Fantastic lawyer at a very difficult time. Professional and personable. Highly recommend her
Queta and her firm came highly recommended and I see exactly why. She met with me on short notice, took on my case despite a tight timeline, and she, ultimately, helped me immensely. Faced with an impending employment action, her blend of professionalism and compassion were exactly what I needed. She was honest and helped temper my expectations and extremely responsive in her communication. In a very short time frame, Queta crafted a compelling legal document supported by case law and exhibits. I wholeheartedly recommend Queta Rico.
