Professional and ethical, with a passion not just for the law, but for doing the right thing
Michelle Gastil was very helpful in her handling of my legal matter, and always looked out for my best interests. She is a talented, highly-educated and competent professional. Just as important, she cares about her clients and is a thoroughly decent person. I highly recommend retention of Michelle for your legal needs in her areas of expertise.
