“Carly was pivotal at the outset of our project and she had the answers and toolkit we needed to act quickly and responsibly.  The business world can be a complicated place when you first start out and we needed a lawyer to help us put together a framework for long term success.  Carly was organized, effective, adaptive and responsible.  She accomplished the things we asked of her and pointed us towards some issues we had not yet considered: a great addition to the team.”

Ryan Donovan, Co-Owner of Richmond Station and West Side Beef
