“We appreciate the attorneys at Braun & Gresham being honest and upfront with our neighborhood in a very contentious and difficult utility case. They were a pleasure to work with, we truly felt we had the kindest and smartest attorneys and staff working with us! Our small community hired Braun & Gresham to prevent high transmission lines from cutting through our neighborhood and properties. [Attorney and Counselor] Patrick Reznik personally came to several HOA meetings and went through potential scenarios. [Paralegal] Audrey Banner was instrumental in organizing our documents and testimonies to ensure a timely filing. [Attorney and Counselor] Carly Barton expertly trained our property owners on how to testify and personally went with us as we presented our case to the Public Utilities Commission. We were constantly kept informed in each step of the process, with honest appraisals of our difficult situation. Patrick was a great liaison and helped align our neighborhood with other groups to strengthen our position. We are grateful that through their efforts, all of the routes that threatened our neighborhood were prevented and we were able to preserve the natural beauty for future generations to enjoy.” – Mike Stevens, President, Clearwater Ranch POA
