★★★★★
I'm extremely impressed with my experience with Kristina Reed. I used her services to negotiate a commercial lease in Folsom. Our agent had actually recommended a few attorneys to us but we didn't feel comfortable with any of them. I was very impressed with Kristina on our first conversation. The landlord group was one of the hardest you can find to deal with. There were lots of going back and forth but Kristina's knowledge and experience made my life very easy. She was always quick to get back to us whenever we have questions. She pointed out issues on my lease that my previous lawyer totally missed. I recommend Kristina's services to everyone I know. My friend just used Kristina's services for his lease negotiation in Davis and he was very impressed as well. Devin B.
