From the moment I met Ms. Kiffin Lewis, I was so impressed with her knowledge, her professionalism, her caring, and understanding of my legal dilemma. Her knowledge of the law is impressive, and she was able to clarify and interpret the law so that I could better understand it. Her recommendations were on point, and as a result a reasonable and fair settlement was reached. I have given her business cards out to co-workers and have highly recommended her.
