“I’m pretty happy with results and his performance. [My attorney] is an amazing person. He’s very, very professional. I have dealt with other lawyers in my life, and they cost me money and a huge inconvenience. [My attorney] is precise and his performance at the hearing was impressive.

“Linda is adamant on sticking with what we want to do and she never inserts herself. She clears everything I have to say with my husband since it’s my husband’s mother – which I like. She’s very explanatory when we have a question or don’t understand something. And when she sends us an explanation in the email, if we don’t respond she follows up with us to make sure we understand. Linda is a very good listener and very caring. So far she has helped us achieve what we started out for.​​”

“She’s the queen. She’s doing everything I asked and then some. [My attorney] has a wonderful ability to put my thoughts in to plain text that absolutely covers everything that I want done. I cannot say enough about Meagan. She has always been responsive. I know she’s a very busy young lady but whenever she gets a free moment she starts responding to my emails and opposing counsel emails; she’s always on top of things. [My attorney] is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. That woman didn’t miss a minute when she was going through law school.”
