"Chrystan provided great creative solutions that fit both my budget and needs. She is a great listener, after our 1st conversation she gave a clear vision and communicated a solution that was easy for me to understand without feeling that I needed tons of legal training just to understand what was being said! Thank you and I plan to work with her again."
