    I endorse this lawyer for many reasons. She reported to me for many years in a corporate law department and proved her ability to deal effectively with the most complex legal issues. Following her return to private practice, I followed her career through her obtaining an advanced degree in taxation and establishing her own practice. I am impressed with her abilities and knowledge to the point that I retained her to advise me personally on wills and estate planning issues. She has my highest recommendation
