I would like to mention that Christina Matthews is an amazing and helpful lawyer. She is very easy to talk to and was always understanding of the situation that we were in. She was a great person to have help us with the civil claim we were unfortunately in. We highly recommend her! If for any reason we ever have any legal problems in the future, she is our person! Thank you again Christina, for everything!
