Abbott and I have worked together for over a year on a feature film (www.KentonBartlett.com). She works as our entertainment attorney.
Though she began work on the project early in her career, she took on the challenge full-heartedly and let no obstacle stand in her way. If she didn't know the answer to a particular problem, she found the solution immediately.
Her turnaround on legal documents and overall responsiveness is unsurpassed. She's both friendly and professional.
She continues to work on our project pro-bono with the enthusiasm and pro-activeness of a top-paid legal adviser. If you have the chance to work with Abbott, you're making a mistake to pass it up.
Feel free to contact for a personable evaluation of Abbott: [contact information removed]
