  • Michelle L. Reynolds

    Sometime after initially meeting Jeannette, I serendipitous came across her again on my way away from my office. Her friendly personality, follow through skills (meaning she does what she says she's going to do), and indicatable knowledge of construction law, including contracts, compels me to endorse Jeannette.
