"As a growing startup, with operations in California and Texas, we worked with Christina on setting up the foundation of our employee group. What we do is a little outside the norm and we sought Christina's advice in how to organize our employees in groups that would work under California and Texas law, but also in a way that would promote harmony and equity amongst our employees, which ranged from senior, founding employees to on-boarding brand new employees. She understood our business and was able to speak to us in real terms, rather than in legalese. She also understood the special circumstances we were trying to accommodate and came up with creative solutions so that we could do what we wanted and comport with the law. We liked her out-of-the-box approach to solving problems and that she understood our business and our goals."
"Christina conducted an in-depth audit/review of what we felt were our highest-risk employment classifications, which included interviewing many very technical employees with different backgrounds/education/language/cultures. Her ability to take highly technical employees/jobs and distill the key components into real-life, understandable terms helped us to understand how she analyzed their roles and properly classified them under the law. We asked her to give oral reports as well as extensive written reports of her findings and were impressed with her work product and timeliness. We would definitely use her again."
