    SIX STARS****

    I was in pursuit of legal advice and services and had NO knowledge of where to start. Just like another reviewer mentioned, Christine Branstad was my saving grace. She went above and beyond her expertise and used human compassion to help and guide me along the way. She is an excellent professional and I highly recommend not only her services, but her characteristics of how she handled the situation.
