    Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter

  • Maya Trujillo Ringe

    I have worked with Jamie Polito Johnston since 2007. Jamie and I have worked together as co-counsel, but even when she is not directly working on a case with me, I enjoy consulting with her on complex cases to ensure that I am approaching all angles of a given matter. I have also worked on a case against Jamie before I joined our current firm. I can attest both from my current peer relationship with her and my previous experience with her as opposing counsel, that Jamie is bright, dedicated, and professional and her clients are consistently both impressed and appreciative of her work product. Jamie has turned her academic success into a successful practice, and I admire her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking advice on family law or employment-related issues.
