What Real People Say

“Highly recommended. Elena helped us with a complicated real estate transaction and we could not have been more pleased with her responsiveness, professionalism and knowledge of the law. We were referred to her by friends who have used her in the past for commercial/civil litigation cases and they were just as happy. She’s smart and down to earth, just what we were looking for in an attorney, someone who would give us a simple explanation of options and help us navigate sometimes daunting issues.”
