They were solid from start to finish. When I got a speeding ticket that put my license at risk, I thought I'd give them a try. They had an initial consultation set up for me that afternoon and made it very easy to retain their services. One of the best parts of working with them is that fact they allowed me to pay them over the course of three (3) months. This helped cash flow stay consistent while they did what they said and got it dropped. I recommend Kurtz & Blum to anyone who is tied up with speeding violations.

I know a lot of people do not take the time to tell what happened to them and their case, but seeing as though Kurtz & Blum has such good ratings, I was really surprised. I had a speeding charge on 540 going 90 & 65. I called them up they said they would take care of it, Id probably have to do community service & driving classes and of course pay the cost and court fees. Well by the time they had asked me to schedule a class, the classes were full, meaning I only could take the class AFTER my court date. Mind you they gave me the class info maybe 2 weeks before my court date. So I could not take the classes. I started doing my community service, I only needed 15 hours. I could only finish 12 hours because of my work schedule is made 3 weeks in advance & had to have it done in a week and a half. Even after doing 12 hours on my court date, they never showed the DA that I had tried to do what was asked, they never even showed them the 12 hours that I finished. I just wasted my time, they never told the DA that the driving classes were full & that I would take them afterwards or I dont know, but they are MY ATTORNEY! They should have at least had it continued or something....So after spending HUNDREDS of dollars on this HIGHLY ADVERTISED BS, Just so they can get your money...I now have a CARELESS AND RECKLESS CHARGE on my driving record. Thank you so much for not doing your job, taking all of my money, wasting my time, hope and trust in something that you couldnt even help me with.

Response from the owner - a week ago
IMPORTANT! Please read this now - Kurtz & Blum has no record of representing Brandice Fields in any case at any time. In addition, we have no record of representing any client by any name with facts similar to those stated in this review (and we keep very good records). At first we thought this might be a simple misunderstanding. In an effort to verify the statements above we sent a message to the reviewer on March 16, 2014 politely requesting they contact us. When we did not receive a reply, we sent a follow-up message on March 20, 2014. At this time we have never received a response from this user. Therefore, we believe this review is either completely fabricated or a gross misrepresentation of the facts. As one of the largest and oldest criminal defense firms in Raleigh, we believe that the trust our clients place in us is the single most important part of our practice. Each year we help thousands of hard-working Raleigh folks successfully resolve their legal issues. In every case, we are dedicated to open and honest communication to minimize the chances of an undesirable outcome. The number of positive reviews from real people listed here are a testament to our hard work over the past 16 years. We certainly are not perfect and sometimes things do not go as we would like, but we take our reputation very seriously and the unsubstantiated claims of this review are obviously very concerning. We respectfully request that this user contact our office at 919-832-7700 to discuss this review. Without a response we shall assume that the statements above do not represent the facts and are a malicious attempt to harm the reputation of our law firm.

Through several difficult times in the past several years, from divorce to minor traffic infractions and even more serious criminal offenses charged against close friends of mine the offices of Kurtz and Blum have been a rock in the legal arena. The knowledge, kindness, and professionalism that the attorneys and their office staff have consistently displayed are unprecedented in the field. Any time someone I care about or myself needs legal assistance I do not hesitate to turn the Kurtz and Blum to represent me or my loved ones as I know and have full confidence that they will effectively get the job done and keep me or my loved ones fully informed of all facets of the case. They take a specific amount of care in providing their clients with all information regarding their cases while explaining fully exactly what is happening as to set the client at ease. For each case I have used this office for or witnessed others that have used them they have consistently provided a phenomenal outcome often times far exceeding the expected results. I would and do recommend this office for any legal needs you may have as they are the front runner in the Wake county legal arena. When I had an issue in another county, though for a price, the office KINDLY offered to represent me outside of their general working county if it were to make me feel more comfortable. This is the type of service one needs during a stressful time of legal complication. I cannot thank them enough for their hard work and efforts and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know. They get the job done and they get results that are shockingly beneficial for their clients.

I hired Kurtz and Blum to handle a case for me. Their fee was significantly higher than most other firms, but they assured me it was because of their level of experience. After I hired, my case was handed off to a junior attorney, not one of the more experienced ones I was "sold." After being told in my interview process that my case would likely be favorably resolved in district court, I felt like little work was done to get a reasonable resolution in district court. I was told my option was to resolve it in superior court, and I was then quoted another outrageous fee. I felt that the handling of the case was just to lock me in and gouge me on the fee. I decided to hire another attorney that came with good recommendations and was much more in line with the average fee I found for good attorneys with experience handling my case. That attorney was able to get me a dismissal of charges in superior court. This process took forever - I've been dealing with this for a year now. While I realize that no one can make a guarantee as to the outcome of the case, I feel that these lawyers were not up front in terms of fees, the lawyer that would be working on my case, and how it would likely be resolved.

I MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS AND GOT INTO SOME TROUBLE A FEW MONTHS BACK. SINCE I WORK OUT OF STATE I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME FIGURING OUT WHAT TO DO. I HIRED KURTZ AND BLUM HOPING THEY WOULD HELP ME RESOLVE MY CASE, AT FIRST WITH A FEW CONCERNS. THE ATTORNEY HANDLING MY CASE MRS C. GRACE SALZAR, APART FROM BEING VERY NICE AND BEAUTIFUL REPRESENTED THE PRESTIGIOUS KURTZ AND BLUM VERY APPROPRIATELY AND EFFICIENTLY. TO MAKE SURE THAT THE OUTCOME OF MY CASE WOULD BE FAVORABLE. I WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE HIRING KURTZ AND BLUM EVERYTIME IF ALL OF ITS REPRESENTATIVES WERE AS PROFESSIONAL AND CARING AS MRS. C. GRACE SALZAR! MAKING CLIENTS FEEL IMPORTANT IS A QUALITY THAT KURTZ AND BLUM POSSESS!!!
