      We worked together closely over many months after she was appointed guardian of my client, who was drinking heavily, in a divorce with complex custodial and financial issues. I doubt that my client would have attained sobriety without the extraordinary coordinated efforts that Attorney Otis and I made to get her into treatment. I relied on her ability & judgment throughout. I will continue to refer cases to her with confidence.

      Gail was diligent during the discovery period. Did not leave one stone unturned. Unroofed subtle disparities on the part of the opposing attorney and maintained our integrity throughout the process. In the end, I felt that the settlement was fair and equitable.

      Gail explained legal issues in a manner that was easy to understand by removing the legal jargon. Gail provided fervent representation that yielded many favorable rulings. Although opposing counsel resorted to bully tactics, Gail remained the consummate professional and not deterred in her efforts in securing a 'victory'- if there is such a thing in family law. Gail and her very talented associate provided me with judicial relief that words can't begin to describe. Gail,a preeminent lawyer.

      Gail is very professional and extremely competent. She, as well as her associate, Katie Lenihan, were excellent to work with. They negotiated with opposing counsel in good faith and communicated every detail and strategy with me on an ongoing basis. I would highly recommend Gail and Katie for legal counsel.
