Highly recommend

I have consulted with and hired Ms. Evans on many occasions over recent years. She has always been extremely knowledgeable and very helpful with the issues I have brought to her, being willing to answer any questions I asked. Ms. Evans also won a significant CEQA case for a neighborhood group I am a member of, with far-reaching local effects we are still discovering.
