"I have been a litigator for more than 10 years. I hired Coleen in a sort of "co-counsel"/consulting role just as I was about to begin a federal trial. On short notice, I needed Coleen to research and draft a trial brief on a very important issue. Her work was excellent. Since then, I have brainstormed strategy with Coleen in preparation for an appeal in the same case. Very smart and pleasant to work with."
