WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Ms. Booth has always got the right answers.”
“She's always one step ahead of everyone else.”
MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY
"Since my clients rely upon me to advise them in consensual transactions involving multiple parties, I take a holistic approach to each situation. I combine my knowledge of the clients’ industries, the unique elements of their businesses, and their specific project objectives with my best assessment of the motivations and objectives of the other parties to develop and navigate a path that maximizes the successful outcome for my clients."
