Tsion has more than thirteen years of experience in helping the clients of Pingel Family Law get through their difficult family law issues. Attorney Pingel often tells clients that Tsion being a part of their legal team is one of the best assets and selling points for the firm. With Tsion’s significant experience, she often has creative and invaluable suggestions, problem solving ideas and is very capable in organizing trial preparation, outlines, identifying and prioritizing evidence for trials, among other things.
