"We are a small social media marketing company and we work with large corporations. Meredith has worked with us for almost seven years. Meredith drafts service agreements that are easy to read and get signed, while always covering our concerns. She also negotiates extremely well. Meredith ensures we get what we need in the agreement, but, she also ensures the negotiations end on a positive note so we do not have problems working with our clients. Meredith has been an important part of our team and we enjoy working with her."

"We are a software development company and we needed a new software license agreement for a new product. We already had a decent existing software license agreement, but wanted something better as we roll out a new product that is a bit risky. Meredith drafted a new software license agreement that was a definite improvement over our last version. She understood our concerns and explained things in basic terms (not legalese) so we could understand her. Meredith was responsive, kept to our timeline, and is just super fun to work with. We will definitely use Meredith as we further grow our business."
