Deb represented my startup in business negotiations with partners and investors, and worked miracles! In setting up deals with worldwide companies, we thought we were on the ropes and she repeatedly worked out terms that fully protected our intellectual property without a negative impact to us.

I once asked her about her talent, and she explained that she viewed negotiation as a way for both parties to get what they want, rather than a winner take all proposition. That, and her track record, earned a lot of respect from me. I occasionally keep in touch, and she is now at her own firm: www.djlcorplaw.com.
