  • Erin Elizabeth Cartwright

    I endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of going to law school with Tatiana. I saw her work ethic when we were in school, and it has clearly continued. As a fellow lawyer, I am quick to judge other lawyer conduct and work ethic, and I can honestly say, she excels at both.
