I can’t say enough about, Ms. Lorraine Gauli-Rufo. Before I spoke to her about my case, I was very uneasy about my situation. I immediately felt comfortable after my very first meeting and was treated with respect and kindness. This made a stressful period in my life bearable. Along with her years of experience and expertise, I would strongly recommend her.
