    I worked with Ms. Becerra when she was a recent law school graduate. Her work was always of the highest quality, she was exceptionally diligent, and she had the highest ethical standards. I haven't had the opportunity to work with her now that she is an experienced attorney, but I have no doubt that she continues to follow her high stands for professional excellence.
