  • Norman Pine

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Genie hired me to defend appeals of two employment law verdicts she won (a $6.5 million verdict and a $1.7 million verdict). In working on those appeals I saw firsthand what a spectacular trial lawyer she is. I recommend her without hesitation, especially in the area of plaintiffs' employment law. Norman Pine
