    Smart, deeply-experienced, knowledgeable and not merely "competent" - but "good!" Ms. Ames is a zealous, passionate, and aggressive advocate for her clients' interests. She is always a very well prepared, tenacious, and formidable adversary, who seems most at home in court. Few attorneys would want to oppose her, and I unabashedly and categorically endorse and recommend her professional services.
