"Thanks to Patrice I have a good handle on the process for trademarks and understanding how protecting my IP is an investment for the future. Patrice makes the process easy. This is not my zone of genius, but I knew things were handled and I could count on Patrice to give me the straight goods even when things got sticky. She saved me in a big way in a ill-named course that would have never cleared for a trademark and would have set me up for legal issues in the future. Now I have a name I own and love thanks to her counsel and patience with me. Patrice has a deep understanding of entrepreneurship as an entrepreneur herself. There's no dude in a suit raising an eyebrow at you as you explain your IP or idea. It's a breath of fresh air! She's smart, insightful and makes dealing with legal issues at least a million times better. I mean, what entrepreneur says "oh goodie, I need to hire a lawyer!" <For the record, exactly, no one.> But when you work with Patrice you forget all about that and the law becomes less of a chore and more of a strategy for your business.

"I successfully sold my business at exactly the price and amenities I wanted. I had a baby and now have started working for the company that bought mine in a new role as part of a 5 year employment contract that Patrice helped me negotiate. Patrice is very matter of fact and efficient, no-nonsense and offers real world advice and counsel for non-legal people. She is a strong advocate for her clients and her responsiveness was excellent. I felt that she genuinely had my best interests at heart and she motivated me to seek out a competitive offer from the buyer at a time when I was feeling like a failure and not able to be my own best advocate. Patrice is thoughtful and tenacious, and put the needs of her clients first."
