Working with Katie, was a pleasure! She is responsive, her turn around quick and she represented me well! We were able to avoid litigation and come to a settlement agreement in my case; talk about weights lifted! I’m really glad to have met Katie who helped me tremendously! I’m thankful that the outcome over a challenging work situation that has plagued me for years has been resolved! A win is a win! I’d choose this firm again to represent me.
