Expert Consultation Advice
I came to Carol Bell with a specific consultative need. My circumstance did not require hiring an attorney, but as a lay person, I was not comfortable navigating the legal environment on my own. Bell was able to: assess my specific circumstance, outline my potential resolution pathways and finally assist me in crafting a response that would allow me to seek a resolution to my legal predicament. I could not give Bell a hire recommendation. I am wholly-satisfied by my experience working with her.
