Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Tom Youngjohn

    I endorse this lawyer. She is my partner in crime. (Okay, okay, full disclosure. I was just having fun. Ms. Vance has an awesome legal mind and I just wish that she was my partner in crime.)

  • Stefanie Marie Dorn

    I endorse this lawyer. Tanja is not happy with a result unless she is "performing a miracle" for a client. An just ok deal is not ok with her, and she will keep pushing until she gets the result she wants, which she always does.
