    Sally Higgins has the highest ethical standards and has the highest abilities as a trial lawyer. She is extremely bright and possesses a thorough knowledge of the law. She also has keen insight into legal issues. In my opinion, the traits that elevate her so far above her peers are her excellent judgment, common sense and ability to advocate strongly without being unnecessarily argumentative. Her esteemed reputation among both lawyers and judges is well deserved.

    I have known Sally and her practice for years, have read the excellent briefs she has written,and argued in court side by side with her. She has the benefit of practicing for years with and making partner at a 200-plus lawyer firm that did sophisticated commercial litigation but was small enough to let her get first chair experience. I regularly refer commercial matters to her when my firm has a conflict. She is an AV lawyer. (I don't know if i have been asked to report on Ms. Higgins before.)
