Ms. Salmond cultivates strong relationships with her clients for whom she serves as a compassionate attorney, advocate, and friend. She is well aware that litigation is challenging for clients, especially when a family trust or business is involved during emotional times. Ms. Salmond knows firsthand the impact these disputes have on a family. She always tries first to resolve these issues amicably and efficiently. Starting with the first client meeting, she strives to address her clients’ legal needs with a caring understanding and approach to work for what is best for the families involved. However, in those cases where legal action is required, Ms. Salmond has the experience and mindset to put into action a litigation plan crafted to protect her clients’ interests.
