Excellent Defense Attorney
Adrienne has been really great to work with! She always responds in a timely manner and is very conscientious. She goes the extra mile to get the job done right. I couldn't be happier with her work on my cases.

Fazio - work comp genius!
Working with Adrienne is both enjoyable as well as very informative. She has excellent knowledge of the work comp system and if she does not have the answer she will find it quickly. She is very responsive and always helps me in a pinch. She is a joy to work with.
