"Merlaine is an excellent partner for anyone who is starting a business and in need of legal services. She was able to assist me in forming my LLC, negotiating contract clauses and being a helpful guide for legal matters that would be unknown to a start-up business owner. Her legal expertise is top notch surpassing that of many so-called business association lawyers. Without reservation I can recommend Merlaine to any start-up founder who wants to focus more on their business and stress less about legal."
