  • Not enough words or time to say what a great person

    Hello my name is Chante Wise and I am writing about Anne Saxton. There are not enough words or time to say what a great person and attorney she is. I met Anne about 3 1/2 years ago and she became my attorney through unforeseen circumstances (death of my husband ) but through every court appearance and meeting she has always remained professional at times when it was times she could have definitely stepped out the box. She is a great person and she really pulls all strings for her clients. I would always refer her services to anyone in need.
