Excellent Result, GREAT LAWYER & GREAT PERSON ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was seriously concerned of the possibility of having a criminal conviction on my record, but I felt confident after my first meeting with Ann that she would help me out, and I was able to stop worrying. She explained everything to me very thoroughly and answered all of my questions and concerns. She did not sugarcoat the legal problems that I was faced with. I did not feel like I was just one of many clients, but that she really did take a personal interest in my case. Ann is extremely knowledgeable, confident, and has an in-depth understanding of the how the legal system works. She spent a lot of time with me reviewing the circumstances and getting information to defend me. She was very patient! I know she also spent a lot of time and effort talking to witnesses, even those who were against me. She can be super aggressive, and she is a real fighter. She really worked hard for me. I truly believe that I received more than my money's worth. I will never be able to express how relieved I was with the results when it was over with. My entire family will be forever grateful for Ann's efforts.

Federal Fraud Client ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I can not say enough good things about Ann. I was charged with a very serious federal crime and looking at between 20-30 years. Ann was recommended to me and was the third attorney I hired for my case. She was there for me and my family throughout the whole process and informed me of everything from best case to worst case scenario. She negotiated a really good deal for me and at sentencing really fought hard for the lowest sentence I could get. Ann is a great attorney, I would recommend her to anyone.
