  • Andrew Scott Levine

    Staycie is a repository of knowledge and advice, and her mentorship when I was beginning my practice was invaluable. Without her help and the help of others, I would have been lost at sea. I'm consistently impressed by her passion and her dedication to protecting the interests of her clients. I endorse her wholeheartedly.
