Ms. Emerson recently helped me through a bankruptcy. Having never done this before, I didn't know what to expect. She explained things very clearly to me. She was very efficient and always answered my questions in a timely, compassionate and professinal manner. Having her on my side to walk me through the process really put me at ease. I have since referred other people to her without hesitation. She is honest and has a genuine desire to help her clients.

Sandra is handling 4 complicated foreclosure cases for me. I continue to be amazed at her ability to quickly analyze information and jump right to the pertinant issues. She quickly interprets and synthesizes elements of complex legal issues to develop an overall strategy for each particular case.
Sandra is by far the best attorney with whom I have worked. She has demonstrated excellent legal skills in the managment of my cases for the best possible outcome in a timely fashion. Sandra keeps me well informed of legal proceedings and the status of my cases.
