Boxerman, shareholder. “Amy has made herself an invaluable member of our Capes Sokol team by steady competence and rock-solid dependability… She is a very talented legal assistant.  She takes care of me and the four or five other professionals with whom she works.  She seems to have a sense when something extra will be required and… often assists other secretaries with projects and tasks that have looming deadlines.”
