| Hired Attorney
Great Criminal Defense Attorney
First, I consulted with Tana on possible defense options for my case and she provided different options for me to consider. Since I don't reside in NE, Tana explained how the process would work in my case. Then, I hired Tana as my attorney and she worked diligently on the possible options to get the best possible outcome for my case. She scheduled regular calls to touchbase and clearly explained next steps. She was available by phone and email. She is very knoledgeable. As a result, my case was dimissed. I'm very happy with the work Tana did and the guidance she provided throughtout all the process. Tana even helped me get court documents after my case was dimissed.

Ms.
I hired Tana to update my will for me. She did a fantastic job of asking me questions, in regards to my specific requests/needs. She explained everything thoroughly and in a very understandable way. After that positive experience, I also hired her in a Guardianship. Again, everything was handled in a very understandable manner and was expedited in a very timely manner. I was extremely happy with the way both of my needs were handled. I have and will continue to recommend her and her firm!
