  • Justin K. Schwemmer

    Debra is a fierce and zealous advocate for her clients, and also an example to be followed for civility in the profession. She is generous with her time in mentoring newer attorneys, as well. I highly recommend her for any personal injury, divorce, traffic, or criminal matters.

  • Young S Song

    I highly recommend her for serious criminal cases, in addition to your run-of-the-mill DUI/DWI/traffic cases. She recently obtained a hung jury for a client charged with murder, on a very difficult set of facts. When the case was retried with another defense lawyer, that same defendant was found guilty and was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
