What our clients have to say

“We did end up going to trial and we ultimately won. It was something I don’t want to experience again, but if I had to, I would call Dawn.”

SARA N.

“We were expecting to go to court, but Dawn worked really hard in the negotiation process and they settled for a lot less than what they were suing us for.”

BARBIE T.

“When it was time to face a very nasty opposition, she was able to be the guard dog and bad cop, when that was appropriate. I trust very deeply. ”
