"Ann was retained to work on a complicated multi-party lawsuit arising out of a land dispute in an historic area of Charleston, South Carolina. Ann proved to be knowledgeable, organized, and a zealous advocate, while still mindful of budgetary concerns. Notably, she was able to deal with a variety of difficult personalities seamlessly. Also, I never had to call her to find out what was happening on the ground; she provided timely and much appreciated regular communication. When I did have questions, Ann was able to answer them quickly and thoughtfully. Based in part on Ann’s tireless work on this project, we were ultimately able to reach a successful resolution of a complicated matter. I work with outside counsel in multiple jurisdictions across the United States and there have been times that I’ve wished I could clone Ann to do work for us in other states."
