Knowledgeable and a reputation to back it up!
Miriam Ross, Esq. is absolutely fantastic! She has been a trusted advisor of mine for years and across multiple businesses/industries. She has a vast amount of business and legal knowledge and connections combined with a reputation that is second to none. Whether you need to form an entity, draft internal, supplier, or consumer contracts, NDA's or other legal documents/letters, Miriam A. Ross is the one you need to call. Her knowledge and experience have provided me with the proper legal structure and advice for both of my start-up companies and I will continue to use her services as long as she is in business. She also handles partner disputes with finesse and although I have not used her for this reason yet, I wanted to mention another one of her specialties I am aware she does a great job at!

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
My business hired Miriam to write a contract for a Convertible Note for some potential investors. Miriam helped us set up our business's LLC structure to accommodate such a Note, and helped us execute the agreement successfully. We subsequently hired Miriam to write a Joint Venture Agreement with another individual to pursue an opportunity to grow our business further. Again, Miriam worked with us from the beginning until the agreement was successfully executed to ensure that we got it right. Miriam is thorough, asks the right questions, and always comes to an understanding of exactly what it is that you want. She excels at translating your wants into black-and-white contracts that thoroughly protect your interests, are fair not only to you but also to the individual(s) with whom you're contracting, and that navigate laws and potentially unforeseen scenarios to provide resolutions in advance to potential problems that could occur throughout the duration of the contract. Miriam has helped us lay a solid foundation for our business from which we have been able to thrive, and I would recommend her services to anyone.

An Attorney You Can Count On
Miriam Ross has been the difference maker in helping me guide my business in the right direction. From the early stages of deciding if I was going to be an LLC, to helping me with location contracts for my new business, to non compete contracts and so much more! I would recommend Miriam to anyone that is a small business owner like myself, and is in need of an attorney who has your back the entire way.

Review of Miram A. Ross - testimonial
I have known Miriam for the past seven years both personally and professionally and she has a stellar reputation in both areas. Miriam is a true advocate for small business and women in business. She understands the issues and works diligently and tirelessly as a trusted legal advisor to help clients on day-to-day issues as well as more complex matters including contracts. I can speak to this personally, as Miriam has helped me in both situations. She handled my business incorporation and updates and negotiated a favorable resolution when the name of my program was being contested by a major pubiisher. What stands out for me most about Miriam is her loyalty and dedication. She combines the facts, client needs , her experiences, passion, strong intuition and nuances that bring positive resolution to even the most complex cases.
