"Kendra provided legal research for a complicated and confidential matter. She was able to clearly articulate the legal issues so that we could determine what was in the best interest of the organization. She went above and beyond by providing recommendations based on concerns we brought to her in our initial meeting. She was excellent and we look forward to working with her again in the future."
