    Attorney Durand is an exceptional attorney. She is uncompromisingly honest. She is strategically aggressive, a gladiator, but she is more than just a hired gun. Durand approaches her clients' cases thoughtfully. If a client is in trouble and needs an advocate to intervene, Durand calculates the appropriate level of response. She doesn't over react and she doesn't terrorize. That said, she is tough and can't be bullied. Her (smart) opponents learn to work with her, not against her. Read less
