More than just law
Tiffany acted as Legislative Counsel for a municipal board for which I was a member. She was not only extremely knowledgeable on every legal ball we threw in her court, she also took the extra mile to make sure that we were informed and empowered to make good decisions. But what was most impressive about working with Tiffany, was her willingness and desire to create an authentic connection with the residents in our town. She not only listened to us but also to them. She wanted the best for our community as a whole and that was above and beyond the call of duty. A+ legal counsel!
