"I'm a marketing consultant, and Anna has been my go-to legal resource since starting my business three years ago. She helped to add me to my sister's LLC, set up my business license and DBA, and reviewed client contracts. She's also been a great resource for ad hoc questions that have come up here and there. She's very competent and responsive, which makes things easy and straightforward for me!"
