    Anna is an experienced litigator who keeps the client's perspective in mind, not just in trying to keep litigation expense low, but also in how the client may be impacted in ways other than the outcome of the lawsuit. I think the latter is due to her years of experience in the professional community as she seems to know the "players", particularly with the construction trades and developers. I would use Anna for just about any lawsuit in state or federal court. I give my highest recommendation.
