Fantastic Lawyer
I attended a recent Zoom presentation and was very impressed with the clarity of her presentation and the depth of her knowledge. Most importantly, the depth of her concern for her clients and elder law issues in general is obvious.

Great presenter!
I have been fortunate enough to observe many of Chari's presentations. Chari is such a knowledgeable resource and has the uncanny ability to relate to people while discussing difficult subjects. She makes the law "make sense" without talking down to her audience.
