  • Robert James Ault

    I have known Briteney for several years & have the utmost respect for her. She is extremely knowledgeable, and thought of very highly by judges, prosecutors, and the defense bar. While she often handles terribly difficult cases, she routinely manages to reach outstanding resolutions. She is the ultimate professional and fights for each and every one of her clients. I highly endorse her.

    Brit is the definition of a no-nonsense advocate. She takes her work, and thus your case, very seriously and absolutely will not stand for anything other than justice in your case. Brit is not only keeps herself current with the state of the law, but she helps to form the state of the law. Whether a case is hers or not, she often joins in cases on appeal to provide the court with more information in order to make an just decision. Brit is a great advocate to have in your corner!
