"Yvenne is an outstanding attorney and is a great person to work with as well. Her writing is clear and understandable, she's very responsive, and expertly handled a very complex contract under tight time constraints."
"Had a great experience working with Yvenne. She helped put together some strong and balanced contracts for our clients and helped us navigate through some complex clauses and enabled us to make good decisions during contract negotiations. Always responsive and clear in communication. Would definitely use again."
"Yvenne was very thorough and extremely knowledgeable about contracts and MSAs. She was very precise in her articulation of what was wrong with my existing contract and offered helpful feedback to make the adjustments. She was a great pleasure to work with and I'd highly recommend her to anyone on the platform. I'd definitely work with her in the future."
