“Erica Tannenbaum was my attorney and she is the BEST hands down. She was very attentive always keep me informed with everything that was going on with my case. She is very professional but don’t let the nice suits fool you, she’s a BEAST in the court room. I would highly recommend her and The Barnes Firm.”
