I endorse this lawyer. Several years back, Ms. Blotnis worked for me. It was her final year of law school. Ms. Blotnis's work ethic was second to none. She was a dream employee. She would sit down at her desk in the morning and would work the entire day. She would rarely get up from her desk. Better yet, she spent very little time talking and virtually all of her day working. She has an old school work ethic. I was thoroughly impressed by it. She was witty, intelligent, and extremely resourceful. She also had an off-beat sense of humor that was refreshing. These are the precise tools that make a good lawyer. She's the kind of person that, if hired, would work for you for the next 25 years. This is not a phony baloney endorsement: it's true.
