“Ann was amazing and the perfect fit. She was so knowledgeable and she had the perfect balance of professionalism, humor and tact. We feel we are now in capable hands with hope and as luck would turn out she has knowledge and connections with the proper people with respect to a possible conservatorship in my parents’ county of Contra Costa. We are super relieved.”
