“As an attorney, I help my clients with this in mind: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you”. I am often asked, what would you do in this situation? I am an honest, objective lawyer who has a major preference of guiding a client to the best, least costly option that may be available. I also know the importance of speaking directly to all of my clients, and proudly offer direct consultations upon request.”
Clara and her husband are blessed with a son and a daughter. Clara enjoys working for the purposes set forth by God, poetry, travel and writing on a manual typewriter in her free time.
