"Perhaps the highest compliment a lawyer can receive is whether another lawyer would trust her to represent a loved one or close friend, If a close friend or loved one of mine were represented by Vanessa, it would give me enormous assurance that my loved one is receiving the time, attention to detail, and care that they deserve.
It is without any reservations whatsoever that I endorse Vanessa."
