Efficient and dedicated to providing accurate information
I'm honestly embarrassed about my misunderstanding of this platform and how I conducted myself. I can truly say that amongst all of the people who either don't do their research or use ai, it's really pleasant to have someone who devotes their time to providing accurate answers from varying subject matters at a frequent rate without getting paid to answer the questions.

Very informative
I spent an hour speaking with Mrs Koslyn about a cybercrime issue and she was great to provide legal feedback on how the court side would see it.

She is very smart and considering
After I explain my story to her at first, I thought well she’s abrupt. She’s very outspoken, but what she was saying was actually making sense instead of playing the victim. I became more of an understanding person on the issue that was a hand she help me out to try to find the intermediate between me and the business not just for me which makes her a great lawyer. Thanks.

Pamela is outstanding and extremely knowledgeable. Her response to my question gave me hope, and the guidance that I desperately sought. When I contacted her, she was patient, kind, and understanding. She is very generous with her knowledge and she is compassionate. I completely trust her and her abilities in legal matters. I recommend her to anyone who needs assistance with their legal concerns.

Brilliant!
On the advice of a friend I contacted Pamela for some advice for an issue I was dealing with in the entertainment industry. Pamela immediately understood my issue. And clearly explained to me my options. It was exactly what I was looking for. I found her friendly and easy to talk to, responsive, and incredibly helpful not to mention brilliant in her assessment of my issue. I look forward to working with Pamela again.

Straightforward Consultation
I had a consultation with this attorney a few months ago. She was very generous with her knowledge and offered straightforward responses to my issues. I hope my issue resolves itself but I would will absolutely consider hiring her if the matter escalates.

Great legal advice from a very personable, smart, caring attorney!
I called Pamela based on the comment she made in response to a person’s legal concerns. I found her comments to be very detailed and helpful. She took my call. And as much as I tried to make it short and brief to not to bother her and take up too much of her time, she was so respectful and wanted to listen to everything I had to share and even asked good questions. She gave me great information to think about. She is super caring. I would definitely go back to working with her in the future. After my call, I found out that she is an amazing attorney based on all the reviews and the publications she was in. Pamela, thank you so much again!

One Sharp Lawyer!!!
Ms. Koslyn, is first and foremost talented in law, within moments of conversing with her, it is clear as day, and her thinking is way ahead of even one's questions. I am still looking to see how to leave more than 5 stars for Pamela, as she is a practitioner of law and superb SKILL! I'm rarely impressed, and she impressed me!

She took my call.
1st, she is the only attorney who gave a comprehensive and clear answer to the Q I posted. Then, she took my call and gave me 15 min of her time. She was straightforward and provided advice I could act on.

Highly Recommended
Very grateful to have found Ms. Koslyn and impressed with legal expertise.  Prompt response and very clear communication of case arguments and legalities.  Demonstrates seasoned knowledge of civil procedures, (even so far as being able to impressively recite specific state codes off the cuff for use in litigation/consultation). She was able to coach me through an extremely multifaceted case-- streamlining my argument into a concise and linear form for presentation to the judge.  She is attuned, considerate, professional, and highly attentive to detail. Her capacity to formulate a strong and clean case presentation for the court, out of an abundance of information, evidence, and narrative is exemplary. Prior to consulting with Pamela, my case was about as messy as was my understanding of it.  I'm incredibly confident with her, and again so grateful.  Truly can't recommend her highly enough. 5stars

Is Ms Koslyn The Real Erin Brockovich? Good and honest people are rare now a days. If You Hired Ms Koslyn Treat Your Angel Right
Ms Koslyn answered my call and without giving legal advice she did get me aware of a common mistake that most people make and she made me aware of how to protect my best interest. All within a window of a few minutes. I know you will read this and i hope all continues to be well for you in sunny California. You are very appreciated and i am very blessed to have been able to speak with you may god bless you for what you do for people in need.
