Dedicated and Determined
Zach Kline has the endurance to achieve the best possible result for his client. I was so reassured by Zach's manner and his clear methods of negotiation on my behalf. He was sensitive to my wishes, yet shielded me from the stress of the actual negotiation, always keeping me informed and patiently explaining the nuances of the situation. Importantly, he saved me a lot of money and time. I recommend Zach Kline wholeheartedly to represent your interests in any business matter.

Very knowledgeable of the healthcare system
Zac at Resolute Legal was very supportive in helping our nonprofit chart a path forward with our new membership model. Zac and team helped us extensively with rewriting our member terms of service. We look forward to leveraging Zac's expertise for future projects.

Necessary calm during stressful times
I worked with Zac to help negotiate a new employment contract, and, given it was a position at an executive level, the contract had some degree of complexity. Zac not only was amazing at identifying possible areas of concern, but was also such a calm presence during the stressful negotiation process. He was able to provide advice beyond just the contract, and alleviated a ton of pain points. Plus, he was quick to respond, and made himself readily available. I could not recommend him enough!

Easy to Access, Honest, Straightforward
I spoke to Zach regarding an online disclaimer/disclosure related to stocks, ect in an online chat room essentially. He was able to provide me with good advice when I called him out of the blue and he will hopefully connect me to a different lawyer (whose specialties may lie a bit closer to stocks, ect).

Down to Earth and to the Point
Zac made the first time ever dealing with a lawyer easy and straight forward. As some reviews have said here, he is a no B.S. guy and the conversations are as if one of your buddies studied law and got himself a sweet lawyer gig. This was nothing like I had imagined and his demeanor allowed for some great conversations, especially considering how clueless I was with my issue. He took the time to consult what options we had and didn't leave me out to hang high and dry in the decision making process without the proper information into what we were facing. Zac definitely made this an incredibly easy and relaxed process.

Highly Recommend
Zac was great. He prepared thoroughly for our consultation and was ready with answers and recommendations. He was a careful listener who managed to be warm and friendly without any b.s. He was very knowledgeable and laid out all the possibilities and options -- I left the consultation feeling informed and prepared.

Unrivaled service
Zac Kline was a true professional. He provided a great client experience from our initial consultation all the way to delivering the contract. Zac asked thoughtful questions to guarantee that our needs were met in a short time period. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a business services lawyer.

Negotiation Pro. 110% Dedicated.
Our startup worked with Zach to draft a manufacturing services agreement and negotiate IP rights and warranties. During this time, Zach provided invaluable guidance and always made himself available to thoroughly answer any questions we had (this included explaining legal concepts in a clear and understandable manner and helping us prepare for negotiations beyond his scope of work). What we appreciated most about Zach is how personally invested he was in our success – before developing our legal strategy, he took the time to really understand our business goals. Zach has our highest recommendation, and we look forward to working with him in the future.

Great lawyer
I am developing an app and reached out to Zac for some help reviewing the terms of use agreements of a few media companies. Zac did some research, looked into existing cases that were similar to ours, and provided us with some valuable feedback as well as some personal insight. Zac has a great energy and put in a lot of work without charging us for the consultation. It seemed he was interested in building a relationship with us as his clients, not just looking for an easy payday. I plan on using Zac again in the future and think he will be a great asset to our app development team.

Fantastic Experience!
Zac just gets it and was the perfect fit for us. We do video production work and were evaluating a new opportunity to offer clients. Zac stepped in quickly, and at reasonable price, he addressed the risks we had identified + took a collaborative approach to negotiations with our customers that was consistent with our own client-centric approach. We will use Zac and Enhance Law again.

Understanding the Plights of a Small Business Owner!
I had Zac review a copyright license agreement for me. He went deep on the key legal issues but then framed the results of that research in terms of practical negotiation considerations. Zac was a zealous advocate and nice to work with. He took a personal interest in the outcome of my matter, and I appreciated that. I would recommend him to any small business owner looking to tighten up their contracts or for advice in commercial negotiations.

Great experience!!!
Experienced business lawyer who was thorough and collaborative. I reached out to him to review an LLC agreement and Zac went the extra mile, asking preliminary questions and requesting related documentation that might affect his answer. He provided a clear and practical review and recommendations. I genuinely enjoyed working with him and will use him in the future. Two thumbs up.”

Smart, Clear, Practical and on point. Strongly recommend.
Zac Kline gives refreshingly clear and practical advice. He listened carefully to the contractual discussions we’ve been having with another company, and then gave us clear advice which helped to avoid signing a contract that would have created problems for both parties. On short notice, Zac prepared a copyright license agreement that correctly recast our business discussions. I would recommend this attorney to anyone needing assistance with business contracts. Many thanks!
