Claire worked with me several years ago on a very serious criminal case in Adams County. She demonstrated herself to be knowledgeable of the law and very zealous in her defense of those accused of crimes. My firm later hired her as an associate because of how impressed that we were with Claire. Unfortunately, I left before getting to work with her any further. I have worked with quite a few new attorneys over the years and I can say, without a doubt, that Claire was one of the best as that stage of her career. I have no doubt that she has only gotten better and hope to get to work with her again someday. I fully endorse her and would have no hesitation referring a client to her.
