"I cannot more highly recommend business and technology attorney Jacki Petrovic. I met Jacki while I was working on a project to bridge gaps in my company’s corporate technology contracts. I was very impressed with Jacki’s wealth of knowledge in business and information technology law. She understands how technology applies in the context of business operations and is excellent at identifying the issues that will matter to the business. Jacki leverages many years of experience in negotiating and assisting clients in achieving favorable contractual relationships and she takes a particular interest in helping clients achieve their goals while protecting their legal interests. Jacki also has an amazing ability to make all of her clients feel that they are a priority and she is great at multitasking to quickly deliver excellent quality work. I have worked with her for many years and anytime I get a call from a potential client needing a lawyer for a business or technology matter, Jacki is at the top of my list of recommendations."

"Jacki brings a great breadth of legal knowledge, productivity and fresh air! I worked with Jacki for many months on a set of enterprise Information Security Policies. It was a substantial undertaking because we started from ground zero. In addition to the core group, we also worked with multiple operating companies and their functional divisions so we were working with a large group of people. Jacki was very quick in her creation and review of professional policies. She is great at wording and reasoning. While working with different functional groups, she was also really good at listening, sorting out different perspectives and coming up with agreeable terms quickly. Jacki is very quick! We generally completed the markups in real time and were able to get agreement right on the spot with all of the different parties. With so many business people involved in the project, I feel her ability to quickly reach consensus on the changes was essential to our success. Jacki has a pleasant and bubbly personality, too. Legal work is more interesting with her. I was very happy with her performance and I received complimentary feedback about Jacki from several of our operating companies. You shouldn’t hesitate to reach out to her for legal assistance!"
