  • Robert B Cummings

    Ann is one of the most compassionate attorneys that I know. She is a zealous advocate, great writer, and even better trial attorney. Her devotion to her clients is beyond admirable, and something that I hope to achieve someday in my own practice.

  • Sean B Druyon

    Ann Marie and I were invited to judge the BYU mock trials this past year. Ann Marie was a delight to be with during this event. She provided students with valuable insights on effective trial advocacy and did it with humor, intelligence, and accuracy. I would highly recommend her for any criminal defense matter!
