“I had a wonderful experience working with Wendy. She was efficient, compassionate, and assertive with getting my matter taken care of. She went above and beyond to make sure my case was handled in a timely manner. I would recommend her to anyone and also would use her in the future if needed. Thank you!”
“I met with Wendy a few weeks ago to simply ask her some questions about asset protection, LLC’s, and how to structure them considering my unique situation. Wendy took the time to ask me questions about my business and then help me figure out the best solution. Wendy is very sharp when it comes to law and very professional. I’ll be following up with her to have her set up some LLC’s to make sure it’s done correctly the first time. Thanks again Wendy for being very personable, professional, and helpful!”
“Wendy worked diligently on my case & was very knowledgeable – she kept me informed in terms I could understand. She helped me immensely with the process standing beside me making me as comfortable as I could be in a bad situation. She is worth more than she charged.”
“Wendy Anderson provided me with exceptional service! I found Wendy through a reference and decided to use her service to set up my LLC. She proactively communicated through the process and had everything done in record time. This allowed me to focus on my business priorities. THANK YOU Wendy!”
“Wendy Anderson just reviewed a set of financial contracts for me and was prompt and thorough. In particular, I asked her to check the legal boiler plate that the financial company inserted at the ends of 3 of the contracts. She identified several items that could have been problems for me if a dispute ever arises, and also found places where ambiguity in the wording could have led to conflicts. A well-done job.”
“Wendy did a fantastic job handling my mom’s estate planning. She met with my mother to review her current will. Finding some issues, she did a new will that was much more effective and protective of her estate. She also devised several other documents to further protect her estate. After my mom passed away, she was there to help execute the documents, answer all of my questions, and has even sent articles on potential scams. Wendy made a very difficult time much easier. I can’t say enough good things about her.”
“Wendy Anderson has prepared contracts for our law firm. We have retained her services more than once and would highly recommend her! Her attention to detail is what sets her apart from the rest.”
“Wendy worked with us on our consulting contracts, plus reviewed a few contracts that I had come in where I needed professional counsel. I found her to be timely, thorough, and totally on top of things. She made several good suggestions and the other party changed their contract accordingly. Her client service exceeded my expectations. I’ll be calling her as our business grows and we need additional services. I highly recommend her.”
“Wendy is very supportive of small business and entrepreneurs. When I needed a contract for my consulting services she asked good questions, was very timely and thorough, and then follow-up to make sure that everything was implementing perfectly. I really appreciate her professionalism. And more than that she’s just a delight to work with. I highly recommend her.”
“I have known Wendy on a personal and professional level for several years. She is a caring person and a very good legal advisor. I had the opportunity to retain her firm to represent me on a case in which the opposition had greater time and resources, and she did an outstanding job looking after my interests. If I should need her services again, I would not hesitate to call.”
