  • Michael R. Bartish

    Jolene and I represented co-defendants in a Federal Criminal matter. Bottom line up front, she was brilliant. She got a result for her client - who was charged with a particularly ugly offense - about which I am still amazed. Her ability to think outside of the box and approach a case in a unique manner benefits her clients. She is an excellent attorney.
