  • Gregory L. Jensen

    I endorse this lawyer. Sharon Jannuzzi and I worked together on a difficult trust in litigation before the Reno probate court. She argued the case very well. Her written work was first rate. The judges and other lawyers I know in Reno respect her highly. In 34 years of practice, I have worked with many attorneys--Sharon Jannuzzi is among the very best. I highly recommend her for trust and probate work. Greg Jensen, Reno Attorney
