"I want to first say that Krishana is amazing. She knows what she's doing and she was 150% in my corner, working as hard as she could for me as a person the whole time. I wish I could give her a 5 star rating for caring, 5 stars for hard work, and 5 stars for dedication. A lot of things happened all at once, including the holidays and personal life, that ended up with a super crazy situation and I don't feel like I can realistically give 5 stars for either of the timing ratings in this one case, but, honestly, I think that under normal circumstances, she would be on top of things and probably rate 5 stars across the board. I think this was one of those weird cases (and situations and timings) that everyone gets at some time where almost everything goes wrong that can go wrong, but I do recommend Krishana. So despite that "overall" star rating score, I highly recommend her as an attorney to help you get exactly what you need."
