5 / 5 stars
Courtney not only did an incredible job as my lawyer, but she is the very rare attorney who actually cares about her clients. It goes without saying that we came out ahead, but when I met her, I instantly knew that she was someone I could trust to get the job done. I never doubted her and she never let me down. I highly recommend Courtney and her firm Pilchman & Kay.
