“Charlene is an excellent privacy and tech attorney. When I was CPO at AOL she assisted us with APEC related issues, employee training and other matters - her work was impressive - practical and business oriented. Her public speaking skills and training engagements are outstanding. She distills complex legal issues into memorable "take aways", while capturing the audience's focus with her enthusiasm and humor. Charlene is efficient, responsive and gets along great with clients. I am pleased to recommend her and to chat with anyone about her skills.”
