Eugenie Rivers
Eugenie was impeccably thorough and detailed. The project was complex and required a great deal of knowledge and expertise. In fact, 2 other attorneys turned the project away because it was so complex and unusual. Eugenie's insight, expertise on complicated financial transactions, and advice were so valuable, and she was a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly.
