Tanya Herbertson and Helen Phelps know their law and the legal processes. They are on-time, courteous, thoughtful, sensible and smart, very good at explaining what is going on and what could be done, and what to expect. Very nice to deal with. A credit to their profession!

I’d have no hesitation in recommending your firm to other people.
