  • David Allen Hiersekorn

    I know Connie through a national organization of elder law professionals. She is a solid contributor to the group who always provides thoughtful and valuable advice and feedback to younger lawyers who don't have her experience and education background. I would recommend Connie to anyone in need of a qualify elder law attorney.
