  • Bobby L. Bollinger Jr.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Helen for several years and have spent some time with her at Continuing Legal Education conferences. When I have a question about immigration law, I call Helen. I would not hesitate to refer a client to her.

  • John E. Fitzgerald

    It is easy to say a lot of great things things about Helen. She is an excellent attorney. She is kind, caring, thoughtful, selfless, and always thoroughly prepared in court. She would drop what she was doing in a minute if you needed help. She fights tirelessly on behalf of her clients. She is well thought of and deeply respected by her fellow attorneys, police officers, district attorneys, and judges. If more lawyers were like Helen, our profession would have a much better name than it does. Keep up the excellent work, Helen!
