  • Cynthia A. Kuno

    I have been opposing counsel against Ms. Carey on a number of occasions. She exemplifies the standard of legal practice that most attorneys aspire to but can seldom obtain, she exhibits the highest standards of professionalism coupled with a sharp intellect and impressive knowledge of the law.
