    I was very impressed with Hollie. She kept me informed all the time on what was going on and what would be happening in the near future. She was professional, honest, trustworthy, a great listener and compassionate to my situation. She really helped calm my nerves when going through the ups and downs of the case. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation. Hollie is a very hard worker and I appreciated all that she did to help me win my case.

    Hollie was professional, caring and persistent. It took over a year for all of the different filings to occur, but I was informed when each step of the process was moving forward.{newline}Having been to another legal service in town who never had the same lawyer or legal assistant be there for me for more than 3 months at a time, it was great that Hollie was there from the beginning and was there when we settled the case. Thank you!
