    Debra is a very gifted advocate and an amazing human being. I had the opportunity and privilege of meeting Debra over a course which lasted a few weeks. During that time, I learned a lot about and from her. She is a very dedicated attorney who gives 100% for her clients. She is also very likable, which makes things difficult for opposing counsel. If you are looking for someone who would tell your story with passion, conviction, and who would not stop. I would recommend Debra without any reservations.
