Personable, Patient and Understanding Lawyer
I consulted with Crystal regarding a landlord-tenant issue and she was patient and understanding of my situation. She provided with me guidance to help me address my concerns. I would highly recommend speaking with her if you have any of these issues - if my situation is not resolved, I plan to reach back out to her to help settle my case.

Great Attorney
We've hired Crystal to represent us in Landlord/Tenant cases. We found her to be organized, prepared (most attorneys open the file for the first time when you're actually in court), courteous and effective. We'll most certainly continue to use her when the situation presents itself.

Excellent Experience
Crystal has represented my family for years now. Nothing but positive things to say about my experience with her. She has worked with me from the beginning to ensure I was well informed and at ease. Communication is key when working with ANY attorney -- Crystal has been engaged in our case from day 1 and makes herself available when needed, always there to provide direction and answer any questions in a timely and efficient manner. Thanks Crystal!

Knowledgeable and Efficient!
Crystal handled the sale and closing of our (somewhat complicated) co-op. She made the transaction easy for us and made sure everything was done in our best interest. We had a very seamless and successful closing and we are grateful to Crystal for her expertise and professionalism.
