  • Scott A. Adrian

    I worked for/with Alyssa during my fellowship with the American Board of Trial Advocates. She was an attorney at the the firm, while I was a fellow, awaiting bar results. Her extensive knowledge in the area of general civil litigation, and more specifically, employment law is astounding. I endorse this lawyer.
