"Litigation is an unfortunate consequence of a large volume of business. As a sophisticated consumer of legal services, I can say with confidence that Beth Kushner is the best litigator I have ever worked with."

- Greg Borca (Wonderbox Technologies), Mequon, WI

"Beth has provided legal services for us for over 12 years. During that period, she has handled a wide assortment of our cases, ranging from the small and mundane to the very large and complex. In each instance, she has handled the situation with practicality, mixed with thorough legal analysis, keeping us fully informed the entire time. Beth is a tenacious fighter and is never afraid to litigate when necessary, nor is she afraid to advise a client against litigation, if that is what she believes is the best course of action. Beth has a keen legal mind and, perhaps more importantly, the intuition to know how not to "over lawyer" a situation. I wish there were more lawyers like her."

- Michael Hallman (Rime Management Group, Inc.), Birmingham, AL
