"Alessandra helped me start my personal training business early 2017. She has been there for me every step of the way. I am not familiar with anything that involves creating or opening a business but Alessandra helped me work with an accountant to figure out which type of entity was right for my business. She helped form the business in New York and she drafted all of the legal documents I needed. We sat down to review all of the documents together and she helped me understand every single word! Sometimes I have a hard time understanding lawyers but Alessandra made it so simple for me. She was available at all times and always says, "that's what I am here for!" She always works with a smile on her face and is very patient since I had so many questions for her. I would recommend Alessandra to any one looking for a young, smart, and EXCELLENT attorney.

"I have been working with Alessandra for over 1 year. She has been instrumental in helping me establish my landscaping business from forming my LLC, drafting all legal documents, partnership agreements, employee contracts including non-compete agreements, and providing expert advise on starting up my business. She is super responsive and takes my calls all hours of the day. I never have to chase her down like other lawyers I have worked with in the past. Alessandra continues to provide assistance with my business needs and provides legal advice for me on an on-going basis. I am currently working with Alessandra on merging my business with another entity. She has made the process much easier and stress free for me. I can definitely count on her! -Luciana C. Haughwout."
