  • Andrea Nichole Lance

    Claudia and I met due to our work defending clients facing involuntary commitment to psychiatric institutions. Claudia is a caring and zealous advocate for her clients, with a genuine enthusiasm for their cases. She prepares thoroughly for each hearing to ensure that her clients have the strongest defense possible, even where the odds are not in their favor. I do not hesitate to recommend Claudia to anyone with a sensitive legal matter.
