  • Kristin Kathleen Grossman

    I highly recommend Wendy for family law matters. This is not only because she is a caring, compassionate person, but also because she is an outstanding practitioner. Her attention to detail and knowledge of the law along with her friendly bearing is a perfect combination for a client going through a difficult time.
