Glicel Sumagaysay was invaluable in providing excellent legal service. Going into a lawsuit, I didn’t know what to expect. She patiently guided me through the process each step of the way. Glicel was available at all times for any questions I had and answered all of my questions no matter how trivial they were. I really felt in the loop as she always kept me updated/informed. Glicel had my best interests at heart and I am very happy with the service she provided.
