"Sunita was excellent, patient, and very detailed. As a small bootstrapped startup we are very cost conscious; however, with Sunita, we felt that the service and advice provided by her went above and beyond expectations. I highly recommend working with Sunita and will continue to work with her for future legal advice and TM requirements."
