recommend Brandy to anyone who was in a similar situation. She is an amazing attorney.

 –   Chelsea on Google, 2015



Ms. Thompson has been our attorney for almost two years. She has handled our unique case with respect and diligence. We are very happy with her services.

–   Debra on Avvo, 2015



Stephanie Service and her team are top notch.
From the initial phone call to the successful resolution of my case
I was impressed with the prompt response time to every phone message or email. She thoroughly and patiently explained the laws and procedures
and then proactively worked on my behalf.
Stephanie and her team brought me peace of mind knowing they were on the job. I highly recommend her.

 –   Chuck on Avvo, 2015



Nobody really ever wants to navigate through the court system to resolve a family dispute. Or pay the expense of doing so. Sometimes it’s just necessary. I made the decision to bite the bullet and hire a good attorney rather than a budget attorney. I have no regrets.

Chuck Kronzek is an excellent and experienced attorney who is well respected by his peers, as well as judges. That goes a long way in achieving success. We went on a very long and extremely frustrating journey to accomplish what we set out to do.

My legal counsel definitely “counseled” me along the way. But always left the decisions up to me. My phone calls and emails were always returned within hours. He and his paralegal Kim, always made me feel like a high priority. Top notch professionals!

 –   Rich on Google, 2015



Brandy impressed me right away with her factual approach to my child custody case. She definitely knows the field well and never sugar coated things for me. I did feel lost many times, since this was all new to me, but looking back I kind of want to kick myself and remind me to trust Brandy. I felt uninformed a few times throughout the process, which was hard for me, but in spite of those moments, I did get great positive results in my case. She proved without a doubt in the end that she knows the system and she’s an attorney to be reckoned with.

Opposing counsel was actually shaking. My advice to potential clients is to definitely use Brandy for your child custody case, and to trust that she is giving you the best advice for your situation, and providing you the most quality representation you can buy. She is also a very busy professional, but she was always willing to sit down with me and answer my questions if I asked to. If I need further alterations to my custody agreement in the future, I certainly hope that Brandy will represent me again.

 –   Bonnie on Avvo, 2015



I had the pleasure of working with John English on a PPO filed against me by my former Supervisor. Mr. English was quite knowledgeable in this particular field of law and was tenacious in our battle against the Plaintiff. I would recommend his legal services at anytime, for anyone seeking a seasoned Attorney in trial law. He stood up for me and spoke eloquently on my behalf. I will never forget John M. English, Esq.

 –   Fred on Avvo, 2015



Stephanie proved to be superbly professional in her demeanor, but in telephone and email correspondence she demonstrated a very real sense of personal commitment. I retained her for a family member’s case; I live out of state and I needed someone to advocate the family’s concern to our loved one, but to also fill the role of advocate for the defendant. She exceeded my expectations in every way.

I very much appreciate and respect her knowledge of the law but also her ability to interject the “story” behind the alcohol/drug offense defendant, and then present a truthful plan of rehabilitation for the client (my sister). In-fact, while she made absolutely no promises or predictions as to the ruling–the outcome for my sister and in-turn for all of us–was surprisingly better than we could have hoped for.

When asked her impression of Stephanie, the first word my sister used is “Compassionate,” quickly followed by the same descriptive characteristics detailed above.

 –   Patrick on Google, 2015



Don’t even know where to start. Beyond thankful for Mr Kronzek. Not only is he the only attorney I will ever use but he is also a friend. Thank u … seriously.

–   Jen on Avvo, 2014



We chose The Kronzek Firm as our representatives in the early stages of a child abuse case with CPS. The firm offered us the aggressive protection we needed. I highly recommend using The Kronzek Firm for CPS issues. The earlier you get the firm involved, the better off you’ll be. Protecting our children from CPS was worth every penny.

 –   Jason on Google, 2014



Brandy Thompson handled my international divorce case, covering custody, in a thorough, professional, and expeditious manner. I received the entire outcome I desired.

 –   Michael on Google, 2014



I have used Brandy for several personal matters and have found her to be very professional. She got the results I was looking for each time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal services.

 –   Marci on Avvo, 2014



After my previous attorney passed away, I hired Chuck to move forward with my parenting time modification. He helped me through the process. He even tried to save me attorney fees by suggesting that my ex and I work out the issues with a parenting time coordinator.

Well, that didn’t get me anywhere and he did not agree with anything that the coordinator came up with, so he filed a motion on my behalf. I ended up getting more time with my boys that my ex couldn’t be there for. Thank you Chuck! I will for sure hire you again if I have any future issues!!

 –   Erica on Avvo, 2014



My experience was with Brandy Thompson. I found her to be thorough and professional. She handled every issue that came up quickly, and the outcome far exceeded what I wanted or even hoped for. I highly recommend if you are in need of attorney, you contact her first!

 –   Mary on Google, 2014



I highly recommend Stephanie Service, she is straightforward and honest (which you don’t find in a lot of lawyers now a days) and she’s very good at her job. If you want a lawyer that will stand up and fight for you Stephanie Service is your lawyer.

 –   Eric on Avvo, 2014



From the first meeting with Ms. Drysdale-Crown, it was not only the professionalism and knowledge, but the sincerity and sense of feeling I was understood. I was always treated with respect with each and every question or concern I had. No matter how many times I emailed or called the office, I always received prompt response and was made to feel my questions were important and never made to feel that I was wasting her time.

 –   Evelyn on Avvo, 2014



I have been very impressed by The Kronzek Firm in my experiences with them. Their professionalism and courtesy goes above and beyond the norm. Next time I need help with the law, I know I can rely on Chuck to help me out.

 –   Jeffrey on Google, 2014



Stephanie just finished settling my divorce case. She did an excellent job handling every aspect of the case. When I came to her looking for an attorney, not knowing what was to come, angry and upset, she did excellent job reassuring me that everything was going to be okay. She explained the divorce process, what I could expect over the next few months and outlined the possible outcomes. She was well aware of my financial situation and very limited expendable income and did a great job doing whatever she could to keep my costs down. At times she would even remind me that she is happy to pursue any direction I wanted to go, but the cost involved may not outweigh the outcome.

She did an excellent job letting me know where I could do things myself rather than paying the firm to do it as well as provided assistance to make sure I did it in the proper manner. And what was most impressive is a meeting with the ex and her lawyer. Stephanie actually had her phone out pulling up case law and verifying it to make sure the ex and her lawyer didn’t get something over on me. VERY IMPRESSIVE!. If you want an excellent attorney who isn’t going to tell you what you want to hear just to increase the cost for the firm’s benefit, call Stephanie Service.

–   Brian on Avvo, 2014



Brandy handled the divorce case with a high level of professionalism. The office staff also did a great job.

 –   Craig on Avvo, 2014



I worked with Stephanie Service on my case with CPS and the Macomb County Police dept. She was phenomenal throughout the entire process. Honestly, I was very scared being innocent and having to feel like a criminal. This was my first time dealing with such situation and was in a panic. She was very informative, kept me in the loop, and was very understanding of my situation.

Also, she didn’t pressure me to do anything I didn’t feel comfortable with and gave me very wise advice. In the end, what seemed like an eternity ended well. All charges were dropped and I was cleared. Thank you Stephanie for helping my family and I.

 –   Chouchee on Google, 2014



We picked The Kronzek Firm to represent us in an old case, and through their hard work and dedication, the case was dismissed and we were able to keep our family together. I would recommend Mr. English’s representation to anyone in the area! They were very professional and respectful, a successful choice!

  –   Scott and Sarah on Avvo, 2014



In a nutshell, Cassandra was amazing. She is knowledgeable, has an excellent reputation/relationships in the courtroom; highly professional, detail-oriented, organized, and prepared. She was also very caring and kind. She took the time each step in the process to fully disclose the procedures, answer our questions and get us prepared.

We felt confident from the first meeting that she was the woman to get the job done, and she did, without a hitch. We feel truly blessed to have had her represent us during this emotionally difficult time in our lives. She is OUTSTANDING – a true credit to the legal profession. We would highly recommend her.

 –   Jim on Avvo, 2013



When I first called Charles he gave me the honest opinion I needed. We met the same day and I hired him to take over my divorce case from another lawyer. In 3 months he got me what my previous lawyer did not get me after a year. Charles is the best.
