I was referred to Teresa Daggett for her expertise in business contract law. I first hired her to help me form my LLC and continued working with her throughout the process of purchasing a business. Nailing down a business purchase agreement that satisfied both parties took some time and I felt well represented throughout negotiations. After closing the sale, I had need to consult with Teresa again to draw up a non-disparagement contract with a former employee. In each of these tasks, I felt Teresa listened well to my needs, was very accessible and responsive, and expressed a genuine interest in my business and its success. Recently I called Teresa with a non-related, legal question and was warmly received (and remembered). She took a few minutes to offer her thoughts on my question and I was reminded of how generous she is with her time. I would highly recommend working with Teresa Daggett.

We have had a couple of unusual problems lately. As a nonprofit, you often try to figure things out yourself, but we really needed specific guidance and legal knowledge. Teresa helped quickly, efficiently, effectively in both cases. I recommend her highly.

Teresa Was recommended to us by an attorney group in Spokane, WA. We contacted her and were able to get an appointment to see her within a couple days. We sold our business and wanted her to represent us from acceptance of sale to closing. She gave us a very organized schedule on her firm, her work, and the costs and scope of work she would do as well as a well-defined list of needs we could email or fax to her to get started. She was back to us the day after submitting the needs list to go over the data and told us she would be back to us once she had touched base with the buyer's attorney, and did so with a very detailed look at the whole transaction and how we should feel good about their intent and ability to do the deal. She stayed in touch with us nearly every day while she sent papers to their attorney and getting the needs from him she had asked for as well. She amended sections of the purchase agreement several times during the course of the transaction and always highlighted the areas of changes. She also worked hard for us and our best interests. For example, there was a contract for the balance of purchase price that had no interest stated. She stated there needs to be payment of interest and negotiated a fair rate to be paid in the agreement. She also negotiated more collateral to be put behind the continued payments of the five year contract, an issue we were definitely worried about as far as having some peace of mind we would receive the funds
after closing. She also made clear that certain vendors we needed paid that we were in arrears with at the time would be paid. Most importantly, she represented us with the assigned IRS agent to pay and clear the tax liens that had accrued over the past few years of troubled times for the business. She was at her best in helping us get the liens paid as agreed by the seller and fully released by the IRS. Teresa was always cordial, professional, and upbeat in her dealings with us. She made us feel very comfortable during the course of the transaction, even when problems occurred. She gave us a closing checklist that was so organized, we felt sure we knew exactly what was going to happen. She also was instrumental in documents drawn which were construed to be the responsibility of the buyer's attorney, but not completed by him. Such a document was the estoppel letter to be signed by our present landlord at the place of business. Teresa was truly on our side of a transaction we needed to occur due to our difficulties in keeping our business profitable, She knew our deal was skinny as far as what we needed in order to pay off our business notes and lines of credit as well liens to IRS. Knowing this, she gave us a break on her normally charged rate, which really aided our ouy of pocket concerns. The sellers changed closing dates three times due to their stated needs and she kept us up to date on our concerns about these delays and assured us the intent was there to close and that July 6th would be the final extension as it was. All in all she always kept us informed and feeling good things were going to happen and that she would make sure all contacts were made and all needs were met, many times by her taking things on herself to get done. She thanked us for being such gracious customers, which we thought was so professional, when she was the one that did all the work and was so gracious throughout. My wife and I can't say enough about the professional and gracious way we were treated as well as the diligent and organized work she completed for us. Thank You, so much Teresa for being there for us and making the long journey of completing the sale of our business so easy.

Teresa Daggett did a great job handling all the legal aspects and issues of a business acquisition for me. She is very knowledgeable, thorough, and a good communicator (both with me and with the other associated parties that need to be in the loop). I appreciated the fact that Teresa knew what needed to be done to protect my interests and those of our company, and she took charge and handled those matters that needed to be handled. Her rates are reasonable, and when I consider the quality and quantity of her work, I felt like I got good value for the money. I would highly recommend Teresa.

The trouble with experts is their specialization. Teresa's secret is bringing others' expertise into conversations so she's never the road block to best advice, strong strategy and reliable results. Neither limited by expertise or work style, its hard to imagine a stronger legal partner for our business.

Terest has been a pleasure to work with. She knows the law and responds in a quick and efficient manner. Our organization needed to file for recognition as an organization and to achieve tax free status. Teresa understood our problems and went right to work on this. She cleared up our problem and did so for a very reasonable price.

As the co-founder of a small start-up, I needed an attorney who understood all the intricacies of starting a business, from drafting employment contracts to creating securities offerings. Teresa Daggett came highly recommended by a local CEO and given that endoresment, I had high expectations. That said, Teresa consistently exceeds my expectations; she's exceptionally responsive by phone or email, works hard to answer any questions accurately and turns over work product with extraordinary speed, She's also incredibly conscientious about costs, which as a cash-strapped start-up founder, I greatly appreciate!

Ms. Daggett came highly recommended by another attorney I was working with on another matter. I met with her to find out if she could help me draw up the needed form for selling my consulting practice. That was her specialty and she said he could be of great benefit. About a year later when I found the right buyer, I contacted her again to draw up the the forms based on the mutually agreeable terms with the buyer. She not only addressed all of the topics I had discussed with the buyer, she addressed other vital topics as well. Was I charged more for the additional work. No, she charged me exactly what we had initially agreed upon. I highly recommend her to handle a transfer of ownership project.

I worked with Teresa to make sure I wasn't violating any parts of the non-compete clauses in the various contracts I was under by taking on some new work. Not only did she validate this, but she provided edits to the new contract that levelled the playing field more in my favor as well as provided some recommendations about structuring my consulting business. I will return to here for review and help with future contracts.

I am so grateful that I found Teresa. She helped me with a very sensitive matter involving a former employee. Teresa immediately understood how time sensitive the issue was and worked quickly to get the matter resolved. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about the law, she was very supportive and empathetic to my situation. Teresa really helped me get through a very emotional situation by working hard to put my mind at ease and by just being a genuinely nice and thoughtful person.
