Latest testimonials

“Tiffany is very calm, clear and concise. She has the ability to take the client’s emotion out of the case which is rare. She is very timely and never inflammatory – something that the client can sometimes be guilty of. She is highly skilled in shaping correspondence which quietly lands punches without being offensive. I would recommend her to anyone. “  Client Testimonial
