    “A lot of attorneys I’ve worked with in the past didn’t really have the business acumen, or the teeth - the chops, to see through and identify the way through. With this law firm, they show you the way through, almost like a partnership.”

    Landlord/Tenant Dispute "Tisha helped me with a commercial property that I own. She assisted me in resolving issues with my tenants due to a poorly written lease. Tisha was recommended to me by a friend and I would recommend her to others."

    Thank You Tisha! "I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done for my family, especially my dad, in the past couple of years. You truly have no idea how much of a positive impact you have made on my family and I will forever thank you. You continued to guide and help my dad, even when you had so much other stuff going on in your life and I am so grateful for that. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you and all of your hard work. You have allowed us to start fresh--while closing a chapter and beginning a new one."
