"Anne was invaluable in helping me start a new business. I was overwhelmed not only with the amount of work required, but with the complexity of the various legal issues I needed to address and tackle. Her calm demeanor and ability to provide explanations in understandable terms helped me stay calm and greatly reduced my level of angst.  I will continue to engage her services, knowing she will respond in a timely manner and confident she will use her time efficiently. As her client, I feel respected and valued."
