Dionne Savage has been working with our CDE on our NMTC program since we began almost 10 years ago. She is accessible, reliable, and whip smart and we owe much of our success in the industry to her counsel.

Dionne Savage represented us in connection with our $50 million bond financing transaction to build our new healthcare facility. She is a highly professional and responsive attorney who is a tough advocate for her clients. Well-respected in the community by her opponents and peers, she makes the deal process feel seamless because she finds innovative and strategic ways of problem solving. I would highly recommend her and her firm and look forward to working with her again.
