Reputation and integrity matter, Mimi has built her reputation in the legal community through many years of hard work. Alongside the years, came a wide array of factual scenarios in which to hone her craft. “I remember when a young man came to me who could not understand why his breath test was so high. Utilizing my training and research, we were able to prove his rare blood disease affected his hematocrit and therefore his breath result. No doubt, it is truly rewarding to so specialize in a field so that you can spot the outlier issues that can critically affect a case.”
