"I consider myself supremely lucky to have found Terri DiPaolo. She has been absolutely indispensable to almost every aspect of our operation. She is a smart, tough, tenacious and resourceful attorney who has helped us with contracts, licenses and negotiations, and more. She has a knack for grasping the entire situation, and being able to fit together various pieces of complicated transactions. We trust her in every facet of our dealings."

"Terri and I were on opposite sides of a negotiation. She demonstrated acute business acumen and an understanding of both her client's position and ours. She got the best for her client but in an expeditious responsive manner that also worked well for us. Terri found practical workable solutions to issues. On a personal level, Terri was also incredibly pleasant to deal with throughout the negotiation even when we were at potentially deal breaking issues. This always makes a negotiation much more bearable!"
