I hired her for an expunction case and out of all the lawyers I consulted to do this job she was the only one who promised me to do it in the time frame I was requesting, but not only that; she did everything on her hands to meet this deadline. I’m very impressed with Carmen’s professionalism and the way she handled things to help me and get the job done on time. Aside of being a terrific lawyer, Carmen was also very friendly and honest with me all the time, and very approachable and willing to answer any questions I had at any time. Excellent job Carmen!”
