Dresden is a very competent, ethical and conscientious attorney. Please note that I am licensed to practice law in Florida, but I am currently working as a Trust Administrator for The Northern Trust Company. I checked "in-house counsel" below because I believe it was the closest to my actual title.

Dresden worked with me when she was just out of law school. I have watched her develop over the years from a new lawyer to an effective and experienced lawyer to whom I would confidently refer clients. I know her to be a highly ethical professional.
