Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Kenneth Peter Crosson

    Dawn is the first person I think of when I see a guardianship case or issue, because she is tremendously talented and experienced as well as being deeply compassionate and generous. Guardianship law is a sensitive area where people on both sides of the case can be vulnerable, and where an attorney who is both skilled in the law and a truly decent human being can make a significant difference in their lives. Dawn is both those things, as well as a tireless supporter of the legal community and one of our best local citizens. I can't endorse her strongly enough.
