- Current or Former Co-Worker/Colleague
We have never been in the same firm together. I was a mentor to her when she first came out of law school and we ended up working cases together or consulting with each other on matters that arose in cases we were working individually.
- Same Client
I'm not sure what explanation is required: we co-represented the same client. We have also established a long term relationship of consulting on legal matters for cases that we did not directly work together.
Off and on with different cases since she came out of law school in 2017.
I have worked with or consulted with Lacey on numerous legal matters related to lawsuits filed and active in state and federal courts. She has an excellent legal mind and I know I can count on her to put in the work to make sure things are done right.
Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:
Lacey has a diverse and very good knowledge of the law based on her time in practice. Perhaps what is more important is that she knows how to find the law, understand it, analyze it's relevance, and appropriately apply it to the facts of a case.
Lawyering is hard work and good lawyers are comprised of a variety of different talents. One of them is applying legal principles to the facts of a case, what we call analysis. When I read Lacey's analyses, I find they are clear and thorough.
I have high standards for both oral and written communication. Lacey is very good at both.
It's sort of strange that I'm required to write about this - if she was not ethical and professional, I would not be giving her a referral.
