    I had the honor and privilege to work with Saraliene Smith Durrett for approximately four years at Chesnoff & Schonfeld. Saraliene is incredibly motivated, intelligent, hard-working, diligent, patient, and dependable. Saraliene exhibits an enthusiasm, commitment, and perseverance far superior to the average lawyer. Saraliene's writing abilities are nothing short of a scholar, and her winning arguments are a true testament to her devotion to her clients, and commitment as an officer of the Court. Saraliene strives to do the best in her endeavors, and she is diligent researcher. Saraliene demonstrates model integrity and manifests professionalism in all legal matters. I personally endorse Saraliene Smith Durrett as an advocate and counselor of law.
