Our Purpose

“Where I come from, being of service to other people is what it’s all about. Being a preacher’s son, I heard this all the time. At KSR, we live this every day.” – Steven Rowe

As it has been since our founding in 1977, our goal is to get you the best possible outcome in a timely, sensitive and dedicated manner. Whether your legal needs are business or personal, we are here to serve you.

Toward that end, we will leverage our generations of experience, diverse skillsets, and our industry-recognized leadership to be flexible, responsive, and personal, but also assertive, tenacious and thorough.

At the end of the day, it’s all about relationships and service to our clients. If you are not satisfied, neither are we.


Founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1977, KSR has been one of the leading law firms in the region ever since.


Our three founders, including Harold R. Kemp (1950-2011), believed that every client’s case should be justly served with the utmost integrity and experience. Today, our partners and associates continue to carry out that legacy.


To provide our clients with relevant, positive and meaningful outcomes to their legal challenges in a passionate, dedicated manner.


At KSR, we fight for you, your family and your business in all matters as though you are part of our family, because in many ways you are.
