"I worked with Ms. Mata on a tourism tax dispute and could not have been more pleased with her professionalism, skill, knowledge, and responsiveness.  She resolved the issue extremely quickly and with a sensitivity to my budget constraints.  Finally, she was enjoyable to work with, listened to my needs, and offered effective and insightful solutions.  Mine is a small business, and this is now my go-to firm for all legal work/document review.  Thank you, Frost and Associates!"
