  • Kari Ingrid Lester

    Emily works tirelessly for her clients whether it is in trial, or on urgent matters on which she is given little time to respond. She gets a handle of the applicable issues and law in short time and successfully addresses all of her client's needs. She has also demonstrated her extensive knowledge of wide ranging commerical and civil matters on numerous occasions, and she is a very talented writer. Her business experience not only assists her clients in the planning stages, but also strategizing for the future. I highly endorse her.
