I retained Emily to represent my small business last year and have had nothing but the most positive experience.

She not only addresses and resolves the matters at hand, but she is a true business advisor offering counsel in how to move my business forward and keep it growing. I have appreciated her concrete suggestions and the fact that she keeps in touch on a regular basis, especially now as all small businesses are facing unprecedented challenges.

I value the balance in Emily’s approach between the sophisticated legal thinking of a large firm and the openness and willingness to work creatively that you often see in smaller boutique firms. Having Emily as legal counsel to Poppy Boutique is a true benefit to my business.

Terrific return on the dollar. I felt like I was her only client. And likewise Emily was on the case. Or cases. I hired her to provide legal advice for closing on a property, for representing me in court for a minor violation and setting up several LLCs.

Happy to say she stayed in close communication and completed all work successfully and quickly. Like manic. Not disappearing but getting the jobs done quickly. Recommend her for legal counsel unreservedly.

From our first conversation, Emily’s approach was as an ally and partner. She took in my details and instantly pivoted to assure me that she had expertise in the area, knowledge of the applicable law, bandwidth to get the job done, and confidence that made me feel good.

Lawyers can throw around legal terms that are understood by colleagues. Not always by clients. Emily was keen to explain the situation from a legal point of view, but then guided me using laymen’s terms and examples. So I felt comfortable with her strategy and I understood fully what was happening. She also made me aware of what steps were going to be taken and what the possible outcomes could be.

Fortunately, I don’t have a need for legal representation very often. But when I do, I am glad that Emily is my ally and will get back to me in a timely manner and with a strategic plan. She responds immediately, which reduces the stress.

Emily conducts here business affairs just as I do. I go to her for her expertise and ability to solve a problem. She does it in law. I do it in design. And when my clients come to me with a big challenge and I assure them that they can relax and I will take care of it because it’s what I do. “Don’t worry. I got this.” And that is exactly how I feel as Emily’s client. I don’t worry. She’s got this.

I own a small interior design company and it's critical that any consultant I engage is able to fully execute the terms of his/her contract, ideally without taking too much of my time, which means they have to be reliable and trustworthy.

I trust Emily's counsel wholeheartedly because I know she cares not only that my legal needs are met, but that I really understand my options as well as the advice she offers. This trust allows me to focus my energy on other aspects of my company, where I'm most needed.
