I first worked with Brandy at the Bureau of Labor and Industries and then we worked together in a small firm setting. I have known Brandy for years now and she continues to impress me with her knowledge, passion and dedication to each legal matter she tackles. She has a calm, compassionate and candid way of interacting with her clients. I would highly recommend Brandy as an advisor to any small business, especially with regard to employment matters. She will help you build a business you can be proud of and ensure your employees are productive and thriving while they improve your bottom line.
