Subcontractor agreement
We're a nonprofit that uses subcontractors to teach workshops and provide storytelling coaching, and over the years, we've developed a good deal of intellectual property such as workshop templates and handouts. Our subcontractors also have access to things such as survey results and participant contact information, so we determined that we should have a subcontractor agreement in place. I reached out to Andrea, and after meeting with me to discuss the specifics, she drafted an agreement which we are now starting to use. She was super helpful throughout the process, answering my many questions with not just the "what" but also the "why". It's a huge relief to have this new tool that will help protect the org's proprietary information - and set clear expectations with our contractors. Highly recommend to anyone else who works with subcontractors.

Best Interest In Mind...
I put a "cry for help" out to Facebook looking for a lawyer in realestate to review and potentially negotiate the lease to my first large commercial property. Andrea, along with many others responded. I chose Andrea due to her negotiations in contracts at my current location, as well as her quick response and willingness to work with a not for profit. Andrea was consistent in her responses, and very stern on subjects that were clearly not a mutual agreement between myself and the landlord. In the end, the negotiations were completed successfully and I am now the proud tenant of a new commercial space, with a lease I can be comfortable with. I would recommend Andrea!

Couldn't do it without her
Andrea is our go-to attorney, providing a level of expertise we often don't know that we need. I had a great experience navigating a severance with Andrea. She is currently guiding me through a complicated real estate transaction. We appreciate her direct, practical style and her willingness to go the extra mile to meet deadlines and avoid unforeseen glitches. She has our highest recommendation.
