    I had the pleasure of working with Norma at one of the largest consumer bankruptcy firms years ago. She was a great mentor and lawyer dedicated to her craft. Very intelligent. Norma is also one of the most compassionate advocates you'll find. You are in good hands if you choose Norma for any of your legal needs.
