I retained her for a family member's case; I live out of state and I needed someone to advocate the family's concern to our loved one, but to also fill the role of advocate for the defendant.

In-fact, while she made absolutely no promises or predictions as to the ruling--the outcome for my sister and in-turn for all of us--was surprisingly better than we could have hoped for.
