Elisa was able to have my felony 2014 convictions over turned and then dropped. She was working on my 2014 criminal cases in 2023 and 2024. Elisa is very professional, prompt, honest about possible outcomes, and communicated with me about my case the entire journey. Never in a million years did I think this outcome was possible. Elisa really is an amazing lawyer who is very compassionate about her clients. She made a big impact on my future and I am forever grateful for her!
