"Easy to work with. Work completed in the timeframe discussed. Amount of time was within timeframe discussed."—Rosemarie Anderson, Hackensack, NJ

"I had a complicated issue of first impression in Virginia in an already messy divorce case regarding imputing gift income to the opposing party. It was an issue that had been at the forefront since the very beginning of the case, and the opposing party had completely stonewalled on it through two separate attorneys. With the help of Sandra's research I was able to brief the issue to the Court as to why the Court should follow the Rule from other jurisdictions which would favor our side, which prompted a complete 180 from the opposing party and led to a global settlement very favorable to my client's position."—Patrick McGraw, Roanoke, VA
