"We had a charge filed against our company and Ms. Roland investigated and prepared our position statement, ultimately resulting in the charge being dismissed. She was detail-oriented yet efficient in handling this matter from beginning to end."
"Catherine did an excellent job negotiating an employment agreement in a contentious situation. She walked me through each step, was extremely responsive, and achieved the desired result. I will definitely use her again in the future!"
