Ms. Birkheimer responded in an extremely prompt way with a thorough review of a circumstance that could have resulted in legal action. Her review included several scenarios, possible impacts from multiple jurisdictions and a sense of the severity of the situation. Her review was pivotal in our determining how we would handle our situation. Thanks, Gretchen!

I consulted Gretchen for some employment advice relating paperwork for both accepting a position as well as leaving a company. The separation paperwork was excessively complicated and needed a keen professional eye.
She was extremely prompt in her turn-around time, very thorough, detailed, and took a genuine interest in my happiness/well being as a client.
She was a joy to work with and I can't recommend her enough.
