    As an associate in Attorney Wholey Briggs's firm, I have witnessed first-hand the level of care and skill she brings to each client's legal matter. Her experience as both an attorney and as a registered nurse allows her to bring a perspective to medical malpractice and personal injury cases that is truly unique in the legal community.
