Exceptional Work Ethic
Meredith produced, edited, reviewed, negotiated and completed a pre-nuptual agreement on my behalf. She was courtious and explained to me the Pro's and Con's of each approach i was attempting to take. She was well versed in the law and was able to negotiate with my fiance's attorney to produce a document that both myself and my fiance were happy with.

Not recommended,
I hired Mrs Johnstone hoping that she would perform in accordance to a professional level that would show support, communication, and attention to my case. Instead I found that her deficient communication in regard to updates, setting a definitive action plan in regard to the handling of my case, as well as her lack of empathy and interest would be my deciding factors in dismissing her as my legal counsel. I would not recommend her due to her inattentive advocacy in my behalf.
