Gina is an excellent communicator and more than an attorney. She's compassionate and understanding, yet she's well versed in what she works in. I am completely satisfied and relieved to have had her on my side. Gina is awesome at answering questions promptly and explaining in detail and in easily understandable terms. Thank you!
