Finding Ms. Massoth was a literal god send. She kept my head level, explained everything so well, never promised more than she could give, and worked tirelessly. She gave me a great outcome, I will be forever greatful for her calm cool advice, her patience with listening to me, and with helping me so much. I would recommend her to anyone I know.

I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of my case. She did a fabulous job and I am so thankful that I found her. She was always very easy to get ahold of and always made sure I was fully aware of everything. Great experience with her.

Elisa helped with the sale of our business in a very quick manner, then again with the probate of our parents’ estate. She is caring, answers questions right away, and gives invaluable advice. Highly recommend her for all kinds of legal needs.

She also volunteered in many aspects at the high school. She was a phenomenal judge for Mock Trials – I highly recommend that she throw her hat in the ring for a judgeship someday! She worked wonderfully with the students – she was patient, answered all their questions, and gave them great advice. A woman of many talents!
