  • A. Ken Womble

    I can honestly say that I have never worked alongside an attorney as tenacious as Ms. Bettenhauser. She is easily one of the hardest working legal minds I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and anyone who is able to procure her legal services should consider themselves incredibly lucky. I fully endorse her.
