It’s difficult for me to put into words what an amazing attorney and person Lorraine is. Unlike most lawyers, Lorraine honestly cared and made time for me even though she had a lot of other cases. She was always positive, very attentive, and answering my phone calls. Lorraine and I not only communicated over the phone, but she also visited me several times. Her care and concern for me were so immense that I see her as family now. Lorraine is honestly one of the best attorneys a person can have.
