Our firm has a wide variety of technological advances which Buffy utilizes to their fullest extent.

This is a responsibility the she takes very seriously, and client care is her primary focus at all times. Buffy believes that each and every client is a member of our family and wastes no time in taking on client problems as if it were her own. She makes herself available to assist clients at all times to answer questions and keep them updated as to the progress of their case.
