Her implementation of a cutting-edge firm database and legal background practicing at an AmLaw 100 firm provides clients thorough, streamlined analysis during this critical phase of litigation.

Our condo association was faced with monumental construction issues thanks to the original developer of our complex. We were cash poor and in no position to get legal representation without a contingency fee arrangement. Luckily for us, Scott Long and Burke Robinson were willing to take us on as clients. Their work ethic, professionalism and knowledge of condominium construction served our association very well. Any association would be well served in hiring these gentlemen to represent them.
