  • Edward Jacob Sternisha

    I endorse Attorney Huang. I had the opportunity to participate in an advocacy program with Attorney Huang and found her to be very knowledgeable and talented with regards to her trial skills. She is a lawyer who speaks from her heart while at the same time, advocates with passion from the great knowledge she holds in an effort to fight diligently for her client. I endorse her without reservation!
