Attentive and guiding
Ms. Graf is a knowledgeable lawyer who not only guides you through the legal process but also has the sense to know when you need some helping life advice as well.

aggressive and fair
Ms. Graf is exceptionally skilled in her field. She consistently completes tasks in a timely manner. It is not uncommon to have Ms. Graf inform me that she was able to get something done that very day or the following. She will make you feel as if you are her only client. Additionally, she is well prepared in court. She is articulate and presents her case well.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Don’t trust her.
I had a horrible experience with this attorney a few years ago. I spoke with her in the phone then went to her Office for a consultation. On the phone she advised me the first hour consultation was free; her website stated the same. However, after the consultation she charged me for an hour. When I reminded her she told me it was free; she told me she talked to me on the phone (which was only a few mins) and did I want her to charge me for that as well.
