I truly can’t say enough good things about Stacy Streur. I am a visual artist, working for the first time on a project for which I need legal counsel; I thank my lucky stars that I found Stacy.  She is incredibly professional, kind, mindful of financial limitations, and works with an amazing spirit of collaboration.  Stacy is extremely knowledgeable, and very responsive.  She has facilitated a deeply meaningful project for me in ways that I could not have envisioned.  Stacy has my deepest respect and appreciation; I could not recommend her more highly!!
