I've worked with Fran several times throughout her law career. She begins each project giving me an overview of what is entailed in time and cost, making sure I understand what she anticipates if things go as planned and what to expect if there are complications. She makes sure her schedule is cleared, and never carries too large of a workload to cause any of her clients concern that they will not have all of the attention that they deserve. She takes detailed notes, asking multiple questions and has always been respectful of my needs and is highly responsive to my emotional state. I have always felt comfortable sharing private information with her and truly feel she wants to do the best job for all concerned. more
