"I found Beth when I was desperately needing a trademark attorney. She literally saved our business with her handling of some sensitive trademark issues. Since that time, I have used her for all of our legal needs…website contracts, leases, hosting agreements, and other trademark applications. She also was able to assess our needs and make some recommendations that, upon implementation, were much needed. She is always available to assist us and works in a timely and educated manner. And her fees are very reasonable. Small businesses need legal advice, but only on as as-needed basis. It’s great to have a trustworthy lawyer that we can call when the need arises. I would recommend Beth Russell to anyone…we are fortunate to have her on our side. -P.L."
