"Christina managed a complex digital media copyright issue with clarity, wisdom, extensive knowledge and the steel resolve you want in an attorney when you need it. Her advice was well balanced between legal technicality and practical application for the particular area we were working in. I always felt that Christina stayed on top of my needs and followed through to the best solution."
"While we are in the middle of working out a settlement, our interactions with Christina have surpassed expectations. She is knowledgable, understanding, and very straightforward. I have never been involved in anything requiring legal assistance, and I'm very grateful that my first experience has been with Christina. I trust that her expertise and knowledge will continue to be a huge benefit to our case."
"For over three years I have had the pleasure of retaining Ms. Saunders to assist me in the negotiation of multiple, complex business contracts as well as copyright and trademark licensing agreements. I am continually impressed by her dedication, extensive knowledge and competency. Ms. Saunders repeatedly goes above and beyond the necessary requirements by providing in-depth research and strategic planning to ensure a successful outcome and seamless communication. She is consistently prepared with necessary materials and embodies an ability to utilize any and all resources to effectively complete each assignment. Her timely responses to my emails and requests demonstrates her commitment to me as her client."
"I have known and worked with Christina for a couple years now for our startup. She always goes out of her way to be diligent, keep us informed about potential risks, and present us with a host of options and advice when we meet legal hurdles. In particular, she has done an impeccable job in filing and protecting all of our intellectual property. We were pretty unclear about where our product/service would land and she helped us make sure it was protected regardless of the direction we decided to proceed in. I always feel comfortable asking for her advice, counsel, and support and know that she has the answer or can find it quickly. I have referred numerous friends and colleagues her way and am pleased that their experience has been just as wonderful. I have nothing but positive things to say about Christina and her work."
"If you are looking for a run of the mill, I will get back to you when I have time attorney, Press on, they are a dime a dozen. If you want an attorney that answers e mails at 6 am and as late as 9 pm on the same day. Takes care of every issue as it arises and is worth every penny you will spend. STOP! She is right here. Definitely recommend!"
"After a series of ineffective lawyers, I found Christina, who has since helped me navigate a very complex situation, keeping my needs and long-term goals in mind. I'm happy I finally found her so we can continue working together over the years!"
