I have known Ms. Hooglander since 2010. I am personally aware of her professional knowledge. I have had occasion to consult with her on my matters and her advice has been outstanding. I have also had the opportunity to observe her in the courtroom. Her demeanor is impeccable and the passion and care she brings to the case on behalf of her clients is obvious. I am pleased to endorse this lawyer.
