  • John-Paul Singh Deol

    I have very much enjoyed working with Krista on commercial litigation and defamation matters in state and federal courts over the past year. Most recently, we worked closely together in preparation for a jury trial in which Krista was the lead associate handling all aspects of the case. Krista is extremely knowledgeable and experienced in defamation, privacy, and First Amendment law. It has been a pleasure to learn from her guidance. I also routinely seek Krista's advice on matters of litigation strategy. I highly recommend Krista as an effective, efficient attorney who has a great deal of experience in commercial, intellectual property, privacy, and First Amendment litigation.
