Clients Say

We are proud to share the experiences of our valued clients. Their testimonials reflect our commitment to excellence, dedication, and exceptional legal service.

Last year, Shanen and I were working on an assignment to domesticate a sister-state judgement with the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles and, thereafter, enforcement of the judgment. Shanen was frank and friendly. We exchanged and shared legal knowledge. The debt, under hot pursuit, was fully recovered. Shanen knew the CCP rules well. Currently, Shanen and I were working on another litigation case. I hope to continue working with Shanen into another area of laws in the years ahead.
