Sheila is an amazing advocate for her clients inside and outside of the courtroom.
Client Reviews
L. S. December 9, 2023
Incompetence at its best She often forgets what you talk about despite the fact that she takes notes. When she realizes that she made a mistake she will pull this "as your attorney I am telling you" instead of apologizing for her mistake. In short she will cost you more than her fee.
