Super trustworthy and polite, highly recommended
Recently, I tried to contact Jessica for consultation regarding one of my legal needs and I found her super trustworthy and she is highly knowledgeable. I will recommend her further to those people who really need some genuine lawyer in the market. Highly recommended.

Recommend Highly
We are a group of physicians who used Attn Block's services over the past 6 months through 3 significant disagreements with a prior organization. It was like watching a fine surgeon as she navigated through the bluff and bluster to achieve successful outcomes for all our issues. In the first disagreement she understood the contract and our rights enabling recoupment of income and avoiding for-cause termination. This was also a very emotional time and she steered through the landmines of anger and revenge with her diplomacy skills working on all sides to a place of calm satisfaction. The second disagreement required negotiating between 3 parties and again she was able to prevail. The third was around complex financial settlements and she was able to help us find the middle ground of getting our money without excessive legal fees. I highly recommend Jessica for her professional knowledge and experience in the law.
