    I have actually litigated opposing Ms. Ghantous. I found her to be very hard working, very very smart, zealous, caring about her clients, yet also very pleasant and professional in her dealings with me. She did all she could to resolve the case we had and we ultimately settled. I feel she did her client a great service and that she treated me and my clients with respect.
