Ann Marie Schott, Esq. is one of the smartest lawyers I have met. Time and time again, I was impressed by not only how she was able to identify the issues in my employment case but also how incredibly talented she was in telling my story. I had a complicated employment matter. Nevertheless, she was able to present it clearly, succinctly, and completely. I seriously did double takes in discussions with her – she’s just that smart. Anyone would be lucky to have her on their side. Her extreme intelligence coupled with her rock-solid tenacity is unparalleled.
