    Ms. Umscheid is extremely client-oriented with an uncanny ability to understand the client's objectives, then develop, implement, and successfully carry through on an effective action plan. She is an efficient attorney, who looks for cost-effective approaches to realizing the client's objectives. Whether in commercial loan workouts, creditors rights litigation, defending "lender liabilty" claims, or taking a case (and winning!) at the 9th circuit level, Ms. Umscheid is a great attorney.
