"As a Chief Credit Officer in commercial banking, I have worked with many attorneys. Kim Mauer is by far the "best" attorney in negotiating, preparing, and structuring complex commercial credit facilities for the bank; she also takes a sincere interest in advising the bank on both credit and non-credit issues. As a Chief Credit Officer, I have complete faith in her counsel, and, as I have told my fellow bankers, I want Kim Mauer on my side of the table when I am negotiating a complex and difficult credit transaction. Kim is a real asset to the legal profession, and I would highly recommend her both as an attorney and as a person. "

"Kim Mauer is the finest commercial attorney with whom I have had the opportunity to work. She is not only extremely knowledgeable and seasoned, but also very responsive and practical. She anticipates issues and directs your attention to those. Her foresight has helped me avoid any number of difficult situations. She also fully explains and illustrates with examples the various legal issues attendant to our transactions, which permits me to strike a business balance in my decision making."
