Christine Conley is the most amazing attorney I have ever met! She is hard working and doesn't stop until the client is satisfied. Her assistant is always available when Christine is not. The entire office is professional, but friendly and caring! I can't say enough about them. I would refer her and her office to anyone that needs help! She helped me through one of the worst times of my life!
