  • Lubna Khan Jahangiri

    Linda and I worked on opposing sides of a case. It was a pleasure working with her. Her professionalism and ethical standards are difficult to match. She demonstrated competence, integrity and a strong sense of what's in the best interest of her clients. She is smart and a zealous advocate for her clients, yet earns the respect and trust of her opponents. These qualities are difficult to find in this combination these days. Linda strives to achieve the best possible results for her clients, yet at the same time she does so with honesty and a ferocious sense of what's right and what's wrong. She was a worthy opponent. She has definitely earned my admiration and respect.
