  • Robert Lenz Meylan

    Pam is an excellent lawyer in every respect. She is very good at evaluating a case and deciding whether the client should proceed. She is experienced in handling all phases of the trial and is an excellent negotiator. Finally, if the case must go to trial, she is an experienced and top-flight jury trial lawyer. I strongly endorse her.
