I was facing several felony charges and She came on top, I owed her my freedom and peace, She is a fighter, not a plea attorney like the ones appointedappointed by Mecklenburg Courts.

She fights for her clients. She knows her facts and law. She tries a lot of cases and does not roll over for anyone. She represents the poorest of the poor but you wouldn't know it by the way she fights for them. She has her rules and case law when the judge asks for proof about her argument. She is very passionate in what she does.
