Sally represented me through a tumultuous case. Her knowledge and experience really showed during the negotiation process. I’m sure my outcome would’ve been negatively different if I did not have her as counsel. Thank you for your representation!
I worked with Sally Comin to review my separation agreement when I was laid off, in March 2013. Sally is an attorney who truly looks out for the needs of her clients. She helped make a very difficult situation better. Through her expertise, the process was very quick and painless. I am truly grateful to have had Sally guiding me throughout the process.
I hired Ms. Comin to review an employment contact. She was very thorough, and she explained my options in a clear and understandable manner. I have since referred Ms. Comin to other people, and they have also been pleased with her work.
