Theresa helped my husband and me with a real estate transaction. She was incredibly thorough and pointed out issues or concerns that we never would have thought of. We really appreciate her attention to detail and the fact that her follow up was so good. We'd recommend Theresa to anyone looking for a great Attorney.

I have had the pleasure of being co-counsel with Theresa. She was very diligent and give great attention to the details.
Posted by Ken | May 7, 2013
Responsive and Knowledgable; willing to work around the clock.
Just reached out about a situation we are in; she gave a free consultation. Don't know that we will end up needing her services, however she gave us some great advice about how to proceed, and we would use her if we needed it. We were crashing on a deadline, and she was busy during the work day so she called us at 10PM after a full busy day of her work and family activities. We certainly appreciate her helpfulness.
