    I have known Brandy for several years. Her commitment to her clients and the community is very impressive. She is eager to stay on top of current trends in the law and I see her often at continuing legal education courses. Very polished and professional, she can take complicated estate planning concepts and explain them in such a way that anyone can understand. I have referred several clients to Brandy and would not hesitate to send my family or my friends to her for any contested estate planning matter.
