Her expert counsel has assisted the Company, which does real estate and financing transactions, and me with a number of difficult transactions.

She is knowledgeable in her subject area and I always feel well taken care of without the confusing jargon and her prices are more than reasonable. She is also a lovely woman and easy to work with. She answers any and all questions without making the asker feel ridiculous. I highly recommend her without hesitation."
