not sure what is needed here....sorry!
This is the first time I've ever needed a lawyer for anything and was a bit nervous with what I needed to be doing throughout the process. Christine Esser was always helpful and kind and thorough with explanations of all I asked.

Diligent, Competent, Compassionate
Christine handled a personal injury case for me. She produced unexpected results through her precision and diligence, and lifted my spirits each time I met with her, which was important, as my injury was facial. She is a gem for our fair little city, and I am thankful I found her. Highly recommend!

Exceptional
Christine concluded my case to my complete satisfaction. She was diligent, precise, and represented my claim in a forthright manner. I would highly recommend Counselor Esser to any potential client.

The Best Attorney I Ever Had The Pleasure To Work With
Christine Esser simply worked above and beyond what I expected in regards to my case. Without going into details her legal help extended far beyond getting a monetary settlement, delving into legal complexities surrounding the use of presented funds. Her passion to help her clients is drawn from a deep commitment to help those in need. And those that place their trust in her are lucky indeed! I feel the above short comments captures my respect for Attorney Christine Esser.
