We love tough communication challenges, especially where the optics are terrible, the opponents are formidable and they want to silence the truth. We love it when clients brainstorm with us about how to achieve “the impossible” and the absolute thrill when progress is made.
From established businesses, start-ups, charities, associations, to home-based businesses, it’s not the budget that counts, but best strategy in using what you have where it matters most—like a stone toppling a giant.

“Crystal is a friend and colleague who specializes in reputation management and public relations. Although she is not a lawyer, she has worked in the law firm world and legal community for a decent amount of time and as such, could likewise analyze the situation and determine whether or not it would be necessary to get a lawyer on board. If it is determined to get a lawyer on board, Crystal will know the perfect person.”
— Richard Wilner, Wilner & O’Reilly
“Crystal would attend hearings with me in court and provide excellent advice and critique about my performance, the language used during that performance, and how to better address the court. And I think as a lawyer, if you can’t take criticism and use it to your advantage, then you’re never really going to excel, and I was very pleased to develop with Crystal in courtrooms some strategies that helped.”
— Mark Sparks, Trial Attorney, Provost Umphrey
