I have worked very closely with Simone of De Pinho Attorneys. During this time I have been very impressed by the dedicated manner with which Simone carried out her assignments with Pollock & Associates. Simone has displayed a maturity, motivational level and seriousness of purpose which I have rarely encountered during my interactions with other lawyers / attorneys. Simone is very bright and has demonstrated an eagerness to learn our industry and in turn giving us the best possible advice and recommendations.
Simone possesses many other qualities which I believe will make her a very successful lawyer / attorney. She is very well organised, approaches assignments in a systematic way, and manages her time effectively. Simone possesses an excellent grasp for the English language and displayed effective writing and editing skills through her work.
In conclusion, Simone is an outstanding young woman who has demonstrated the character and work ethic that I am confident will lead to success in her legal career. I recommend her without reservation for any legal matters that you might have.Michael Pollock
