In providing legal services to our business for a number of professional concerns over the past year Ms. Jaffe has proven herself to be an attentive, responsive, and tenacious advocate. She has expertly taken us through the process of identifying and reviewing points of concern, presented our options and lead us to successful resolutions.
Through all of our interactions Ms. Jaffe has demonstrated an ability to address our legal concerns with a fine balance of empathy and sober dedication to protecting our interests.
Melissa has helped us understand our needs around intellectual property and contractor agreements for our small online business. She not only has expert knowledge in these areas, but she has an empathic skillfulness in explaining the process and what we needed to know to make good decisions.
We're looking forward to continuing our work with her for further legal assessment and support as needed.
For those of us entrepreneurial types wanting to do business ethically and with heart and often somewhat reluctant to retain lawyers, Melissa provides a sturdy bridge between doing business differently and taking care to cover ourselves legally.
We look forward to a long term relationship with Melissa as our lawyer.
As a small business owner with a small budget legal advice and support has been one of those things that we've needed for a long time, and have avoided out of nervousness about cost and about legal issues themselves.
Melissa has been fantastic- she's speaks our language and gets us, listens and truly hears us, and has been totally on top of what we needed. She's really guided us through the process of putting a critical part of our legal structure in place.
At this point, basically she's our lawyer, and we'll be doing more work with her in the coming years.
Melissa assisted me in the acquisition of an intangible asset involving intellectual property in located Oregon. She also completed the necessary corporate and employment documents to establish our new LLC in Oregon and hire our initial team.
Melissa is not only responsive & knowledgeable about each business transaction, but she is also sincerely interested in making sure our interests are protected while balancing the desires of the other parties involved. I would highly recommend Meilssa Jaffe to others in need of an attorney who is knowledgeable, ethical and attentive.
Melissa provided me with professional service and solid advice in a pinch... I had a recent job offer and the employer's contract had a number of unattractive areas. She was able to broker the right conversation, however, in my case, she was able to expose what would have turned out to be a bad deal, saving me much grief and stress, including a move out of state. Her handling of the situation was top-notch and without her help, I may have gotten myself in a less-than-ideal career/life situation.
