Extremely Supporitve
When I first arrived at Mrs Luna's office I was broken, confused and I believed my rights were violated. I was facing a corporate giant but she was up for the challenge. Mrs Luna was very thorough and did her job to the fullest. I was under the impression that I had bitten off more than I could chew but she was not afraid. She never hesitated to tell me what we could or could not do. She has been my lawyer for the past 4 yrs and I strongly recommend her and her team. Discrimination is a very hurtful thing to encounter and it takes courage to take a stand. Sometimes courage alone may not do it but with someone like Mrs. Luna in your corner your chances are much better.

What a blessing!
The misfortune of a family member growing old is a sad day that we must all experience. When my time came to deal with my moms,trust, will and the estate I turned to Teresa. I had known her as such a outstanding teacher many years before she went to law school and then she came highly recommended when I was desperately needing help for my mom. After the first visit mom and I knew this was the wisest choice we could have made. She was so easy to work with and hit the ground running with our concerns and needs. God had answered our prayers when we found her. She treats others with dignity and heart of a stewardship.

Truly made me feel like family!!
I met Mrs. Teresa during a very dark time in my life and was in complete shambles. After our first visit, Mrs. Teresa made me feel like a person again and gave me hope that I would recover from this unfortunate event. She is very thorough, caring, understanding and very, very good at her job. She made my experience much more of a delight than I thought was possible. I also want to mention her assistant, Mrs Keri. She was also an instrumental part of making my experience a positive one. Mrs Keri is much like Mrs. Teresa with having very strong people skills and so very helpful throughout the entire process. She is a great asset to Mrs. Teresa’s team. We all connected instantly and they inspired me with hope. They literally made me feels like family and I can’t thank them enough!! God Bless!

Teresa Luna- strong recommendation
Ms. Luna represented me in hotly contested litigation that involved multiple areas of law. She was always thinking ahead and preparing for any possible move by our opponents. She was also very effective with our trial judge. I would highly recommend her as an attorney either in litigation or in assisting clients with complicated legal problems.

Ms. Luna is fantastic
My business partner and I were involved in a very complex business divorce that involved literally over 10,000 pages of documents, outrageous defense tactics and was all out war. Ms. Luna was always prepared, always knew the appropriate law, or at least what needed to be asked, and kept a level head when others about her were losing theirs. She was the steadying force on what was a roller coaster ride of litigation and emotions. If you need legal assistance, you cannot afford to hire anyone else.

She went above and beyond for me and I have no doubt she does the same for all of her clients
Teresa Luna is the very best attorney you could ever have on your side. If you feel you have been discriminated against, harassed, not treated equally by your employer. Mrs Luna is who you need on your side. Not only will she go above and beyond to fight for your rights, she was there for me. She was never too busy to answere questions, call me right back, email me right back. I went through the hardest time of my life with this attorney. Being an attorney isn't just a job to her, you can tell she has a passion for what she does and it shows. She always took the time. She is very thorough. She is an amazing attorney and person. She has every quality you want in an attorney, and has determination. I really believe there isn't a case to big or too small. She can handle it. If I had to go through it all over again, I would, as long as Teresa Luna and her partners were behind me every step of the way just as they were.

Excellent attorney!
Mrs. Luna and her staff were very professional. They were with me every step of the way, and always took time to explain things thoroughly. They were always available to answer any questions or address any concerns, sometimes even after hours. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Luna to anyone in need of legal help. She settled my case quickly and fairly.

Exceptional
I felt Teresa Luna to be a more than exceptional lawyer. She cares about her clients. I felt as though I was being treated by family. She went above and beyond in what was necessary. When it felt like my case was hopeless, she remained with me and fought all the way through for 4 years and was very successful on my case. She was honest about the case and her honesty was beyond reproach. If anyone asked my opinion on a lawyer, I would highly recommend her to them. I will also be using her again.

Superb!!!
I highly recommend Teresa Luna. She genuinely cares for her clients and their best interest is priority. If you are looking for someone that will go to the mat for you, she is definitely the one. She fought hard for me for 7 exhausting years and was relentless in winning my case, and she did just that! We were successful! Thank you so much Teresa Luna!
